[/list]There was a time in tennis – worryingly recent – when the term “best of British” might have been regarded as toweringly ironic. But when Dan Evans beat Kyle Edmund 6-3, 6-2 on Sunday to win a tournament that brought together the best-ranked men’s players in the country for the first time in 18 years, there was cause for applause.At least there would have been had the Battle of the Brits not been held in an echoing National Tennis Centre at Roehampton that was devoid of fans as a precaution against the spread of coronavirus.
