Cameron Norrie (Indian Wells outright 50/1) is through to round four of the Indian Wells in California while British number one Dan Evans has been knocked out.

Norrie, the 21st seed in the tournament, came through a three-set thriller against Spanish challenger Roberto Bautista Agut.

He won 6-4 5-7 6-3 to progress through to the last 16 – his longest run in a Masters 1000 tournament.

It marked his 43rd victory of what has been an excellent season for Norrie, who has risen to a career-high ranking of 26.

His next opponent will be American Tommy Paul (Match betting – Paul 15/8, Norrie 2/5), who stunned fourth seed Andrey Rublev in three sets.

Earlier, Evans looked to be in command of his third-round tie against Argentine Diego Schwartzman but threw it all away to be beaten in three sets.

The 31-year-old took the first set and was 4-2 up in the next – just two service holds away from victory.

However, Schwartzman roared back to form, reeling off ten consecutive games to stun Evans 5-7 6-4 6-0.

Afterwards, the Brit stated his collapse was more mental than physical.

“Three full sets isn’t an issue for me,” Evans asserted after his game. “Nor is five sets. I obviously played a pretty poor game at 4-3 and lost my focus.

“Then he got pretty hot and it just ran away from me really. It was more upstairs than downstairs. I feel like my game is in a good place.

“Today is a hiccup. It was not a great end to the trip. With a bit more focus, I could have been out of there in two sets.”

Later on Tuesday, Andy Murray faces third seed Alexander Zverev (Match betting – Murray 10/3, Zverev 1/5) looking to book his place in round four.

The former Wimbledon champion was a wildcard entry to the tournament following four years of hip injury hell and has beaten Adrian Mannarino and Carlos Alcaraz to get to this stage.
