Dan Evans is into round three of the US Open after overcoming American Marcos Giron in four sets.
The British No 1 came through 6-4 7-6 2-6 6-3 in a rain-interrupted match to reach the third round for the fourth time in his career. He is yet to make it past the third round in New York.
He will face Alexei Popyrin next after the Australian received a walkover following the retirement of Grigor Dimitrov in the third set of their encounter.
