With the Bulgarian ace getting extra time off to rest after Ugo Humbert’s withdrawal, he has the upper hand in this meeting. He has also won four of these six meetings and will fancy his chances.

Grigor Dimitrov vs Daniel Evans Preview

Our predictions for this match have now been established, let’s see how these players have fared so far in the Citi Open.

Grigor Dimitrov

The Bulgarian ace is no spring chicken and would have welcomed the extra time off after Humbert’s withdrawal from the quarter-final stage. Prior to that, McDonald did put up a fight in the second round but once the first set tiebreaker finished in his favour, it was one-way traffic. It seems that Dimitrov has finally put behind his injury struggles and reached the levels that many in the tennis world have gotten used to expect from him. He faced a familiar foe in Evans, one whom he has gotten the better of regularly but has not butt heads since October 2022.

Daniel Evans

After less than spectacular last three months, Evans finally got the ball rolling in Washington. The British number 2’s only struggles came in the second round against Barrere, who required three sets to get past him. Since then, there have been routine victories over Shevchenko and Tiafoe, tough battles as expected but finished in the allotted sets. He will fancy his chances to get to the finals of the Citi Open and its financial rewards but has one final duel to overcome.

Grigor Dimitrov vs Daniel Evans Head to Head

Across the careers, Dimitrov and Evans have played against each other six times with the Bulgarian ace leading 4-2. While they are three years removed from their last meeting, it was the British ace who triumphed in their last meeting in Vienna.
