    James Ward

    Wardy has been playing in a FUTURES event in Taipei.

    Not sure why because it's only 10/11 days since he pulled out of playing DC for GBR.
    He perhaps thought a Futures would be a 'gentler' tourney to get 'back' into the tour?

    Anyway - he ended up being ranked top seed #1.

    R1: James Ward GBR [1/WC] WR153 beat Che-Ching Yeh TPE [Q] UNR 6-0 6-3
    R2: James Ward (1/WC) WR153 defeated Ho Chih-Jen (TPE) WR 1177 by 4 & 1
    QF: James Ward (1/WC) WR153 lost to (PR) Daniel King-Turner (NZL) UNR (*)


    Really not good for James; there was very little competition here and he had a good chance to win the tourney and post up some much needed points. Perhaps he went back to competition too soon?

    (*) According to the APT site, Daniel King-Turner currently has no ranking, but a career high of 217 (19.07.10)! Must be easing himself back into the swing of things after a long-term injury...

    Certainly a disappointing result, though maybe James wasn't totally fit.
