But the German world number six soon got into his stride as Evans complained about the lights inside the Manolo Santana Stadium.

Zverev broke back twice to race into a 4-1 lead and took the opening set with his first ace of the match.

There was a bizarre delay before the start of the second set as officials investigated a burning smell at the back of the court.
