Dan Evans to hire 2nd coach for 2022 season in effort to enter top 20
Now 31, Evans will end the 2021 season ranked 26 in the world which is not far removed from his career-high ranking of 22 achieved earlier in the year. The Brit has been a steady riser over the past few seasons slowly but surely making his way towards the top 20 which has been a longtime goal of his. Towards the goal, he is set to hire another coach ahead of the 2022 season to help him finetune his play in order to break into the top 20 finally.
Cameron Norrie is another Brit who was able to break into the top 20 this season after strong consistent player over the course of the year with a fabulous finish that even saw him compete at the ATP Finals as well. A number of people are understood to have been approached, including Heather Watson’s former coach Rob Morgan, who has just split with Joe Salisbury, the British doubles player who won his third and fourth (men’s and mixed) grand slam titles at the US Open in September.
The 31-year-old will now see out his season in Austria as part of Team GB at the Davis Cup Finals this weekend, where they will take on France on Saturday and Czechia on Sunday in the group stages. He will be joined by Norrie, Salisbury, Neal Skupski, and Liam Broady, who could find themselves in a blockbuster clash with Djokovic’s Serbia in the quarter-finals, although ties in Innsbruck’s Olympiahalle will be played behind closed doors due to a national lockdown in Austria.
