Result: Alexandr Dolgopolov knocks out Stanislas Wawrinka

Ukraine's Alexandr Dolgopolov knocks Australian Open champion Stanislas Wawrinka out of the Miami Masters in three sets.

Alexandr Dolgopolov has stunned Stanislas Wawrinka to progress to the quarter-finals at the Miami Masters, beating the Australian Open champion 6-4 3-6 6-1.

The Ukrainian needed just a single break to clinch the opener, but the world number three rallied in the second, winning three games in a row to level the match.

Dolgopolov had two chances to break the Swiss in the second, but was unable to capitalise on his opportunities, ensuring that the match went to a deciding set.

However, the 22nd seed raised his game again, securing two early breaks as Wawrinka held serve just once, allowing Dolgopolov to wrap up his second win against a top 10 ranked player this month following his win over Rafael Nadal at Indian Wells.

Dolgopolov faces either Tomas Berdych or John Isner in the last eight.
