Andy Murray vs Daniel Evans: Preview
Andy Murray, who to date remains the youngest champion at the tournament will return to the competition once again as he looks for his 3rd title at the competition. The former World No. 1 had an injury-plagued season but showed glimpses of vintage Andy in the second half and will look to get in the form before he begins his campaign for the 2022 season.
Daniel Evans last played for the Team Great Britain at the 2021 Davis Cup Finals where they lost in the quarter-final stage. Evans made a good start to the season winning his first-ever Tour title in Melbourne at the start of the season and had good performances till the 2021 Wimbledon after which his form dipped as he contacted Covid-19 and had a loss of momentum in the second half of the season.

Andy Murray vs Daniel Evans: Prediction
Evans will come into the tie with a career outdoor hardcourt record of 214-112 and is 12-11 on the surface this season while having a season record of 27-24 across all surfaces. Murray will take the court with a career outdoor hardcourt record of 237-69 and is 5-5 on the surface this season and has a 20-16 record for the season across all surfaces.
Looking at these numbers and their recent form in the past few weeks, it will be a tough battle for both players who have battled their respective challenges this season.
