Evans, ranked 33 in the world, responded by winning a third break-point to take a 6-5 lead and then served to love to take the opener.

Edmund had to work a little harder for his victory at the ASB Classic in New Zealand, where he was taken to three sets in a rain-affected clash before overcoming Alejandro Davidovich Fokina to record his first win of 2020.
The 25-year-old world No 69 won the first set in relatively-comfortable fashion but saw his opponent hit back in a second set that included a lengthy stoppage for rain when Davidovich Fokina was serving at 5-4 up.
