Dan Evans defeated Maxime Cressy in straight sets as the Briton moves into the Sydney Tennis Classic semi-Final v Aslan Karatsev from Russia

What a cracking Quarter-Final match up last night from Britain’s Dan Evans and American Maxime Cressy, they were always on the same page when fighting for every point and game but it’s Evans who raced to the finish line twice in straight sets (6-4, 7-6 via 7-5 tiebreaker).

Unlucky from Cressy where he didn’t fire off bad, he put in so much effort having fought back at times in order to try & keep himself in the running. However, he just couldn’t find the finish line unlike Evans in the end but he had a great run until this point as we wish him well next week in the Australian Open.

And Evans was brilliant to pull off this game that keep his hopes of winning the Men’s Sydney Tennis Classic alive, he built a great opening set lead before he did his best to keep the momentum up that went into the tiebreaker & smashed his way to the semi-finals.

His next opponent is Russia’s Aslan Karatsev as the winner will meet either Andy Murray or Reilly Opelka in the final tomorrow.
