Dan Evans hits back to secure a spot in the Montreal semifinals

Dan Evans has reached his second ATP Masters semifinal after bouncing back at the National Bank Open.

American Tommy Paul made a terrific start to win the first set, but the British number two took charge in the second to claim a 1-6, 6-3, 6-4 victory.

“You’re wondering if it’s going to happen, if you’re going to get in the match, and I got in,” Evans said.

“As I progressed I really took it to Tommy and that’s been my path all week so far and I’ve approached it in a good way, I was excited and I thought it was a good fight between me and Tommy.”

Pablo Carreno Busta, 31, was the only Montreal player to avoid dropping a set as he knocked out Jack Draper to end the possibility of an all-British semifinal and secure his spot against Evans.

The 20-year-old fought hard but the Spaniard dominated throughout, winning 7-6(4) 6-1 while his younger opponent exited the week that saw him reach his maiden Masters quarterfinals, beating world number five Stefanos Tsitsipas.

The other semifinal features Hubert Hurkacz and Casper Ruud after the former defeated Nick Kyrgios and the latter sent home hero Felix Auger-Aliassime.
