Dan Evans vs Pablo Carreno Busta: How to watch Montreal semis as Evans looks to sneak into ATP top 20

Dan Evans in action

Dan Evans is bidding to reach his maiden ATP Masters 1000 final and he will take on Pablo Carreno Busta in the last four of the Canadian Open on Saturday.

The 32-year-old Evans overcame a poor opening set in Montreal on Friday to beat American Tommy Paul in the quarter-final, winning 1-6, 6-3, 6-4 to reach only his second Masters 1000 semi-final after last year’s run in Monte-Carlo.

The British No 1 surged up 16 places in the ATP Rankings on the back of that result of Paul and he could add another 250 points to his live tally of 1,520, which would see him move into the top 20 for the first time.

“Carreno is a great player, experienced pro,” Evans said ahead of the match. “[He is] underestimated a lot. He’s a very tough opponent.”

Spaniard Carreno Busta reached his fourth Masters semis after beating British youngster Jack Draper 7-6 (7-4), 6-1.

“It’s very important for my confidence, for myself,” said Carreno Busta said. “I’m playing very solid. I know tomorrow I have the opportunity to be in the final. I need to be 100 per cent again. I need to recover as much as I can.

“Evans is having an incredible week also, so we’ll see. But I have another opportunity to be in a final.”

Carreno Busta is already assured of moving back into the top 20 as he is up to No 17 in the live rankings with 16th place assured if he reaches the final.

What time are the Canadian Open semi-finals?

It will be a first-ever top-level meeting between Evans and Carreno Busta and the match is scheduled to start 01:00 BST on Sunday morning in the UK.

The winner of that clash will face either fourth seed Casper Ruud or eighth seed Hubert Hurkacz. French Open runner-up Ruud beat Felix Auger-Aliassime 6-1, 6-2 while Pole Hurkacz was a 7-6 (7-4), 6-7 (5-7), 6-1 winner over Nick Kyrgios.

The Ruud-Hurkacz clash is set to start at 20:00 BST on Saturday in the UK.
