Brits R Balls: Bally Wins, Evans Is The New Murray

Posted by gauloises1 on April 27, 2009

Obligatory British tennis update …

Elena Baltacha picked up her first singles title of 2009 at the $25,000 event in Changwon, Korea, beating Japan’s Junri Namigata 6-3, 6-1 in the final. Good show, Bally.

And Acegroup, the company that Murray left for 19, has quickly signed the next big thing – or is it the next best thing? – Dan Evans.

Evans is the 18 year-old who was reprimanded by the LTA last year for attending a party the night after he lost in the boys’ doubles at Wimbledon. However, he’s since won two grass-court future events and a Challenger in Jersey, and is now no. 5 in the domestic rankings – and the highest-ranked 18 year old on the ATP tour. Acegroup must reckon he has some potential – or are they just desperate to replace Murray?
