Grigor Dimitrov v Dan Evans Head to Head
The pair have played each other twice before, with their current head to head record showing one win apiece. Dimitrov won on the grass at Eastbourne in 2011, but Evans avenged that defeat at the Washington Open three years ago.
Dimitrov Re-Discovering Lost Form?
After winning the 2017 ATP finals in London and becoming a top three player, Dimitrov seemed to have the world at his feet, ready to challenge for Grand Slams and other Masters events to set alongside the crown he won in Cincinnati earlier that year.
Since then, so poor has been his form that he endured a precipitous slide down the rankings, beginning the US Open this year down at 68, and given little chance in the tournament. It, therefore, came as a welcome surprise to the 28-year old Bulgarian that he went on to reach his third Grand Slam semi-final, knocking out Roger Federer in the process.
He was eventually beaten by Daniil Medvedev but, given that huge boost of confidence, he will be looking to build on that performance over what remains of the season, as he looks to prove he is ready to compete for the biggest events again.
Evans, Survived First Round Battle
Evans had to survive an almighty battle to take his place in the second round here, after taking two and a half hours, and requiring a third set tie-break, to see off the challenge of the world 222, Bai Yan, of China.
The world number 48 reached his second ever senior ATP singles title at Delay Beach in February, losing in straight sets to Radu Albot of Moldova. Apart from that, his biggest successes this year have come on the Challenger circuit.
He won the Wimbledon pre-tournament events in Surbiton and Nottingham, was a beaten finalist in Quimper, and lost in the semi-finals of the Indian Wells Challenger event to Andrey Rublev of Russia.
Dimitrov v Evans Predictions & Tips
Dimitrov is the odds-on favourite to win this match at 11/18, whilst Evans is 6/4. Dimitrov will be keen to prove that the US Open was not just a flash in the pan and that he is really getting back to his post. Evans is a tough competitor, and may push him close, but Dimitrov should win.
