Britain's Jack Draper through to last 16 in Winston-Salem Open as Kyle Edmund is knocked out

British number four Jack Draper beat Fabio Fognini at the ATP Winston-Salem Open in North Carolina to set up a last-16 encounter against Dominic Thiem, while Kyle Edmund crashed out.

Draper was looking to maintain momentum from his fine run in Montreal, where he entered as a qualifier and went on to upset Stefanos Tsitsipas as well as Gael Monfils in reaching the quarter-finals - a run which saw him rise to a career-high ranking of 55.

On Tuesday the pair exchanged breaks in the opening set before the 20-year-old, seeded 13 and handed a first-round bye, stepped up his return game to snatch a second break and take the set.

Fognini lifted his return game to take the following set but then seemed to run out of energy in the decider, with Draper outlasting his opponent to book a spot against 2020 US Open champion Thiem.

Earlier, Edmund fell 6-4 7-6 (5) to French 10th seed Benjamin Bonzi.

Edmund, who beat Greek Michail Pervolarakis in the first round, was broken twice in the opening set as Bonzi opened up a 5-3 lead before closing it out on his next service game.

The 26-year-old Frenchman then proceeded to claim the second set and snap a run of four straight three-set losses.
