Dan Evans’ dream run at the Monte Carlo Masters came to an end as he was easily beaten by Stefanos Tsitsipas in the semi-finals.
The Brit had knocked out world number one Novak Djokovic and David Goffin en route to the last four, but could not spring another surprise as he went down 6-2 6-1 to the Greek fourth seed.
Prior to touching down in Monte Carlo, Evans had only won four matches on clay – a tally he matched with his memorable run.
