- British No 3 Evans could miss next week’s Aegon International in Eastbourne
- He has been struggling with a calf injury and missed Nottingham Open
- Evans was also forced out of Queen’s this week and is struggling for games
Dan Evans’ hopes of playing at Wimbledon suffered another blow when he was forced to pull out of next week’s Aegon International in Eastbourne.
The British No 3 had to retire during his quarter-final against Dustin Brown at Surbiton two weeks ago after pulling up suddenly with a calf injury.
Evans was seen on crutches at last week’s tournament in Nottingham and was also forced out of the Aegon Championships at Queen’s Club this week.

Evans is currently ranked No 3 in Great Britain and No 50 worldwide but could miss Wimbledon
With less than two weeks until the start of Wimbledon, time is fast running out for the world No 50 to recover in time.
It is cruel timing for the 27-year-old, who rates grass as his favourite surface and reached the third round of Wimbledon last year.
