Tennis on the BBC

Cornish tennis player Ben Kelly has said his first experience representing Great Britain at the Deaf Davis Cup will stand him in good stead.

The 17-year-old, who is from St Dennis and trains in Bodmin, won five of his eight matches at the recent tournament in Izmir, Turkey.

"I was really pleased," he told BBC Cornwall.

"I've actually made an effort and it's paid off, but it's been a long journey and it's definitely worth it."
