Karakal Profile, Emyr Evans
Welshman Emyr Evans made his debut on the PSA World tour in 2015, making the quarter finals of the Suez Helsinki Summer Challenger, before then making it into the last four of the Madison Open later that year.
A string of quarter final appearances followed over the next couple of years, along with semi-final results at the Annecy PSA Open, DPD/FOS Amsterdam Open, Open Squash Provence Chateau/Arnoux and Ocean Blue Logistics Grimsby & Cleethorpes Open before he made his first final. That came at the Prague Open, losing out to Mohammad Alsarraj in four games.
2018 saw two more finals, at the Austrian Open and the Grand Sport Armenian M5 Challenger III. He then reached the semis of both the Linear Logistics Bankers Hall Club Pro Am and the Life Time Atlanta Open to start 2019. He would go on to make the final of the former the year after, along with also finishing runner-up at the APM Kelowna Open as well.
After a truncated 2020 campaign due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Emyr made at least the quarter finals of eight straight events to end 2021, including finishing runner-up at the Springfield Scottish Squash Open. With that run of results, the Welshman moved inside the world’s top 100 for the first time in his career.
Younger brother of Welsh number one Tesni Evans, 2022 saw Emyr claim his first PSA World Tour title at the Sutton Coldfield International and represent Wales at the Birmingham Commonwealth games.
In November 2023 Emy claimed his second PSA crown at the Oregon Open, Portland.
