Tesni Evans is the leading Welshwoman on the PSA World Tour with a number of Welsh National titles to her name.
The first came in 2012 when she beat Deon Saffrey in a titanic five-game-thriller and she retained her crown a year later with another triumph over the same opponent. Saffrey again fell by the wayside in January 2015's iteration of the event but Evans eclipsed those triumphs with her first Tour title in May of that year to power past four Egyptians and capture the Sharm El Sheikh International crown.
After reaching the world’s top 30 the following month, Evans continued to grow on the PSA World Tour, but had to wait until November 2016 for her breakthrough moment as she reached the semi-final of the Wadi Degla Open - her first PSA W50 last four finish - breaking into the world’s top 20 just two months later. The Welsh wonder made the quarter finals of the Cleveland Classic and the Ciudad de Floridablanca in the early part of 2017. She then made the last four in the HKFC International at the start of the 2017/18 season.
Several quarter final appearances followed, before a breakthrough semi final in the US Open in 2018, her first showing in the semis of a PSA World Tour Platinum event. With that success, and finishing runner-up in the Monte Carlo Classic at the end of the year, Evans moved into the top ten in the World Rankings for the first time in her short career.
The Welshwoman then also finished runner-up at the Cleveland Classic, losing out to Nour El Tayeb in the final. She followed that up with a quarter-final appearance at the PSA World Championships in Chicago. Evans then made the last eight of the DPD Open in Eindhoven before reaching her third final of the season, as she lost out to Joelle King in the final of the inaugural Manchester Open.
Unfortunately for the Welsh No.1, the 2019-2020 season was ended abruptly due to injury. Prior to suffering an ankle injury in her second round match at the J.P. Morgan Tournament of Champions in January, Evans had reached the quarter-finals of both the Oracle NetSuite Open and the FS Investments U.S. Open Squash Championships, but the issue suffered in New York saw her miss the rest of the shortened season.
