Dan Evans: 'Paris Masters withdrawal down to missing baggage'

British number three Dan Evans says that he was forced to withdraw from the Paris Masters because his racquet bag never made it to the French capital.

Dan Evans has been forced to withdraw from the qualifying rounds of the Paris Masters after his baggage went missing en route to the French capital.

After four weeks away from the court, the British number three had been scheduled to return to action against Lukas Rosol on Saturday morning in a bid to progress through to the main draw of the final Masters Series tournament of the season.

However, Vasek Pospisil emerged as a late replacement for the 26-year-old and he soon took to social media to explain his absence.


Evans - who is currently ranked at 60 in the ATP world rankings - is not expected to compete again until the new season starts in the New Year.
