Dan Evans shrugged after being booed at the end of his French Open second round defeat, saying, “I don’t care.”
British No. 2 Evans, who felt the effects of a chest infection, pitted against 23-year-old Swede Mikael Ymer for almost three and a half hours, but lost in four sets, 6-3 3-6 6-2 6-2.
When Ymer brought up match point, Evans, who had clearly had enough, just hit his return service.
The half-hearted shot was received with cheers from the crowd on a packed Court Six, but Evans had no remorse.
“I gave away the last point, but I don’t care to be honest,” said the 29th seed. “I think I would have put in enough effort for three and a half hours. I was physically exhausted. That was it for me. That’s it.
“It was a difficult game. It’s frustrating and disturbing, don’t get me wrong, but that’s the way it goes.”
