James Ward: Season is over

James Ward: Season is over

British Davis Cup player James Ward will not play again this season because of a torn tendon in his wrist.

It is rough luck on the 25-year-old, who was looking to climb towards the top 100 after reaching the second round of Wimbledon in June and pushing Mardy Fish to five sets.

But he fractured his left wrist in a training fall in the United States in July and then retired in his quarter-final at his third comeback event in Shanghai earlier this month because of pain in the joint.

Ward, who has dropped to 252nd in the rankings, revealed the bad news today, saying on Twitter: "Injury update .... torn tendon in the same wrist I fractured after wimby so I won't play again this year!! Gutted!!"
