Biography

Archibald Warden was a distinguished doctor who graduated from Glasgow University in 1893. His first practice was in Glasgow before moving to Paris in the latter part of the 19th century when he obtained an MD (Doctor of Medicine). His moving to Paris would explain his involvement in the Olympic Games. Warden moved from the French capital to the South of France and established his own medical practice in Cannes.

Warden's first major tennis tournament was the East of Scotland championships at St Andrews in 1891. Although he lost his first round match it took four tough sets for W Dunn to beat the Edinburgh youngster. At the Paris Olympics Warden competed in all three events and won a bronze medal in the mixed doubles with his Bohemian partner [Hedwiga Rosenbaumová]. The following year (1901) Warden reached the men's singles quarter-final of the Paris International championship before losing to the top French player [Max Decugis]. Nearly all of Warden's tennis was played on the Côte d'Azur and his last major tournament in 1937 saw him reach the last eight of the Cap d’Antibes one month before his 68th birthday. His son Kay was also a keen tennis player.
