(Reuters) – Britain’s Dan Evans captured his first ATP Tour title with a landslide 6-2, 6-3 victory over Felix Auger-Aliassime in the final of the Murray River Open on Sunday. Eighth-seeded Evans broke serve five times in the Australian Open warm-up event and needed just 77 minutes to defeat Auger-Aliassime, who has now lost all seven finals he has played in. The 30-year-old Evans took advantage of an error-filled display of the Canadian third-seeded breaking twice in the first set and taking control. It did not yield in the second, the only problem was when it broke while serving for the match at 5-2. However, Evans produced an instant response to counter and seal the victory. The victory will give Evans a confidence boost heading into the first Grand Slam of the year, where he has not advanced beyond the second round since 2017. He will face compatriot Cameron Norrie in the first round on Tuesday.
