Dan Evans says that he is relishing playing in the third round of the US Open after advancing past Bernard Tomic.

British number three Dan Evans has expressed his delight with his current form after advancing to the third round of the US Open on Thursday.

The world number 179 recovered from dropping the first set to upset Bernard Tomic 6-1 3-6 6-7 3-6 at Flushing Meadows.

Despite already surpassing many people's expectations, Evans insists that he is targeting victory in the third round.

"It's a nice thing to do, but I want to play again on Saturday and it would be nice to get out there and win that one as well," Evans told Sky Sports News.

"The money helps, but I'm just waiting to play each match and I'm enjoying myself and can't wait to play again on Saturday I think."

Evans had beaten 11th seed Kei Nishikori in straight sets in the first round.
