Playing styles and prediction

Pouille comes into this match with a bit of a losing run himself having lost 10 of his last 15 matches. However the Frenchman possesses a big serve and some big ground-strokes to follow as he is capable of showing the type of form that saw him reach the top 15 in the world a few years ago.

Evans will need to take his chances and protect his first serve as much as possible to get the victory. Although the fast hard courts will suit Pouille’s ability to hold his own serve in effective fashion, Evans’ all-round game should have enough for the Frenchman but with both players having a lack of confidence anything can happen.

Prediction: Evans in three sets.
