Ana Konjuh could be a live title prospect in the Dubai Champion­ship and the Croat could have enough to see off inconsistent third-round opponent Elena Vesnina.

Bookmakers are giving little away on Konjuh – it was a similar story with their initial outright quotes on the tournament – but after straight-sets triumphs over Shuai Zhang and Sam Stosur there is little to deter fans of the 19-year-old from getting involved again.

Vesnina, who as eighth seed received a first-round bye, dis­missed Misaki Doi 6-2 7-5 on Tuesday but that was nothing less than expected.

Her last-16 task looks tougher and Konjuh is definitely good enough to shine in a Premier Five tournament such as Dubai.

Kyle Edmund returns to action against Yen-Hsun Lu in the wake of his Delray Beach first-round victory over Adrian Mannarino. The Briton could progress, but Lu can be a doughty rival.
