Andy Murray praises work ethic behind Dan Evans' rise before first showdown

Post by Floyd »

[list][*]British pair meet in semi-finals of Battle of the Brits on Saturday[*]Murray: ‘From where he’s come from he’s done extremely well’[/list]Andy Murray has always been the avuncular Scot watching from a distance with a kind eye as tearaway Dan Evans – only three years younger than him – searched for maturity in a sport that has as many distractions as it does prizes. It is fair to say, Murray has resisted temptation more easily than Evans.Yet, while Murray’s three slams, two Olympic gold medals and 46 career titles give the former world No 1 stature Evans would not bother dreaming about, he will be the underdog when they meet in the Battle of the Brits semi-finals in London on Saturday. Nobody would have ever predicted that before Saturday’s first-ever meeting between the two.
