JAMIE DON­ALD­SON will take a one-shot lead into to­day’s fi­nal round of the Cyprus Open.

The Welsh­man (above) is bid­ding to com­plete a re­mark­able come­back – six years on from seal­ing the win­ning point for Europe at the 2014 Ry­der Cup in Scot­land.

Don­ald­son, 45, lost his Tour card in 2018 but a third-round 69 yes­ter­day put him in pole po­si­tion to claim a first vic­tory since win­ning the Czech Mas­ters six years ago.

DAN EVANS missed out on a place in the Vi­enna Open fi­nal af­ter los­ing to Italy’s Lorenzo Sonego yes­ter­day.

Sonego, who stunned world No.1 No­vak Djokovic in the last eight, kept up his form with a 6-3 6-4 win.

The Bri­tish No.1, who re­ceived treat­ment for a shoul­der in­jury mid­way through the game, could not find enough to trou­ble Sonego.

Sonego came as a lucky loser but now faces Rus­sian An­drey Rublev.
