Dan Evans speaks on bad Nottingham weather

British tennis player Dan Evans fully understands the current situation at the Nottingham Challenger as, instead of having matches played on an outdoor-grass surface, matches are played on an indoor-hard surface due to a bad weather.

The organizers have had big problems with the weather so far this week as the men's event hasn't come to the stage where it was supposed come. Players will have to play multiple matches as the tournament has come to the round-of-16 stage.

“It’s obviously disappointing, but [the tournament organisers] are doing the best job they can in the circumstances and all the players are thankful for that. Everyone here in Nottingham has been great like they have been each year," Evans said of the Nottingham weather, per LTA Twitter.

Evans, seeded at No. 1 in the Nottingham main draw, had a first round bye before he claimed a straight-set win over promising fellow compatriot Jack Draper. The 2017 Sydney runner-up is set to fight against Swede Mikael Ymer for a place in the Nottingham quarterfinal. Evans is hoping to continue his good form as he won it all at the Surbiton Challenger last week.
