Dan Evans


Mike Cation has a 30 minute interview with Evo

mikecation.podbean.com/e/the-coffee-cast-with-cation-dan-evans-edition/

Can't comment yet as still listening to it while typing, but if Mike's other podcasts are anything to go by, it will be worth a listen.

Some gems in there. Apparently he is getting help from the JTC team and David Felgate will be flying out to join him soon. Evo will be off to Istanbul after his USA trip.

Thanks Bob. I finally got round to listening to the coffee cast chat. A good listen.

Interesting how Dan feels the Binghamton weather and lack of even a gym got him off on a bad foot on his North American trip when he needed practice and he's been kind of playing catch up. Hopefully he can end the trip on a good note in Vancouver.

The playing aim for now of Australian Open qualifying seems a fair one.

That's a good interview. Mail or not, I like dickson and Dan comes across well. Looks like he won't bother with Canberra then, be interesting to see if that training block in florida is as part of the Andy Murray group that goes each year?

Great interview agreed, interesting to see some of the comments posted below, who are you? You'll never make it! Your 28 it's too late etc... Having watched the last 5-6 years of his career closely you realise how wrong they are, ie if he stays fit and focused he is top 30 talent and may have another 4-5 years in the game, last chance saloon but the door is definitely wide open and at last his eyes are wide open.

 Perhaps not the best turn of phrase for someone returning from a narcotics ban! However your sentiment is absolutely true, seems very focussed and hungry. Looking forward to following his 2019.

 Also, 28 hasn't been too late for Stan, Anderson, Isner or the Big 3. As long as he is fit and focussed, why wouldn't he get back to top 50?

I don't think you would want to ever consider having a debate with anyone on the Daily Mail forum, given its content and diversity of views which generally on the lines of should we amputate limbs for petty theft or just hang um........ although Dan is given the opportunity to repent to the readership, the comments suggest he is speaking to the hand because the face ain't listening.

Hopeful they will listen to his comments on the availability of domestic futures and soon to be transition tour events to allow equity of access to professional tennis from all backgrounds. The cost of coaching what is a singular sport between the age of 8 and 14 I think is the real issue. As Dan points out we are investing enormously in Sports science when we don't have enough players who can hit it in. Given Dan who can hit it in consistency was able to easily break the worlds top 200 on a diet of pork scratching s and Stella? He may well have a point.

It would be interesting to know if money were no object and it isn't for some, how many individual lessons would a junior have between the age of 8-10, 10-12, 12-14. I suppose it's what they will sell you if you turn up at Nick Bollerteri's academy. Taylor Fritz (whose father is an elite coach) had different coaches to come in and work on each different stroke, admittedly his upbringing is well documented and far from straight forward.
