Evan Hoyt to take time out
• 1 MINUTE READ
Evan Hoyt has announced he is taking a break from tennis competition to overcome injuries that have interrupted his career.
He is currently in rehab following recent knee surgery and, while he has no immediate plans to return to the professional tour once back to full fitness, he could one day return to the circuit, particularly the doubles tour. In the meantime, he will pursue other goals.
Evan has enjoyed great success as a player and has won six Men’s ITF singles titles, and 18 doubles crowns. He also claimed the ATP Challenger Men’s doubles title in 2018 - although arguably the highlight of his career so far was reaching the quarter-finals of the mixed doubles at Wimbledon in 2019.
Chris Lewis, Head of Performance at Tennis Wales, said: ‘Evan has been our leading Welsh player for many years now and has always set a great example to aspiring players on and off the court. He achieved a great deal of international success as a junior player and despite several set-backs due to injury, he persevered and showed amazing resilience to win multiple professional titles in singles and doubles. The run at Wimbledon in 2019 showed what he was capable of on the doubles court at the very top of the game, and resulted in him flying the flag for Welsh tennis at the biggest tournament in the world.’
