Dan Evans through to semi-finals of Dubai Duty Free Tennis Championships

Alexander Bublik gets candid, says he hates tennis

The Briton, through to just his fourth ATP Tour semi-final - and his first an ATP 500-level, handed sixth seed Rublev just his third loss of the season with a 6-2, 7-6 (9) victory over two hours and 11 minutes. Evans was broken while serving for victory leading a set and 5-4, with Rublev taking it into a tiebreaker. "I think I focused on my breathing, constructing the points, staying in the point, trying to make things happen from my backhand side". He does unforeseen points on the court", statedTsitsipas "I just need to be there, do my job the way I'm doing it so far. After the first set we saw that he was really exhausted.

The second set was equally intense. "But I was happy to win today and to fight until the end".

Djokovic will play Gael Monfils next after the third-seed defeated fellow Frenchman Richard Gasquet 6-3 6-3. That's because I sleep late every day.

"I'm playing pretty relaxed".

"It's hard for me with the jetlag". I feel my body flexible. The 29-year-old, who lost to Rublev at the Adelaide International in January, recovered from 1-3 down in the second set and first served for the match at 5-4. Tsitsipas boosts to 8-4 this period as well as has actually now won 10 successive collections.

In a new interview that sent ripples through the ranks of the tennis Twitterati, Alexander Bublik was quoted as saying candidly that he doesn't even like tennis, in fact actively hates it, and plays the sport merely for the money.
