IT’S EVERY tennis players’ dream to play at Wimbledon and Arbroath’s Jonny O’Mara is no exception.

The Letham Grange youngster will make his debut at the All England Club this weekend after claiming a place in the junior championship draw.

His appearance at the world famous venue comes after several busy weeks for the 17-year-old who made his senior tour debut last week at the Aegon International tournament in Eastbourne.

Jonny played well but was narrowly beaten by a Russian player who had a world ranking of 245.

In the past few months, Jonny has now become a professional tennis player and now spends a lot of his time at the national tennis centre in Roehampton, London.

He is coached by former British number one and one time world number four Greg Rusedski.
