Britain’s Dan Evans caused a huge upset by stunning world No.7 Marin Cilic to reach the third round of the Australian Open for the first time.
Evans, ranked 51st in the world, fought back from a poor first set to beat the Croat 3-6, 7-5, 6-3, 6-3.
It is the second time the British No.3 has beaten a player ranked in the world’s top 10 after seeing off Dominic Thiem in Sydney last week.
It is the fourth time Evans has progressed to the last 32 of a Grand Slam – he reached the third round of the US Open in 2013 and 2016, and at Wimbledon in 2016.
