Dan Evans is up against veteran Olivier Rochus on day one of Great Britain's Davis Cup tie against Belgium.
Evans was Britain's hero in February as he beat Lukas Lacko and Martin Klizan despite a rankings gap of several hundred places to help his country to a dramatic 3-2 win and the world number 344 will be hoping to pull off similar heroics this weekend.
"It's good to be back and playing on the court," he said. "I'm looking forward to the tie getting started tomorrow. I'm happy with the draw and happy to play second; I think Josh will do a good job first up."
Evans is his country's best hope of getting points in the singles and everyone knows that on his day he's far better than his current ranking. He pushed world number 17 Florian Mayer mightily close at Wimbledon last year and enjoyed a decent win recently over former Australian Open finalist Arnaud Clement.
However the problem he may have in this clash is that Rochus plays a very similar game but just does it better. Neither player is particularly tall with Rochus standing at just 5'6 but both have great hands, are superb movers and have no shortage of variety in their games. Evans' backhand slice causes problems for many an opponent especially the taller guys but expect the speedy Rochus to handle it with ease..
Prediction: Rochus in straight sets.
