Jack Draper takes his first top 10 win as three Brits advance in Montreal

Jack Draper defeated Stefanos Tsitsipas to earn his first win over a top 10 player as he became the third Brit to qualify for the third round of the National Bank Open.

Draper had to fight his way back from a break in the second break before ending the game 7-5, 6-4 (4) just before 1 a.m. in Montreal.

World number eight Tsitsipas was let down by his forehand and made 40 unforced errors throughout the game. Draper took on 17th seed Gael Monfils later on Thursday for a place in the quarterfinals.

Britain’s number two Dan Evans, meanwhile, shocked eighth place Andrey Rublev to qualify for the tournament’s last 16 for the first time.

The 6-4, 6-4 win over the Russian was Evans’ fifth win against a top-10 opponent, with the 32-year-old next up against 10th-seeded American Taylor Fritz.

Cameron Norrie meets hometown hero Felix Auger-Aliassime for the second time in a week after Britain’s number one defeated Botic van de Zandschulp in straight sets.

Norrie, who beat the Canadian for the first time in five encounters in Saturday’s Abierto de Tenis Mifel semifinals, defeated the Dutchman 6-1, 6-2.
