Kyle Edmund, Frances Tiafoe, and Jo-Wilfried Tsonga claim impressive Citi Open wins
Kyle Edmund eased himself into the third round of the Citi Open after a comfortable win over South African Lloyd Harris.
The British number one needed just 69 minutes in Washington to wrap up his 6-1, 6-4 success, as he aims to rebuild his ranking after a disappointing 18 months on the tour.
Edmund will now face Jo-Wilfried Tsonga after the Frenchman recaptured some of his old form to beat second seed Karen Khachanov 6-4, 2-6, 7-5.
“I played very good tennis,” Tsonga said. “Everything went OK. Just very happy to go through. It’s good to see some results for all the hard work.
“When you play so long, sometimes you don’t feel like yourself.
“Sometimes you lose your personality. I try to keep it and bring it back on court. When you are like this, it’s a lot better.”

Home favourite Frances Tiafoe also advanced, beating Kazakhstan’s Alexander Bublik 6-1, 7-6 (7-5).
However, the American’s continuation in the tournament is under threat from a foot injury sustained during the match.
“I’m very happy to return home with a win,” 16th seed Tiafoe said in a statement.
“Unfortunately at the end of my match I felt a tweak in my foot. In the interest of making sure I can play my next match to the fullest, I will be getting my foot checked out.”
