British pair Dan Evans and Kyle Edmund have been drawn to face against each other in the first round of the Monte Carlo Masters with the winner set to face Rafael Nadal in the next round.

Evans and Edmund have both become fixtures of Great Britain's Davis Cup team but they will face off against each other in Monte Carlo.

Nadal has a bye into the second round and he will face the victory of the clash between the two Brits.

The pair have only faced each other competitively on one other occasion, in the 2016 Challenger final in Dallas.

Edmund won that match 6-3, 6-2 and on clay he is already the favourite for some to repeat that victory.

Evans has seen his form drop off a bit after a stellar start to the year, defeating Bernard Tomic and Marin Cilic on his way to the last 16 of the Australian Open.
