Dan Evans’ remarkable run of form has been one of the highlights of this year’s Monte Carlo Masters – and although his luck ran out in the singles semi-final yesterday he did manage to progress to the final of the doubles event.
Evans and his partner Neal Skupski saw off number one seeds Juan Cabal and Robert Farah in a very tight match, and will now take on Croatian pair Mate Pavic and Nikola Mektic in today’s final.
In the singles, Stefanos Tsitsipas proved too much for Evans, with the Greek easing to a 6-2, 6-1 win, and he will now face Andrey Rublev in what is sure to be a closely fought final.
Russian Rublev was also a victor in straight sets yesterday, beating Norwegian youngster Casper Ruud 6-3, 7-5, so both players should be fairly fresh coming into the match.
And it’s almost impossible to pick a winner from the two players – in six previous matches between them, both Rublev and Tsitsipas have won three apiece.
