Have been waiting for Wardy's match to start  for a while now - but it seems Odesnik has withdrawn so Ward through to a QF against Rik de Voest (in his farewell tournament) or Kokkinakis

Dan Evans about to start on the Cambie Surgery Court

Evans lost 4&5.

Since reaching his first ATP semi final in Zagreb back in February, he's had a pretty torrid year (not aided by an alleged knee injury).

Was defending finalist points here and is doing so again next week. After his US Open R3 points come off he's going to tumble back down to the 300s.

^ Watched Dan's match last night - it was quite a battle. Some 1st serves would have helped I think!

Wardy leading 6-3 4-2 v Kokkinakis - playing well. Commentator seems impressed...

..and it's a comfortable 6-3 6-4 win for James, served well, faced no break points. Plays Farrukh Dustov (WR 144) in SF

That's a seriously impressive win for James. Didn't see the match but it sounds like he was pretty much at his best.

He's such a frustrating player. When everything clicks he can comfortably compete with top 50 players, but he has far too many 'off' days where he struggles to even keep the ball in court.

Dan appears to be on his way home ?

Dan lack commitments, there's a real sense of entitlement yet he's not willing to put in the hard yards.


Conversely, James lack the true confidence in his ability but is willing to put in the hard yards. He deserves the success he's currently having on the challenger circuit.

It was very enjoyable - Wardy pretty much in charge but Kokkinakis not playing badly.

I'd often wondered who coaches James, and only recently discovered that he's had a new coach since end of last year - Australian Darren Tandy. Wardy was interviewed last week in Lexington - said Tandy wasn't with him there but would be in Vancouver this week, and it was good to have someone to talk things through with.

We had a new softly spoken commentator (Mike C is on leave), who was singing his praises - though hadn't seen him before -hope that continues this evening!
Plays Dustov at 10pm UK time. Winner plays Baggy or Bemelmans.
