Pouille looks a solid favourite in Barcelona

Murray through to round three

Lucas Pouille on the way to beating Pablo Cuevas
1 of 1

Sky Sports 5 & Mix, 10am Thursday

Fast-improving Briton Dan Evans has made it to the third round of the Barcelona Open - the furthest he has gone in any ATP clay court event - but he may meet his match against world number nine Dominic Thiem.

Evans defeated Thiem 3-6 6-4 6-1 on a hard court in Sydney earlier this year but the slower conditions are set to favour the Austrian, who is the 1-8 favourite.

Thiem has won six clay court titles in the last two years and is the 28-1 sixth favourite in the French Open betting.

Andy Murray advanced to the third round after his second round opponent, Bernard Tomic, withdrew with a back injury.

Lucas Pouille has climbed to a career high ranking of 14 after his run to the semi-finals of the Monte Carlo Masters and he looks a solid favourite to defeat towering Czech Jiri Vesely, the world nthe umber 58, in the Hungarian Open second round.

Vesely played well to overcome Borna Coric in the first round but faces a step up against tournament top seed Pouille, who defeated three top-50 ranked players on his run to the Monte Carlo last four.
