British number one Dan Evans beat Jurij Rodionov to reach the quarter-finals of the Vienna Open.

The 30-year-old beat the Austrian wildcard 7-5 6-3 to reach his third ATP 500 quarter-final of the year.

Evans fought back from a break down in each set against Rodionov and won the final five games to seal victory in Austria.

He will face Grigor Dimitrov after the Bulgarian stunned Greek third seed Stefanos Tsitsipas 6-7 (5-7) 6-4 6-3.

The result was Dimitrov's first win over a top 10 player in 2020.

US Open champion Dominic Thiem also progressed with a 6-3 6-2 win over Chile's Cristian Garin.

The Austrian will play in-form Russian Andrey Rublev for a place in the semi-finals.
