Evans Puts Taylor On the Fritz Again

History does repeat itself, as Taylor Fritz found out much to his chagrin. The #10 seed in this event, Fritz fell 6-7(5-7), 6-1, 5-7 to Evans in their round of 16 match. Evans was a +160 underdog when the match got underway.

One week earlier at the Citi Open, Evans reached the quarterfinals after also beating Fritz in the round of 16. The latter was forced to retire due to heat exhaustion. At the time of Fritz’s retirement from the match Evans was ahead 3-6, 7-6(8-6), 4-1. However, he was required to stave off match point in the second-set tiebreaker.

Despite the victory, the underlying numbers are showing that Evans clearly didn’t dominate the match. Although he held a 74-61% edge in getting his first serves to land in play, Evans only managed to win 68% of his first-service points, compared to 71% by Fritz. The American also held a 53-50% edge on second-serve points. Evans saved three of nine break points. Fritz could only save five of 17.

The win over world #12 Fritz came on the heels of a verdict by Evans against world #8 Andrey Rublev, the #5 seed in the tournament. Evans easily dispatched Rublev 6-4, 6-4.

Paul Sends Cilic Packing

At the start of Paul’s round of 16 match with Marin Cilic, the #13 seed Cilic was one of two players left in the draw who’d won an ATP Masters 1000 event. Now there’s just one, Hubert Hurkacz.

The +114 underdog entering the match, Paul overcame Cilic in straight sets 6-4, 6-2. Paul required just one hour and 12 minutes to defeat Cilic.

The American held a 76-57% edge in first service points won. He also held a 59-38% advantage in second service points won. Paul was 4/9 on break points saves, while Cilic was 1/5. In the previous round, Paul toppled Spanish sensation and world #4 Carlos Alcarez.

Evans vs Paul Prediction

It figures to be a battle of Paul’s powerful service game against Evans and his ability to make intricate touch shots.

Paul will be playing in his first ATP Masters 1000 quarterfinal match.
