The Romanian hit back by taking the second set and then appeared to be on course for victory as she led 3-2 in the decider.

But Dart rallied and reeled off four successive games to claim the victory and set up a meeting with world No 243 Liang En-shuo of Taiwan.

However, there will not be back-to-back appearances in the main draw for Liam Broady after he went down 6-1 6-3 to Russian Roman Safiullin.
