Glasgow return confirmed for Evans

16th April 2018, 11:56 by James Mason

Dan Evans is to return to action at the Glasgow Trophy this month after completing his drugs ban.

The former British number four, who is yet to break his duck on the ATP Tour, tested positive for cocaine during the Barcelona Open last year and was subsequently handed a one-year suspension.

Evans is now eligible to return to the sport and he has been handed a wildcard by the Lawn Tennis Association for the ATP Challenger event in Glasgow, which gets underway on April 28.

The 27-year-old, who lost in the final of the 2017 Sydney International, says he was grateful for the opportunity handed to him and is hoping to get his career back on track.

In a brief statement, Evans was quoted as saying by Eurosport: "I have learned a lot about myself in my time away from the game, a sport that I love very dearly."
