British No.1 Dan Evans swept past Alexander Bublik to secure a place in the Adelaide International quarter-finals while Davis Cup team-mate Kyle Edmund also made progress in Auckland.

Evans, fresh from a convincing victory against Juan Londero in the first round, only needed 75 minutes to secure a 7-5, 6-2 win over Bublik and book his spot in the last eight.

Kazakhstan’s Bublik lost his serve to go down 5-4 in the first set but broke back for 5-5. Evans, ranked No.33 in the world, responded by winning a third break point to take a 6-5 lead and then served to love to take the opener.

The second set was a more pedestrian affair, as Evans won five of the first six games and served out the match. He will now face either No.3 seed Andrey Rublev or Sam Querrey for a place in the semi-finals.

In Adelaide, Edmund had to work a little harder than Evans for his victory at the ASB Classic in New Zealand, where he overcame Alejandro Davidovich Fokina 6-2, 4-6, 6-3.
