Ward through to second qualifying round
British No.2 James Ward progressed to the second round of US Open qualifying though compatriots Dan Evans and Daniel Smethurst both bowed out.
Ward set up a meeting with Vincent Millot after seeing off Aldin Setkin 6-2 6-2.
However, Evans - who reached the third round of the main draw last year - and Smethurst both followed Dan Cox and Naomi Broady in exiting the qualifying draw.
Evans spurned a match point before eventually losing 4-6 7-6(9) 6-2 to Jimmy Wang, while Smethurst was beaten 6-1 6-2 by Konstantin Kravchuk in just 50 minutes.
