London - British No 2 James Ward ended up in hospital following his marathon heroics during the Davis Cup at the weekend.
The world No 214 played two gruelling five-setters in Britain's shock 3-2 win over Russia in Coventry.
Ward won a tough match against world No 67 Dmitry Tursunov 6-4 in the fifth set on Sunday but that success, one of his best ever results, came at a price.
Ward ended up on a hospital drip.
He told lta.org.uk: "I thought sleep would help me recover from the weekend but by yesterday (Monday) afternoon I wasn't feeling too good so I went to my local A and E.
"The staff there were great. They put me on a drip and let me go at midnight. I'm feeling much better today and I'm still hoping to make it to the States next week."
