Great Britain's Dan Evans will face Roger Federer in the third round at Wimbledon after beating Ukrainian 30th seed Alexandr Dolgopolov.
Evans, 26, won 7-6 (8-6) 6-4 6-1 on Thursday.
Former world number one Federer, a seven-times Wimbledon champion, beat British qualifier Marcus Willis in round two.
"It's going to be good fun and an amazing experience to face Federer," Evans said.
"I have got to prepare like I have a chance to win the match.
"I have to put to the back of my mind that he is one of the best players ever to play the game."
British number four Evans had never won at Wimbledon before this year, but ended that run by beating Germany's Jan-Lennard Struff in the first round.
