Tommy Robredo has progressed to the third round of the Miami Masters with a 6-4 7-6(8) win over Austria's Dominic Thiem this evening.

The 16th seed clinched an early break in the first set as his opponent made a couple of double faults.

However, Thiem kept his serve tidy in the second set, ensuring that he took the Spaniard to a tie-break.

The world number 86 made a strong start, and had a chance to level the match when he brought up a set point, but Robredo managed to keep himself in contention before wrapping the match up against his tiring opponent a couple of points later.

Robredo will face either Julien Benneteau or Ernests Gulbis in the next round.
