As he prepares for his senior debut at Wimbledon, Evan Hoyt tells Owen Morgan how his doubles campaign can help fuel his ambition for continuing the climb up the world rankings. Still reeling from defeat in the biggest singles match of his senior career, Welsh tennis number one Evan Hoyt received the perfect phone call to raise his spirits.

Just hours after defeat at the Wimbledon singles qualifying tournament, Welsh Tennis number one Evan Hoyt was awarded a wildcard into the main draw of the men's doubles tournament.
