Re: Europe/Africa Group 1: Daniel Evans (GB) def. Lukas Lacko (SVK) 6-3, 7-5, 7-5
It was a reasonable assumption that he would lose - #276 v #65. And a #65 in good enough form to reach an ATP final last week (which might have been why his game was a bit off - tired maybe).
The real surprise was Dan's improved attitude - he has plenty of talent but in the past has not shown great fighting qualities. Yesterday he did, and well done to him.
