Evans has talent, but his major limitations are his mental state, his size, and his serve - unfortunately, it is hard to see him go much higher in world tennis.

He has openly admitted a lack of confidence in his game - at the time, when he was at the peak of his playing abilities last year. He is quite a small guy, and lacks the power in his game to make a real impression. His serve is a weakness - can generate some reasonable pace, but loses consistency when he goes for it. Doesn't have conviction when it matters, and you can't get away with that in challengers and ATP.

Awful match Berankis Lots of unforced errors . Can't defeat top 80 players so far. I was hoping that Muller is Berankis level player, but I was wrong.

Easy win for Muller , great serving (18 aces), expected in such a fast court.
Berankis is going nowhere, still the same problems, too much easy mistakes and getting tight in the most important moments. Had chances, but couldn't capitalise. When other youngsters like Tomic, Dimitrov, Harrison and Raonic play a Masters event, Rycka is struggling in CH. Really sad, as he should be up there with the rest of them.

Yeah, can't see Evans being anything more than a top 150-200 player to be honest. Hopefully this new crop of Brit youngsters will push on.

Lacko - Benneteau 5-7, 0-1...

There was some superclass tennis in 1st set. Lacko was pressing hard, fighting, serving well. But it wasn´t enough, because Benneteau was doing everything right, defending great, serving great, making absolutely no errors. This is too much for Lukas now to handle. What a shame, he has a good form, but it´s another tough matchup for him. Top 30 tennis from Benneteau, top 60 tennis from Lacko. Probably the best set I have seen on challenger´s tour this whole year.

Score is fixed

Berankis won't be the same player until 2012, when he can catch up to everyone else when everyone is off for the post-season break. His sharpness is gone but the foundation is still there for he to climb back to a high level pretty quickly. Just will take longer than expected.

I wouldn't say the Lacko-Benneteau first set was the best of the year but it's decent. Benneteau really is just a different level player and has shown that the past 20 minutes.

What a turnover! Lacko won 2nd set 6-3 after being 0-2 and 0-40 down. He made some highlight-reel points while Benneteau doesn´t seem OK now. Frustrated, tired and possibly injured. He played a lot of tennis last days. Lacko needs this match as hell and he is fighting for it, is focused, so let´s do it now! Will be not easy, though...

Lacko served for the match but lost serve and now Benneteau is one game away from the match. Tentative tennis from Lacko when it mattered cost him.

Benneteau is tired but may be able to squeak by here.

Awful misses thus far from Lacko in the tiebreaker.
