Queen’s | Evans Loses, Edmund wins

Queen’s | Evans Loses, Edmund wins

Dan Evans, who is still awaiting news of a possible wild card for Wimbledon, missed out on a first-round win at Queen’s which could well have tipped the decision in his favour.

It was another battling performance by the former British No.2, but he wasn’t able to pull it off going down 6-4 0-6 7-5 to the world No 26 Adrian Mannarino, after failing to serve for the match at the decider.

There was probably a bit of nerves playing my first match on grass this year and in front of my home fans Kyle Edmund

Evans dominated the second set and had his chance to secure the win in the third, but left the Fever-Tree Championships frustrated.

It was left to Kyle Edmund to maintain British interest in the championships and he duly obliged with a positive performance over Ryan Harrison, defeating the American 7-6(4) 6-4. He now moves on to face Nick Kyrgios and will no doubt be keen to avenge the Australian’s victory over compatriot Andy Murray earlier in the day.

“I didn’t get off to the best of starts,” said Edmund. “There was probably a bit of nerves playing my first match on grass this year and in front of my home fans.”
