sad news indeed grab but I guess it was expected given how ill he'd been?

Wardy got through his first round of AO qualies, but made things hard for himself. Really should have taken the first set 6-2, but got broken twice when serving it out and then had to battle through a really tight tie break. He eventually won 7-6 6-4, about a minute after Dan Evans won by the same scoreline.

Wardy will face Novikov in round 2.

Wardy apparently suffered a lower back spasm during the match, there was a lengthy gap at 6-5 before the tiebreak and I assumed one of them had an issue, sorry to hear it was James. Hope he recovers ok for the second round.

Unfortunately Wardy lost in QR2. Really needed a day between matches for that back spasm to settle.
