Dan Evans v Vasek Pospisil Predictions & Preview
This is the second meeting between Daniel Evans and Vasek Pospisil. The Canadian Pospisil won their only meeting at the 2017 Davis Cup.
Daniel Evans was ranked outside the top 500 in the world and has done well to be ranked within the top 50 now.
He was a finalist at the Delray Beach Open earlier this year. Evans has had starts at other tournaments but will now want to capitalize and have some deeper runs.
Once ranked in the top 25 in the world, Pospisil’s career is on the comeback trail, having met with injuries in the interim.
He is ranked outside the top 200 but did well to defeat Karen Khachanov in the opening round at the US Open, as he continues to get his career back on track.
A battle of two well-matched players; expect Evans to prevail in two tight sets.
Tip: Evans to win: 10/11 with Unibet Cameron Norrie v Damir Dzumhur Predictions & Preview
Rising British star meets veteran Damir Dzumhur for the first time in the qualifiers in Beijing.
Norrie is still looking to launch his career, and while he has shown initial signs of promise, he has not yet got consistency or results to bolster his confidence, unlike some of his peers.
Dzumhur has seen better playing days and is desperately looking to revive his season and career.
A lot to play for either player, with the more experienced Dzumhur to prevail in three sets.
