In tennis one of the toughest things to undergo is the qualifying rounds of a tournament and of all the tournaments the one that is possibly the toughest is the qualifying event for Wimbledon.

It is the only one that plays the final round across five sets and as you will find out the only one where qualifying matches is not played at the same site as the actual event. So if you make it into the main draw the sense of satisfaction is quite fantastic.

We caught up with an Australian player, Sam Groth ranked 125 in the world, who made it through the qualifying and into the main draw and asked him what it was like to get through and also about how tough things can be on the tour if you are not necessarily one of those top 100 guys.

He gave us his story and handed out a bit of advice to any player trying desperately hard to make it.
