Canadian top seed Milos Raonic came from a set down to beat British number four Aljaz Bedene and reach the last eight at the Istanbul Open.

Bedene, 27, took the opening set against last year's Wimbledon finalist, who was playing for only the second time since February due to injury.

But the 26-year-old world number six eventually won 6-7 (5-7) 6-3 7-6 (7-3) in just over two and a half hours.

He will now face Australian sixth seed Bernard Tomic in the quarter-finals.

Bedene reached Sunday's Hungarian Open final where he was beaten by Frenchman Lucas Pouille.
