The Brazilian has the edge when it comes to the serving stats but Evans is more comfortable when it comes to the return games. If the Brit can raise his numbers on serve then this could be a comfortable match for him.

Playing styles and prediction

Heading into Winston-Salem, Monteiro was in a losing streak of his own having lost six consecutive matches before back-to-back wins in North Carolina. The world number 93 plays a baseline game but creates deadly patterns of play on his service games.

This is a fairly comfortable opening match for Evans to start with as both players don’t have an awful lot of confidence. If Evans can raise his first serve percentage than this should be a comfortable straight sets win for him. However nothing has been straightforward for Evans lately and with this being best of five sets it could be anybody’s match to play for.

Prediction: Evans in four sets.
