'I had to charge my phone three times'

Reanne Evans jokes that she "had to charge my phone three times" due to the media interest in her potentially becoming the first woman to play at the World Snooker Championship.

The 10-times ladies' champion has accepted an invitation to take on the men in qualifying and is now three wins away from playing in the tournament's main televised stages.

Evans has once previously featured in the world qualifiers, losing 10-6 to Sam Baird in her opening match four years ago.
