james always plays well here
he's made it past R1 once on grass when he reached the semis iirc

Rola was spraying errors everywhere, could tell he wasn't used to the surface

I think this was Rola's seventh match at main tour level, and his first on grass. His inexperience showed a little bit at the end of both sets, and he essentially donated them, especially the second set.

He was sliding around quite a bit on the surface, and his volley was suspect, but he actually looked pretty strong off both wings, and had a nice backhand slice. I could see Rola move higher than his current ranking of 91. Ward, on the other hand, I am not so sure.

Expected result. If Rola lost to Ward on clay at RG, he was never going to beat him on grass. He's finding his feet well on the main tour though and I expect him to rise up the rankings. :yeah:
