Dan Evans breezes past Constant Lestienne to reach European Open quarter-finals

Dan Evans has progressed to the quarter-finals of the European Open after easing past Constant Lestienne in Antwerp.

Evans, seeded fifth, needed only 75 minutes to dispatch the Frenchman 6-2 6-1 as he chases his first tour-level title of the season.

The 32-year-old won 82 per cent of his first-serve points and broke five times to take the win.

In Stockholm, it was a much longer afternoon for Cameron Norrie but it ended in a 150th tour-level win for the 27-year-old.

He eventually overcame Aslan Karatsev 6-7 (8) 6-3 6-4 in a match which took more than three hours.
