Dan Evans v Alexei Popyrin Head to Head
The two players have never met before on the ATP circuit.
Evans Seeking his Maiden Grass Title
Daniel Evans, currently ranked World No. 27 and British No. 1, arrived in London for the Queen’s Club Championships after a decent stint in the Nottingham Challenger. Over there, he reached the quarterfinal where he fell to Denis Kudla. Nonetheless, having played on the grass courts in that event, it must have certainly helped Evans to build some form and momentum ahead of the grass swing.
In the preceding few clay tournaments, the 31-year-old did not have that great of a run. In the French Open and Italian Open, he fell right in the opener.
However, in the Madrid Masters, he did reach the third round while in the Monte Carlo Masters, he made it all the way to the semis after dispatching the World No. 1 Novak Djokovic, Polish No. 1 Hubert Hurkacz, and Belgian No. 1 David Goffin.
Earlier this year, Evans won his first ATP singles title by beating Felix Auger-Aliassime in the Murray River Open in Melbourne.
Needless to say, Evans has come a long way since his failed drug test and the subsequent ban back in 2017. Ever since his return to the tour, he has been working hard and has definitely done well to crack the top 30 and become the top-ranked player in Great Britain.
Popyrin Hoping to Rely on his Momentum
With a win-loss record of 15-10, the 21-year-old Popyrin is having himself a breakthrough season on the ATP Tour. Earlier this year, he won his first singles title in the Singapore Open, beating Marin Cilic and Alexander Bublik en route to the trophy.
Soon after that, World No. 63 reached the third round in the Miami Open and the second round in the Monte Carlo Masters. Later on, Popyrin also made it to the third round in the Madrid Masters as a qualifier, dispatching Jannik Sinner before falling to Rafael Nadal.
By his standards, the young Aussie is certainly having a terrific time on the tour although, his form has subsided a bit in the last couple of tournaments. In the Italian Open, French Open, and Stuttgart Open, Popyrin was beaten in the first round.
That said, he is soaring on confidence and raw energy – something that can make life a bit difficult for Evans.
Evans v Popyrin Prediction and Tip
Evans is likely to win this match but Popyrin will certainly put up a fight. This will be an entertaining affair, one that may extend into three sets.
