After Australian Open, Evans participated in just one tournament. In Rotterdam, the representative of the UK managed to get to the quarter finals.
In the course of the competition, Evans passed first Philipp Kohlschreiber (6-3, 7-5), and then Karen Khachanov (4-6, 6-4, 6-4). In the quarterfinals, Daniel lost to the future competition triumph Gael Monfils (6-7, 2-6).
Daniel Evans has already reached the top 30. Once removed from participating in the APR tour for doping, the Briton returned and shows that he is serious.
Fognini also spoke at competitions in Rotterdam, but unlike Evans, he covered the racket in the opening match – in two sets, the Italian lost to Karen Khachanov (3-6, 3-6).
Before his trip to Rotterdam, Fabio performed pretty well in Melbourne at the Australian Open, where he managed to get to the 1/8 finals of the competition. For reaching the quarterfinals, Fognini in four games lost to Tennys Sandgren (6-7, 5-7, 7-6, 4-6).
Fabio Fognini will not make any special problems to deal with Evans, it will be much more difficult for the Italian to deal with himself. Surprisingly, for the first time in his career, Fabio decided to call on this prestigious tournament. Previously, he preferred to apply for the tournament in Acapulco, or even skip this gaming week to prepare for the March Masters.
