Karen Khachanov (ATP 17) lost in three sets to the British Daniel Evans (ATP 35), with (6/3, 7/6, 6/4). Khachanov seemed fully recovered after yesterday’s exciting match against Zizou Bergs, but could not win today from the slightly stronger Brit.
With this victory Evans pushes on to the semi-finals of the European Open, where he takes on Frenchman Humbert. “It was indeed an incident-rich match, but I just played my game. I confirmed my good form,” said Evans after the match.
