New York | Evans battles through while Norrie falls

Dan Evans led the men’s challenge at this year’s US Open but was unfortunately immediately followed on court by Cameron Norrie who was unable to emulate his win.

Good to win but that was it, really. I’m not sure it was one for the spectators, but it was good to get through Dan Evans

Evans, who broke off with his coach David Felgate shortly after Wimbledon, his having one of his best seasons and has certainly recovered well from the 12-month ban following his cocaine misdemeanour.

On this occasion he secured, after a three hours and two minutes hard-fought battle, a 6-4 6-4 2-6 6-3 win but wasn’t happy with his overall performance.

“I was struggling, he made me feel terrible, no rhythm, it was difficult,” the British No.2 said. “It was tough. Good to win but that was it, really. I’m not sure it was one for the spectators, but it was good to get through.”

Following him onto Court 17, Cameron Norrie also found himself embroiled in a hard fought battle but was unable to get the better of another Frenchman, Gregoire Barrerer eventually succumbing 7-6(4) 6-4 4-6 6-7(5) 7-6(2).
