Evans to compete at Aegon Trophy

British number two Dan Evans will compete at the Aegon Trophy in Nottingham ahead of this year's Wimbledon Championships.

Tournament organisers confirmed Evans as one of nine top-100 players in their line-up on Monday morning.

Defending champion Matthew Ebden returns to try and win his title again, with last year's losing finalist, Benjamin Becker, also on board.

Sergiy Stakhovsky, who beat Roger Federer at SW19 last year, will also play, with world number 53 Igor Sijsling the highest-ranked entrant.

The tournament starts on June 3.
