Brave performance by the player number 325, but the Russians have gone one to the good.

Great effort from Evo but Tursunov's class came through in the end

Tursunov played really well in patches. Evans should be proud.

Dima was generally bad, true, but Evans is no slouch either and should be ranked much higher than he is now.

the problem with the LTA products is when the spotlight's on them they'll perform really well and push good players close but when it comes to the slog of the futures/challengers they don't have the guts to grind it out in the obscure regions.

Tursunov isn't even a shadow of the player he was in 2005-07.

Tursunov must be in a shocking form.

One of the most frustrating matches of Tursunov I've ever watched and it's quite telling actually.
His footwork, ROS and ground game in general disappeared mid-first set and never came back. He was making so many shocking (even by his own standards) errors that at some point he just stopped going for his shots -- at all. Reverted to hapless pushing down the middle and occasional moonballing. Looked totally spent by the 3rd set. Barely could finish the rally with a winning shot when presented with a chance. 2nd serve was Errani-esque, Evans was hitting ROS winners off it time and again. A win is a win but Mitya's in a really bad shape.
Evans played much better than expected, not a terrible player by any means. Nice technique, aggressive instincts even though he certainly lacks firepower, soft hands at the net, very good first serve. But he's too volatile and quite a choker.

Don't we say this every time Evans plays DC? It is not enough to have some spirited performances; tennis players need to be consistent and Evans is failing on that front. The potential is there to at least be a solid Challenger player though.

yeah, I know...and I like watching Danny play too - nice slice, cracking backhands from time to time and good first serve too. But that maddening inconsistency in his game looks like insurmountable burden to overcome. Too bad

Dan Evans is a from a certain perspective, not a very nice young man. It's well known amongst the avid followers of British tennis.
