Kyle Edmund shoots for stars after downing Djokovic

Kyle Edmund sets up Novak Djokovic tie at the Madrid Open

Edmund earned his 6-3, 2-6, 6-3 win over the 10th-seed and former world No.1 Djokovic in an hour and 29 minutes, reports Efe.

In another men's singles clash, Canadian tennis star Milos Raonic will take on Israel's Denis Shapovalov for a last-eight berth, while fifth-seed Dominic Thiem of Austria will lock horns with Croatia's Borna Coric. The former world No.1 has not played a competitive match since Wimbledon last summer and aborted comeback attempts at the US Open and Australian Open in January after which he had surgery in Melbourne. He will continue doing a lot of great things in the future.

"I managed my game very well", Edmund said. "It's time to try and beat these guys and I was pleased how I managed my game".

However, the Serbian is not too anxious, he said: "Obviously I'm disappointed from losing this match, but I can be happy with the progress of the level of my tennis".

"But I have to keep working on them and pray that - and hope that my game will get stronger, get better as definitely as the matches. go the distance".

"He is a top player, top ten in the world, so it is very
pleasing".

He then kept the Belgian on the back foot throughout and forced several errors from his opponent.

Edmund broke Goffin's serve during the early stages of the contest and it set the tone as the 23-year-old dropped just four points behind his own delivery in the opening set.

World No 16 Schwartzman served up a minor scare by breaking back for 4-4 in the second set, but Nadal responded immediately and closed out for a history-making win.

Australian Open champion Caroline Wozniacki edged past Ashleigh Barty 6-2, 4-6, 6-4.

Djokovic claimed a morale-boosting win over Kei Nishikori in the first round at the Caja Magica, but Edmund consigned the 10th seed to a 6-3 2-6 6-3 defeat on Wednesday.

In the wake of news that Andy Murray may not return from a hip injury in time for the grass-court season, Kyle Edmund has stepped to the fore of British tennis in style at the Madrid Open.

Unseeded Sharapova will next face last year's finalist Kristina Mladenovic, who edged China's Zhang Shuai 6-4 4-6 6-3.
