British No 1 Kyle Edmund breezes into Marrakech quarter-finals
Kyle Edmund brushed aside Radu Albot on Thursday to reach the quarter-finals of the Grand Prix Hassan II.
The British No 1 claimed a 6-2, 6-4 victory over the man from Moldova in one hour and 24 minutes to secure a last-eight encounter against Tunisia’s Malek Jaziri after the 34-year-old upset the eighth-seeded Mischa Zverev 6-2, 6-4
“Playing Radu today, he puts a lot of balls in court, so I knew I had to beat him, instead of him giving me the match,” the Australian Open semi-finalist said.
“It gives me another opportunity the day after to play again and that is the main thing.”
Nikoloz Basilashvili also advanced as he beat Moroccan wildcard Lamine Ouahab, who upset third seed Philipp Kohlschreiber earlier in the week, 7-6 (7-5), 5-7, 6-3.
The Georgian will face Portugal’s Joao Sousa for a place in the semi-finals.
