Britain’s Dan Evans has been awarded a wild card into the Fever-Tree Championships at Queens next month.
The 28-year-old is ranked 77th in the world after rising over 1000 places in the last year following his 12-month ban for taking cocaine.
Evans joins fellow Brits Kyle Edmund and Cameron Norrie in the draw, while Juan Martin del Potro and defending champion Marin Cilic will also play.

Evans said: “I’m grateful for the wild card and excited to be playing at Queen’s again this year as the Fever-Tree Championships is one of the best events on tour.
“The grass season is a great time of year, especially for the Brits, and I am looking forward to competing against many of the best players in the world.”
A wild card has been reserved for Andy Murray if he is fit to play after his hip operation. Last year’s runner-up Novak Djokovic and 2008 champion Rafael Nadal also have spots reserved if they opt to take them.
The competition, held at The Queen’s Club, runs between June 17-23.
