Daniel Evans

I think he was invited once but told how hard he would have to work.     I'm sure there was some story that he turned down the invite.

Evans beats Taro Daniel, then Brydan Klein. Plays John-Patrick Smith of Australia in the semis. Wow, what a field that tourney has attracted... Stepanek, Sela, Berankis. Yet it's four unseeded guys in the semis. Big chance for Dan.

If he makes the final, he'll be back inside the top 300, and inside the top 250 if he can take the title.

Gulbis too, although he seems to be having a 'Donald Young comedown' year. Kyle would have been 6th seed but he withdrew/

Hell of a match with Klein - Dan ended up winning it 7-6(1), 6-7(7), 6-0.

It's fantastic to see Dan back at this level.  He has a very realistic chance of getting back into the top 200 (at least top 250) before the year is out. Would never have foreseen that a few months ago.

Set apiece. This guy has a huge forehand.

Smith eventually won but it sounds like Evans lost the plot after some disgraceful umpiring.

After about the 4th overrule went against him he questioned the call with the umpire, umpire refused to talk and then gave him a time violation. Utter madness.

God and we think Andy has his problems with the likes of Fergus Murphy!

As I have already stated in a previous forum, Murphy appears full of hatred and jealousy in particular towards the UK players. Frankly, he should be banned. His umpiring decisions are appalling.

but it wasn't him in this case I presume as he was in Cinci.

True, but my comments are still valid

There are rumours that Dan Evans is being considered for nomination for the Davis Cup squad. Sounds like Leon may be naming a 5/6 man squad to allow for late changes before the tie starts.
