Felix Auger-Aliassime celebrates

Next Gen star Felix Auger-Aliassime made light work of Cameron Norrie to earn himself a second-round clash against Stefanos Tsitsipas at the Indian Wells Masters.

Canadian Auger-Aliassime, who broke once in the first set and twice in the second, required just 63 minutes to beat Norrie 6-3, 6-2.

Next up for the wildcard is ninth seed Tsitsipas.

Ivo Karlovic, meanwhile, became the first player since Jimmy Connors in 1995 to win an ATP Tour match at the age of 40 and over after he beat Matthew Edben 7-6 (7-3), 7-6 (7-3) in one hour and 49 minutes.

Croatian Karlovic, who turned 40 on February 28, will take on compatriot Borna Coric in the second round.

It was also a historic day for Prajnesh Gunneswaran as the Indian played in his first-ever ATP Masters 1000 match, and he won the encounter against Benoit Paire as he secured a 7-6 (7-5), 6-4 win.

Also through are Philipp Kohlschreiber, Albert Ramos, Jordan Thompson and Sam Querrey.
