I know I'm paranoid. But am I paranoid enough?

He is such a talented player that I honestly have no idea just how he could climb if he keeps the right mentality and puts in the graft.

Height/slightly weak serve could restrict him to 50-ish, I think.

This match is tedious. Dustov is just your typical big-serving ball basher and is serving at 80%. Evans is at 73% himself and clearly the better player but just struggling with Dustov's serve. *3-4 on serve.

Cracking feed, Luke. Evans rattled by that over-rule. Blew 6 SPs. Could decide the set, possibly the match.

Pathetic umpiring, absolutely pathetic. How the **** can you just change your mind because a player is upset at a call?!

As you say, Evans rattled and having faced no problems on serve all match he gets broken serving for the set after SIX set points and FOUR double faults. Bah.

Evans serve has gone to **** since blowing those 3SPs. Gone from 73% to 50% and 0 DFs to 5 in two games.

Manages to squeak a tie-break. All the momentum he had is gone now - but he's also stopped Dustov's recent momentum after breaking back.

It was a shocking volley though. I thought it was out.

Tiebreak. C'mon, Dan.

Converts on his 7th SP! Such a talent. Regrouped well, too.

It looked like it clipped the line to me. But my view was no better than the barmy woman screaming in the stands. Either way umpire had the best view of it and made the call. You can't just go back on that because a player complains - of course he's going to bloody complain. Farcical stuff.

The swear filter makes me sound angrier than I am. More miffed than anything else.

I want to say great tie-break, but my computer spazzed out before it began and Evans was just walking to his chair by the time I had restarted it. Great to see he managed to take it in the end.

Now having treatment on his, er, bicep.

Took it 7-2 playing dominating tennis, hitting deep to the BH and coming in. It was decisive stuff.

Broken immediately in the third. Was 40-0 and 40-15 up in the two games he's been broken in so far. Serve absolutely AWOL.

Dustov clipping the line three times in succession.

He's very vocal. Not dissimilar to Murray at that age. I quite like the passion but equally sometimes it doesn't help matters.
