Edmund, who ended Andy Murray‘s close to 12-year reign as British No. 1 in March, made the final eight on the Brisbane Worldwide and the Australian Open earlier this yr, and he’s now into one other quarterfinal after overcoming an untidy begin to beat Albot 6-,2 6-Four.
Neither participant may maintain their serve within the first three video games, however Edmund transformed three break factors to take the opening set in below 39 minutes.
And he sealed the match within the second set with a deep volley that compelled an unforced error from Albot.
Edmund is now the very best seed left within the match, with No. 1 seed Albert Ramos-Vinolas exiting the match Wednesday.
