A clash with the king of the grass Roger Federer is the carrot being dangled in front of Conor Niland following the Limerick man’s success in the Wimbledon qualifiers.

The Birmingham born 29 year old beat Nikola Mektic in a rain interrupted final qualifier to put his name in the hat for the main draw, where he drew French man Adrian Mannarino.

Should he beat the world number 53 then Niland will face a second round match against the 16 time Grand Slam title winner
