On Friday, the singles tournament of the Battle of the Brits will find the last players that will make it to semifinals, while we’ll see the first semifinal matches of the doubles tournament.
After defeated James Ward and Andy Murray, Kyle Edmund already has a secured spot in the semifinals of the Battle of the Brits. In his last match of the group stage, he will kick-off the day against Liam Broady as we already know the full schedule of play.
The second match of the day will be very similar. In the other group, Dan Evans who already has 2 victories will take on Ryan Peniston who replaced Jack Draper in the tournament but didn’t manage to get a victory in the two matches he played.
There will be a lot to fight for in the last singles match of the day. Cameron Norrie will face Paul Jubb as both can still make it to the semifinals. While Norrie defeated Peniston and lost to Evans, Jubb hopped in as an alternate when he replaced Jay Clarke and defeated Ryan Peniston.
Evening session will see first semifinal matches in doubles. In the first, Dan Evans & Lloyd Glaspool will meet James Ward & Kyle Edmund. However, the second match will be much more interesting. Former world number 3, Joe Salisbury & Johny O’Mara will meet former no. 1, Jamie Murray & Neil Skupski.
