British number one Dan Evans continued his good form on clay to reach the Madrid Open last 16 with a three-set win against Australia's John Millman.

Evans was edged out of the first set in a tie-break, but maintained his focus and used variety to fight back.

He turned the match around to win 6-7 (5-7) 6-2 6-3 and will face German fifth seed Alexander Zverev next.

In the women's event, Australian world number one Ashleigh Barty beat Czech Petra Kvitova to reach the semi-finals.

Barty, who won 6-1 3-6 6-3 against the three-time champion, will face Spanish wildcard Paula Badosa in the last four.
