Kyle Edmund off to a flying start at Winston-Salem Open
Kyle Edmund made light work of Leonardo Mayer in the second round of the Winston-Salem Open on Tuesday.
The British No 1, who earlier in the day was named in Team Europe for the 2018 Laver Cup, required only one hour and 18 minutes to beat Mayer 6-3, 6-3.
Third-seeded Edmund, who is still looking for his first ATP Tour singles title, broke twice in the first set and once in the second while he didn’t face a single break point on his own serve.
