Result: Dominic Thiem comeback stuns Stanislas Wawrinka

Austria's Dominic Thiem comes from a set down to beat third seed Stanislas Wawrinka 1-6 6-2 6-4 in the second round of the Madrid Masters.

Stanislas Wawrinka has been knocked out of the Madrid Masters by qualifier Dominic Thiem in the second round of the tournament, losing 1-6 6-2 6-4.

The third seed appeared to be cruising to an easy win over the world number 70 when he wrapped up the opening set in only seven games, facing just two break points.

However, the Austrian hit back early in the second, breaking in Wawrinka's opening service game while upping his own serve to level the match.

Both players fought hard in the deciding set as they sought a place in the third round, but Thiem managed to save a couple of break points to take a 5-4 lead.

Serving to stay in the match, an error on his backhand from the Australian Open champion gave his 20-year-old opponent match point, which he claimed to set up a third-round meeting with either Mikhail Youzhny or Feliciano Lopez.
