Dan Evans thinks he has a good chance of beating Radu Albot in the Delray Beach Open final after knocking the top seed John Isner out.

Neither of the finalists has won an ATP Tour competition before but Evans is 4/9 to come out on top on Sunday with Moldovan Albot 7/4 to emerge victorious.

World number 148 Evans said after recording a stunning 3-6 6-2 6-3 victory against Isner: "I just play every match as it comes, every point, every game. The ball is coming and I'm just trying to focus on myself.

"I'm moving well, I'm playing pretty good, so I think I'm difficult to play.

"I started to see his serve pretty well. I wouldn't say I was guessing, but I was sort of anticipating and I got it right. Other days I could be looking stupid going one way and he puts it the other way."

Evans broke Isner's serve three times in a row on his way to the victory and has now won six matches in the tournament after coming through qualifying.

Albot reached the final by getting the better of Mackenzie McDonald 3-6 6-0 6-0 in the other last-four clash.

"Sunday is a different day, different match," Albot said. "I think I need to relax a little bit, enjoy the moment and I will think about [the final] a little bit later."
