Kyle Edmund’s winning run over while Dominic Thiem eases into Vienna quarters
Kyle Edmund’s unbeaten run came to an end in the second round of the Vienna Open as he went down in three sets to Fernando Verdasco.
Having won his maiden title at the European Open in Antwerp on Sunday, Edmund made it five wins in row when he won his opening match against Diego Schwartzman.
However, Spaniard Verdasco knocked the British No 1 out of the Austrian event on Thursday with a 6-4, 3-6, 6-3 victory in one hour and 56 minutes.
Top seed Dominic Thiem had no problems booking his place in the quarter-finals as the Austrian secured a 6-4, 6-4 win over Jack Sock thanks to one break of serve in each set.
Next up for Thiem is Kei Nishikori after the fifth seed beat Karen Khachanov 6-2, 6-2.
