WARD COACH AGONY
DAVIS CUP stalwart James Ward has revealed the anguish that led to a difficult end to 2015 for him. His coach, Australian Darren Tandy, is seriously ill with colon cancer, which has brought an end to their working relationship. He received an initial diagnosis after Wimbledon and suffered a stroke while they were together at the US Open. ‘The most important thing is Darren’s health and it has been an upsetting and worrying situation,’ said Ward.
