Updated: June 13, 2011

Ireland tennis star Conor Niland has won his first match of the qualifying tournament for Wimbledon, after claiming the final set of his match in dramatic fashion.

Niland beat Josselin Ouanna 6-3 4-6 8-6, having fought back from 5-2 down in the final set. He now requires just two more wins if he is to make it to the first round proper. He will face either Paolo Lorenzi or Greg Jones next.
