British No. 2 Dan Evans' run at Queen's was short-lived after No. 7 seed Kevin Anderson secured a comfortable victory earlier today.

Anderson beat Evans in straight sets this afternoon 6-2, 6-4 on the grass courts in the second round of the Aegon Championships.

Evans will be disappointed by the defeat and was hoping to fair better than last year - which saw him reach the third round.

Although the Brit was triumphant against Austria’s Jurgen Melzer in the first round yesterday, Anderson’s serve proved too powerful for him and he struggled to make an impact on the game throughout.

The South African broke Evans at the first opportunity, and he showed no signs of backing down as he wrapped up the match up in an impressive 65 minutes.

Meanwhile, Andy Murray’s newly-appointed coach Amelie Mauresmo was seen at the Queen’s club ahead of the Brits game against Paul-Henri Mathieu on Wednesday.

She was keeping a close eye on her compatriot - and Murray's next opponent - as Mathieu won 7-6, 6-4 against Aljaz Bedene on one of the outside courts at the club in west London.

If Murray beats the world number 90, he could be on course to face Bernard Tomic in the third round of the tournament.
