On Saturday, semifinal battles will kick-off at the Battle of the Brits in singles as we’ll also see doubles final in London.
4 most successful men from the group stage will meet in the semifinals at the Battle of the Brits on Saturday. After the semifinal battles, the National Tennis Centre in London will also witness doubles final as we already know the full schedule of play.
World no. 28, Dan Evans and former no. 1, Andy Murray will kick-off semifinal day in London. While the first mentioned was almost flawless in the group stage, winning all 3 matches. Murray lost to Kyle Edmund but still got his semifinal spot. It will be the first meeting for the two as they didn’t meet on the ATP Tour.
Although the second match will feature two players that have fewer titles than the first two mentioned, it won’t lack any quality. Kyle Edmund was undefeated in his group and definitely wants to make the final at the Battle of the Brits. Cameron Norrie, who lost only to Dan Evans will attempt to ruin his plans and get the final spot. It will be the second match for them in Great Britain as they met in Eastbourne last year with Edmund winning comfortably 6-2, 6-2.
Dan Evans will appear on the court one more time on Saturday. Teaming up with Lloyd Glasspool, he will be facing Jamie Murray & Neil Skupski in the final of doubles. The two teams met in the group stage of the Battle of the Brits, with former no. 1 and Neil Skupski delivering a 3-set victory to book the semifinal spot.
