The all-British match-up between Kyle Edmund and Dan Evans went the way of the stats but not without Edmund making things hard for himself. Edmund had to come from 1-4 down to take the first set, before storming ahead to set up a clash with Rafael Nadal.
Pablo Cuevas has turned his fortunes around after a slow start to the year, making short shrift of Viktor Troicki on a good day for all the seeds who were in action.
That being said, it was a close run thing for Tomas Berdych, who dropped the first set and mounted a fight back to progress.
Novak Djokovic was in doubles action with Viktor Troicki, and will be in singles action on Tuesday. His confidence looks to be high after his own elbow woes.
Andy Murray and Rafael Nadal are likely to be scheduled on Wednesday.
