Roger Federer beats Dan Evans in comeback match after 14 months

Roger Federer marked his eagerly-awaited return to action after more than a year out by beating  Dan Evans 7-6(8) 3-6 7-5 at the  Qatar Open on Wednesday.

The 39-year-old Swiss had not played a competitive match for 405 days and underwent two knee surgeries in 2020, but produced some stunning tennis to beat the British number one.

A socially-distanced evening crowd at the Khalifa Tennis Complex were treated to a high-quality duel with British number one Evans pushing the 20-time Grand Slam champion to the limit.
Federer showed great physical condition and kept his nose in front in the deciding set before pouncing in the 12th game to rifle a backhand winner down the line on his second match point.
