Britain's Laura Robson has been given a wild card to play in the main draw at Wimbledon later this month.

Robson reached the last 16 at the All England Club in 2013 but her career has since been ravaged by a recurring wrist injury.

Ranked 308th in the world, she has shown glimpses of a return to form in recent weeks but is still struggling for consistency, her best win this year coming against world number 117 Klara Koukalova.

The 22-year-old has been using her protected ranking, a privilege extended to players coming back from long-term injuries, to enter major tournaments but after Wimbledon she will have to qualify by right.

Fellow Britons Tara Moore and Katie Swan, the promising 17-year-old, have also been given Wimbledon wild cards along with Liam Broady, James Ward and Alex Ward in the men's singles.

Gordon Reid's winning grand slam run came to an end with defeat by Gustavo Fernandez in the men's wheelchair final at the French Open.

The Scot won his maiden slam title at the Australian Open in January, a run that included victory over speedy Argentinian Fernandez.

Reid, 24, reached the final by knocking out world number one Stephane Houdet but could not capitalise on a good start against Fernandez and lost 7-6 (7-4) 6-1.

Reid led 4-2 but was outplayed thereafter as 22-year-old Fernandez clinched his first grand slam title.
