Dan Evans v Kwon Soonwoo Head to Head
Evans and Kwon have never been involved in a career head-to-head meeting before. However, the Briton finished the last 16 of the US Open and the South Korean has reached the final of the ongoing Astana Open, thereby suggesting that both are on decent run of form going into their first-ever meeting in San Diego.
Evans Hoping to Continue from Where He Left at US Open
Coming into the year’s last Grand Slam on the back of a last-16 finish at Winston-Salem, Evans opened his US Open campaign against unheralded Thiago Monteiro of Brazil.
After laboring to a four-set win over the Brazilian, the current British No.1 set up a second-round outing against Marcus Giron of the US. That match, too, panned out similarly as the American took the Englishman to four sets.
However, Evans prevailed in a stiff battle to set up a third-round date with rising Australian star Alexei Popyrin. The Popyrin clash went the full distance as the 23rd-ranked Englishman fought back from two sets down to scrape home in five.
Up against Russian Daniil Medvedev, the eventual champion, in his next, Englishman caved in without much of a fight to go down in straight sets.
In his first tournament since the US Open, the British No.1 will open his San Diego campaign against emerging South Korean player Kwon Soonwoo.
Kown reached the final of the ongoing Astana Open hard-court event on Saturday and notwithstanding whichever way the final shakes out, he will go into the Evans cash in San Diego high on confidence and belief.
Kwon Makes Astana Final
Using the disappointment of a first-round exit at the US Open as a stepping stone for success at the ongoing Astana Open, Kwon, on Saturday, reached the final of the tournament beating local hope Alexander Bublik in three sets.
Currently ranked 82nd in singles, the South Korean had reached the last four on the back of a string of impressive victories, including those over more accomplished rivals Laslo Djere and fellow Serbian Dusan Lajovic.
The semifinal on Saturday seemed to be headed Bublik’s way after he wrapped up the opening set without much of a fuss. However, not to be outdone, the South Korean staged a valiant fightback and won the next two sets to seal his passage to the final.
Irrespective of which way the final goes, Kwon take the confidence and momentum from a strong Astana campaign into his opening clash in San Diego against British No.1 Dan Evans.
Having scalped two Top-50 players in Asatana, the South Korean will fancy Evans’s number going into this first-round clash.
Evans v Kwon Prediction and Tip
While ranking and experience would put Evans slightly ahead in the contest, Kwon, on current form, is quite capable of producing an upset in his San Diego opener.
