ROBREDO BEATS EVANS 7-5 4-6 3-6 1-6

Evans’ brief adventure at Roland Garros is over – the Brit bowing out with a double-fault.

17:33 

EVANS 7-5 4-6 3-6 1-5 ROBREDO.

Evans has a glimmer at 30-40, but it soon fades as Robredo holds his nerve. The Spaniard is nearly home.

17:16

BREAK! EVANS 7-5 4-6 3-6 0-1 ROBREDO.

Evans ships another one into the net. His woes on clay continue…

17:06

ROBREDO WINS THIRD SET 6-3!

Finally, a hold of serve! Sadly, for GB fans anyway, it goes to Robredo, who has one foot in the second round.

17:04

CANCEL THE COMEBACK. EVANS 7-5 4-6 3-5 ROBREDO.

More twists than a M. Night Shyamalan flick.

16:58

AND THE COMEBACK IS BACK ON… EVANS 7-5 4-6 3-4 ROBREDO.

Three straight breaks. The searing heat (30+ degrees Celsius) is absolutely sapping these two. Robredo meekly concedes the latest with a double-fault.

16:55

COMEBACK? EVANS 7-5 4-6 2-3 ROBREDO.

Perhaps…

16:45

HOLD, BREAK, HOLD! EVANS 7-5 4-6 0-3 ROBREDO.

It’s suddenly slipping away from Evans… He looks knackered.

16:34

ROBREDO WINS SECOND SET 6-4!

Oh, Evans. The 27-year-old produces a loose game at the worst possible time, with unforced errors – and not outstanding winners – helping Robredo over the line.

16:25 

EVANS 7-5 4-5 ROBREDO.

Evans holds; Robredo responds.

The Brit is performing supremely, given his early woes (see below!)

16:19 

EVANS 7-5 4-3 ROBREDO.

Still on serve in the second set, but Robredo is now on top.

16:11

BREAK BACK! EVANS 7-5 2-2 ROBREDO.

Evans is just starting to feel the heat on Court 2. He’s broken to love.

16:06

BREAK AND HOLD! EVANS 7-5 2-0 ROBREDO.

Evans is not messing about. He looks oh-so comfortable on the red dust.

15:56

DAN EVANS WINS FIRST SET 7-5!

Wonderful from Evans, who earns two set points with a sexy drop shot… Can he take them? The first passes him by after a tame net exchange, but he takes the second by forcing Robredo to find the net. Maybe he’s found his calling on the clay…

15:45 

EVANS 5-5 ROBREDO.

Forget my earlier sass, Dan Evans is an absolute machine on clay. Check out this whopper!

15:39 

EVANS 4-4 ROBREDO.

Nothing beats a bit of passion. Evans glares victoriously at his team after landing a fierce smash volley, then proceeds to earn an impressive hold. He’s holding his own against his more-fancied opponent.

15:24

BREAK BACK! EVANS 2-2 ROBREDO.

It’s bad news for fans of Great Britain. Evans has surrendered his advantage to the 2009 quarter-finalist. Given Robredo is Spanish, he’ll almost certainly win this.

15:11

BREAK! EVANS 1-0 ROBREDO.

GB’s Dan Evans, one of the worst clay-court players in the men’s draw, is already a break up against Tommy Robredo.
