In the second round of the Monte Carlo Masters, British number one Cameron Norrie was defeated by Albert Ramos-Vinolas.

Norrie forced a tiebreaker before Ramos-Vinolas of Spain, who was hampered by an abdominal injury, won 6-4 2-6 6-4.

Ramos-Vinolas, the world number 37, has won all four of his clay encounters against Norrie, the world number ten.

Dan Evans, a compatriot, was defeated 7-6 (7-3) 6-2 by Belgian David Goffin in the second round.

Evans, the British number two, who reached the event’s semi-finals last year, cut a disgruntled figure in the last portions of his match.
