British number two Dan Evans crashed out of the Queen's Club Aegon Championships with a comprehensive straight-sets defeat to South African Kevin Anderson.
Birmingham-born Evans tiptoed past Jurgen Melzer in a three-set first-round upset on Monday, but was unable to repeat the heroics against the tournament's seventh seed.
Rangy Anderson's big serve caused Evans problems throughout, with the world number 18 progressing to the third round 6-2 6-3.
Dan Evans is though to his first ever ATP Tour event semi-final, after he beat German 3rd seed, Philipp Kohlschreiber in three sets.
The Birmingham tennis player will face number one seed, Tommy Haas, or Andrey Kuznetsov in the next round of the Zagreb Indoors championship in Croatia.
Evans worked his way into the spotlight of British tennis last year, when he reached the third round of the US Open at Flushing Meadows.
