James Ward has revealed that he is determined to push on from his positive showing at Wimbledon.
Wildcard Ward saw his SW19 campaign come to a crushing end on Saturday night following defeat to Vasek Pospisil, but he believes that there are plenty of positives to take away for the remainder of the year.
"I learned a lot because I know I can mix it with the top players and that gives me confidence," he told BBC Sport. "Now I just have to build on it. Making the top 100 is a big milestone and I have a few more years left.
"It has been a great week but it was a tough one to lose. I have had my fair share of five-set wins and losses and obviously it hurts."
Ward, currently ranked at 111 in the world, had never previously reached the last 32 of a Grand Slam.
