Evans ha won a total of 10 straight matches after he took the Surbiton title. The 29 year old is set to take on three-time grand slam winner Stan Wawrink for the first round of the Queen’s. The British player, who is currently world number 70, was banned from the sport for the entire of a year in 2017 due to cocaine use, but has already been assured a main draw slot in Wimbledon.

France’s Caroline Garcia justified her place as top seed thanks to a victory over Croatian Donna Vekic for the Nature Valley Open women’s final.
The world number 28 returned from a set down to win 2-6 7-6 _7-4) 7-6 (7-4), ending the game in a total of two hours and 39 minutes.
