‌Britain’s tennis player Dan Evans has revealed he is ‘heartbroken’ after suffering a serious injury during the Queen’s ATP Championship. The 34-year-old faced Brandon Nakashima of America in the first round but faced an injury towards the end of the second round. The injury looked serious when it happened, and the player was in considerable pain.
The injury could not have come at a worse time for any player, especially when the third Grand Slam of the year — Wimbledon — and the Paris Olympics are just weeks away. Wimbledon 2024 will begin on the 01st of July, whereas the Olympics will start on July 26 in the capital city of France.
Evans, talking to the media after the match, stated that he was ‘heartbroken’ and that he would undergo a scan in the next 48 hours.
“I’m heartbroken at the minute,” he said.‌ “It’s probably the worst thing you can do on the grass. [Your leg goes one way and] Your body goes one way. We have all seen that sort of motion before. You wince if you’re watching, and you hope it’s not too bad if it’s happening to you. I’ve got to wait 48 hours, let it settle, and then get a scan. Yeah, I’m worried. I’m in limbo a bit."
If Evans misses the upcoming edition of Wimbledon, it will be the first time since 2018 that the Birmingham-born will not compete on home soil.
Evans did not have a great time on the court in 2024. This year, he has only managed to win three matches out of 17 and suffered 14 defeats. Overall, the former world number 21 won 14 sets out of 41 and lost 31. One area where Evans struggled this year is his ability to convert break points.
Last year, the 2015 Davis Cup winner converted 113 break points in 46 matches, whereas this year, he has only converted 49 break points in 25 outings.
