Britain’s Dan Evans went down in straight-sets to Roger Federer

Defending two-time champion Roger Federer was pushed to the limit early in his second round match by Dan Evans but the third seed held firm to seal a straight-sets victory.

Evans gave a reminder of just what a talented tennis player he is by giving the 20-time Grand Slam champion a severe test of his championship credentials.

The 28-year-old from Birmingham reached his career high two years ago by defeating Marin Cilic in Melbourne to make the fourth round before his two-year ban for taking cocaine.
