Gregoire Barrere of France caused an upset after defeating Britain’s Cameron Norrie in the second round of the Miami Open. The 27-year-old Norrie had won the biggest title of his career at the tournament last year and was also a quarterfinalist in the previous edition. However, Barrere proved too strong for Norrie in this encounter and sealed a comfortable 6-3, 6-2 victory in just over an hour. Up next, he will face Christopher Eubanks, who recorded the biggest victory of his career to knock out 17th-seeded Borna Coric. Meanwhile, British number two Dan Evans suffered his sixth consecutive defeat, losing to Italy’s Lorenzo Sonego 4-6, 6-3, 6-2 in two and a half hours. Jiri Lehecka of Czech Republic continued his impressive form, reaching the third round of an ATP Masters 1000 event for the first time with victory over 18th-seeded Lorenzo Musetti. Second seed Stefanos Tsitsipas was handed a walkover while fourth-seeded Daniil Medvedev won easily against Spain’s Roberto Carballes Baena and fifth-seeded Felix Auger-Aliassime of Canada beat Thiago Monteiro. Home favorite Mackenzie McDonald pulled off an upset by defeating 19th-seeded Matteo Berrettini while Karen Khachanov, Alex de Minaur, Cristian Garin, Adrian Mannarino, and Frances Tiafoe all advanced to the next round with hard-fought victories.
