TENNIS: Edmund triumphs with first Tour title
Tickton tennis ace and British Number One Kyle Edmund sealed his maiden ATP title with a 3-6 7-6 (7-2) 7-6 (7-4) win against Gael Monfils at the European Open in Antwerp.
Monfils, 32, the world number 38, broke in Edmund’s first service game and took the opening set in 31 minutes. Both men broke in the next but top seed Edmund, 23, world ranked 15, dominated the tie-break to force a deciding set.
The Briton then secured another tie-break to wrap up victory in two hours and 26 minutes.
It was only Edmund’s second final, having lost 6-2 6-2 to Spain’s Pablo Andujar at the Grand Prix Hassan II in Marrakesh in April.
