Australia’s Alex de Minaur sent former world No 1 Daniil Medvedev crashing out of the Paris Masters on Wednesday, rediscovering his momentum in the final set to win 6-4, 2-6, 7-5.
Earlier, fifth-ranked Stefanos Tsitsipas had no problem in seeing off Britain’s Dan Evans 6-3, 6-4 to book his place in the last 16.

De Minaur rallied from 0-2 in a topsy-turvy final set but squandered two match points on the Russian’s serve in a gripping 10th game.
Despite that disappointment, he was again aggressive on return at 6-5 and a Medvedev double fault on a fourth match point at 30/40 gave De Minaur the biggest win of his career.
