Camden’s James Ward was at Downing Street today (Tuesday) as Prime Minister David Cameron congratulated Great Britain’s Davis Cup squad on their historic triumph.
Britain beat Belgium in the final over the weekend to win the international team competition for the first time in 79 years.
Ward was not part of the side that competed in Ghent after team captain Leon Smith opted to give Kyle Edmund the second singles spot alongside Andy Murray.
But Ward was a central figure in the celebrations, having been the only British player apart from Andy Murray and Jamie Murray to win a rubber after beating USA’s John Isner in the first round in March.
