Evans had problems in the previous two games. Victories were hard for him to win. He defeated Fabio Fognini 3-6, 6-4, 7-5, while Pierre-Hugues Herbert beated him 7-5, 3-6, 7-6. Despite the victories, it’s hard to call the game of the British as a good one. He lost his serve nine times in two games, but made up for all that with a good game in draws.
In Dubai, Evans played only once. In 2017, he reached the second round here, where he lost to Gael Monfis.
Evans is unequivocally capable of competing at the highest level. Except the problem with the British is that he can’t perform a distance of tournaments. The British can hold several tournaments at a high level, but then out of nowhere there is a recession that can last for weeks. In addition, Daniel is more confident against serious opponents than outsiders, as he often underestimates his opponents and loses concentration. On the court, Evans acts in a variety of ways and tries to adapt to his opponents in order to play as uncomfortably as possible.
Rublev added in all game aspects, from serving to endurance and speed. But now the Russian needs to work on his psychology, as Andrey can lose his temper for any reason. When he experiences a nervous breakdown (breaks rackets and screams at everyone), then the Russian needs time to come to his senses and feel his game rhythm. This season Rublev is definitely surprising, because he has already won two ATP tournaments and made his debut in the Top 15. It should be noted that Andrey stands out for his versatility and ability to adapt to any conditions, so changing the surface will not be a problem for him.
In this tournament Rublev played two different fights. In a confrontation with the Italian Mussetti he did not act best on the second serve. Because of this, the Russian won only 38% of the goals. Despite this, he managed to break the resistance of Lorenzo (6-4, 6-4).
The match with Krajinovich was not easy for Andrey at first either. He won the first set at the tie-break. But in the second he found his game. As a result, Rublev did not give the Serb a single game (7-6, 6-0) in the second set. This time, the winning goals in the second serve were 52%.

Evans vs Rublev Predictions
The tournament didn’t start out well for Evans, because in the starting two games the British spent a lot of effort and suffered a wrist injury. Because of that, the British can’t invest his full energy in kicks and plays with discomfort. And this is a great opportunity for Rublev to take advantage of not the best form of the opponent and go further.
- Our prediction: Andrey Rublev Will Win.
