Evans impressive in victory over Rublev

The tournament so far in Dubai has been an entertaining one from Evans. In the opening round of the event, he had to fight back from dropping the first set to beat Fabio Fognini.

That put him through to a contest against Pierre-Hugues Herbert. 29-year-old Evans just squeezed through that after a tie-break in the deciding set. Evans had survived three match points in that game.

In his quarter-final against the in-form Next Gen star Andrey Rublev, the Englishman produced his best form of the competition so far winning 6-2, 7-6. Just to put that into context, Rublev started the season with an eleven match winning streak

Our betting prediction:
Under 20.5 Games

If he were to get through this tussle with Tsitsipas it would put Dan Evans through to his third ATP Final after 2017 Sydney and 2019 Delray Beach.

Evans, ranked 37th in the world, was aggressive and assured against Rublev. He will need more of that as he takes on Tsitsipas for the first time.


Greek star Tsitsipas can keep the momentum going

Stefanos Tsitsipas had to grind one out in the quarter-finals. He was up against Jan-Lennard Struff and was taken to three sets.

There was no point in the match where Tsitsipas really looked all that comfortable.

The final set was sitting at 4-4 and that’s the point where the Greek star really turned the screw.

After a slow start to the 2020 season, Tsitsipas has started to go up through the gears. He retained his Open 13 Provence crown title last weekend and so the 21-year-old is not going to be easy for Evans to knock over.

Tsitsipas to win is the pick, as it’s just hard to see Evans taking back to back wins against top players who are in-form.
