Evans records first main draw win of 2014 in Zagreb

More joy for Britain as Evans wins Zagreb opener - Tennis

Fresh from the joys of their Davis Cup success. There was yet another success story for British men's tennis. Dan Evans reached the second round at the ATP Zagreb tournament after a solid 63 61 win over world 106 Jan Hajek. Evans reached the main draw via a lucky loser spot and will face qualifier Michael Berrer. Berrer battled to a three sets win over the extremely talented youngster Borna Coric yesterday. So far this year Evans has qualified for the main draw in Doha after winning three qualifying rounds but lost in the second round of qualifying for the Australian Open.

Elsewhere at the tournament 8th seed Lukas Rosol suffered a disappointing 36 67 loss against Israel's Dudi Sela. 2008 champion Sergiy Stakhovsky also went out. Stakhovsky (aka the man who beat Federer in Wimbledon last year) lost a close two set's match to Andrey Kuznetsov. The final scoreline was 46 67 (8-10). Finally Andrey Golubev has to fight in to the next round after a battle with 2005 French Open quarter finalist Victor H─ânescu. In the two hours and 22 minuets match. Golubev saved 8 out of the 10 break points he faced. The final score was 76 46 76.
