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 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.
