As Ash Barty looks to Wimbledon, another Ipswich local is preparing to defend his world title on the tennis court.
Archie Graham (pictured) is currently the men’s singles world champion for Athletes with an Intellectual Impairment.
He’s won the world title not once, but four times, proving Ipswich produces world class tennis stars.
The 25-year-old, who has Asperger’s Syndrome, won his first world title, at the International Federation for Athletes with Intellectual Impairment Tennis World Championships.
After playing around the world, Archie hopes to win a fifth consecutive world title later this year in Brisbane.
