"I've got a good chance" says Dan Evans on facing Medvedev
Dan Evans is back to playing great tennis once again and the Brit who missed the Olympics due to COVID-19 is finding the confidence again as well. He will take that confidence into his match with Medvedev who has been on a tear in New York. Evans said:
“I’ve got as good a chance as anyone to do some damage. I think my game is in a good place. He’s a great, great player, unbelievable competitor, good mover. He’s been playing some unbelievable tennis this year."
Evans further said:
“But if I go on the court and think I’ve got no chance and there’s no pressure on me – I think in the pressure situations if they do arise, you’re not ready for that. You’ve got to go in believing you can win.”
Evans had high praise for Medvedev ahead of their clashing explaining what makes the Russian so good:
“I think his serve’s an amazing, amazing weapon. His serve and his movement, two of the best things. I think his serve is underrated. He rolls through his service games very quickly. He obviously puts a lot of balls in court on the opponent’s serve. Those three things are probably his best.
