Will we see a great performance by the legend which is Roger Federer in his comeback here in Doha, or will Daniel Evans come in here and spoil the party?
Daniel Evans put on a very resilient performance in his first round encounter here in Doha, beating the very in form Jeremy Chardy in 3 sets 6-4/1-6/6-2. Evans looked very poor in that second set, but he was able to regain composure early in the third and he took control straight away. Evans is a great player and he will be definitely looking forward to this encounter against his idol and who he based his playing style around, Roger Federer. Can Daniel Evans now get enough momentum going to cause the upset here in the second round and spoil the party for the tennis world?
Roger Federer is back! It is great to see one of the best players of all time back on the tennis court after more than a year out of the game due to knee surgery. Federer last played competitive tennis at the 2020 Australian Open, and he will be looking to get himself back up to speed with the competition level nowadays as we all know that he still has some very big titles in him, even at the age of 39! Federer wants to play few tournaments this year, but focus on important ones to him, and I am sure that in order to increase the longevity of his career, this is a smart move. How will Federer play in his comeback?
This is going to be the 4th meeting between both players, with Roger Federer leading the head to head 3-0. Daniel Evans just doesn't seem to have the playbook on how to get anything going against Federer, and he has not won a set in their 9 sets played! Federer, although this is his first match, will be here ready to go and I am sure he will come out and dominate this encounter, giving great news to the tennis world.
