Jack Draper's superb 2022 continued when he beat veteran Fabio Fognini at the Winston-Salem Open
and is rewarded with a third-round clash against Dominic Thiem.
The British No.4 enters the tournament after an impressive run at the ATP Masters 1000 Canadian Open,
where he cruised through qualifying and reached the quarter-finals, defeating third seed Stefanos Tsitsipas along the way.
And on Tuesday, he produced another quality display at the ATP 250 event against the former world number nine, winning 6-2, 4-6, 6-1 in less than two hours.
The 20-year-old made a poor start to the match when he was broken in the opening game but immediately hit back before breaking again in games six and eight to take the set.
The second set had a similar theme with the pair sharing early breaks before the Italian hit a decisive break in the seventh game to take the decider.
The Brit controlled proceedings in the third set as he raced to a 5-0 lead before ending the match with his first match point.
Draper reached a career-high 55 in the ATP rankings after his run in Montreal and is tipped to move up to 52 after his latest victory,
