Tennis: Billy Harris to make Wimbledon debut

Manx tennis player handed a wildcard for next month's Grand Slam event

Manx tennis player Billy Harris will make his Wimbledon debut next month after being selected for a wildcard place in the men's singles draw.

It comes after the 29-year-old reached a career-high ranking of 162 earlier this week, before winning his first match at Queen's yesterday.

That victory, his first at an ATP 500 event, is likely to see him ranked in the top 150 when rankings are updated next week.

Harris will find out who he'll play in the first round when the draw is announced next Friday.

He'll also feature in the men's doubles alongside British player Liam Broady.
