Dan Evans


Nice to see Dan Evans being the voice of reason and responsibility......

In light of the hoo-hah about Medvedev testing positive and possibly kicking out Nadal coz they practiced together, and the ATP's stupidity in allowing people who live in Monaco not to go into strict bubbles like the others, Dan says:

'it's deifnitely in my mind, I'm very eager to get vaccinated, if I can. It would be heart-breaking to test positive for Wimbledon.
It's very important to stick to the protocols; if someone is being blasť, they ruin it for everyone else..........so seeing the scenes in England, I won't be socialising any time soon'.

From the Shropshire Star (and probably elsewhere too !)

By the way, I note that the ATP site now says that Dan is officially resident in Dubai.

Is that new? Or did I just not notice it before?

Presumably for tax reasons, stating the obvious ..........

†I presume that he can live in tax exile while earning big bucks and its such a short window and hes constantly on the move anyway then return to the U.K. when his annual earnings become a little more mundane?†

Interview with Dan in today's Metro in which he says that winning Queen's would be as good for him as reaching the final stages of a Grand Slam tournament.

†Thats been obvious for a while, I don't come from a fitness background and I can see it, particularly with the women so their hormonal cycles need looking at carefully.

Such a great player, in my opinion technically always been the best British man to watch, probably reflected in his comments about it being a running game, dedicating himself to optimising his stamina has always been Dans problem not playing tennis, Marcus really the only other Brit to under achieve because of that in the last decade, the rest who havent broken into the top 50 I genuinely dont think were good enough players. Lets enjoy him while it lasts.

Report by Simon Briggs today on why Dan moved to Dubai. He decided on the move after practising in Dubai during our lockdowns in 2020. Dan said it made a bit more sense if I could travel in and out of there rather than being stuck in Britain if there was to be another lockdown. He decided to reside there for the future just as somewhere to practise outdoors a lot more than being at home and practising indoors at the NTC. Why did Kyle choose Bahamas† to† reside which seems more† off the beaten track than Dubai ?.

†I must read that - thanks Gameover.†

Dubai of course has many other players based out of there, plus is a good location to travel from ( a major airport hub and good for Europe and Asia-Pac). Makes so much sense, compared to Bahamas which makes very little sense.††

†So much closer to the US, where many of them spend a lot of winter.

Very good facilities.†

Zero tax.†

Lots of other players there so good training.†

A lot of that might be the same with Dubai - but Bahamas is more established and far better for the US.††
