Thompson takes down Tsitsipas
Earlier on Friday, Stefanos Tsitsipas was beaten 7-6 (0), 4-6, 7-6 (5) by Aussie Jordan Thompson in second-round play.
The second-seeded Tsitsipas had his shoulder taped and the injury appeared to affect his backhand.
Jordan took advantage and attacked the Greek's backhand while charging in on short balls to earn his second career win over a top-10 player.
He polished off Tsitsipas, the Australian Open runner-up, in two hours, 37 minutes.
No. 3 seed Casper Ruud cruised past Diego Schwartzman 6-2, 6-3. Ruud raced to a 4-1 lead in the first set and won the only break point on his serve with a forehand that clipped the line.
