Result: Dan Evans qualifies for second Challenger event in Loughborough

Dan Evans will earn more ATP Tour ranking points this week after qualifying for the Challenger tournament in Loughborough.

Dan Evans has secured a place in the main draw at this week's Challenger event in Loughborough.

The British player is currently attempting to make his way back up the world rankings after serving a drugs ban, and the 27-year-old currently sits at 1194th in the standings.

However, Monday's 6-4 7-6 victory over Germany's Tobias Simon means that the Birmingham-based player will make further inroads when the listings are updated next Monday.

Evans has been given a tough draw in the opening round, with Austrian Max Purcell - the second seed - standing in his way either on Tuesday or Wednesday.

Last month, Evans came through qualifying in a second-tier event in Glasgow before losing in the last 32.
