Evans leads most of the stats as the most consistent and aggressive player of the two but Goffin is clinical when he gets his opportunities so Evans will need to raise his level of play on the big points.
Goffin has been plagued by injuries last season and just when the Belgian was getting back on a roll in Sydney, a knee injury forced him to retire against Andy Murray. On his day, Goffin can frustrate his opponents with unbelievable defensive skills transitioning into deadly attacking shots.
Even though Goffin has a good past record at the Australian Open, Evans’ form is very good right now with the Brit having the confidence to mix things up as well as being aggressive. Evans should go through relatively easily against an injury-prone Goffin and move into the next round.
