GLOBE'S Alex Bogdanovic failed to make the most of his wild card in the Artois Championships and crashed out in straight sets to Australian qualifier Joseph Sirianni at Queen's on Monday, writes Patrick Mooney.
However, the British No.3 received a boost later in the week when he was handed a wild card for this year's Wimbledon Championships.
"I did not serve too well against Sirianni and I think that is one area I will have to improve, especially playing on grass," Bogdanovic told Ham&High Sport. "Credit to Sirammi, he played well. He qualified and won three matches on grass. For me, it was my first match on grass."
Boggo, who is working with American coach Brad Gilbert, will continue his grass court preparation for Wimbledon by playing in the Nottingham tournament next week.

"The one thing that Brad and I have been working on is being aggressive. And if I don't do that I've got no chance.
