James Ward

He trains at Juan Carlos Ferrero's Equelite Academy.

He's received his first ever WC for an ATP Tour event already.

Aged 20, currently ranked 851.

Re: James Ward

i was just going to start a thread about him, but you beat me to it.

not only is he lucky to have gotten this wildcard, but he has been lucky with his first round draw. saying that, he'll still lose.

It's 6-5* 40-40

Two points away from the first set.

Re: James Ward

He takes the first set 7-6(2).

This could be an extraordinary revelation.
Imagine winning an ATP match before even playing a challenger match.
Indeed there must have been a reason why they gave him the WC.

Re: James Ward

James lost 7-6 4-6 3-6

Good fight but too many important points lost.

He converted 3/8 BPs
Gensse converted 5/6 BPs

Re: James Ward

good effort form James Ward against a player ranked far above him!

If only Mackin had beaten Gensse in qualifying we could have had a definate Brit in R2.

Should be great experience for Ward. He's back on futures tour in Spain F14 next week
