Day 6 of the US Open: Dan Evans is out but Cameron Norrie takes on Andrey Rublev

Cameron Norrie is the last British singles player to stand at the US Open after beating Holger Rune and losing Dan Evans to Marin Cilic.

Norrie is yet to give up a set and meets Russia’s Andrey Rublev, who survived a crucial tiebreak against Denis Shapovalov, in his first match in the fourth round at Flushing Meadows.

Rafael Nadal extended his unbeaten record against Richard Gasquet to 18-0 while Iga Swiatek recovered from a 4-1 deficit in the second set to defeat Lauren Davis 6-3, 6-4.
