Antwerp | Edmund reaches European Open final

Kyle Edmund has reached the second ATP final of his career following his defeat of Richard Gasquet at the European Open in Antwerp.

The British No.1, the top seed of the ATP 250 event, beat the 2016 champion and fourth seed from Frenchman, 6-3 6-4 as he dominated the semi-final without dropping his serve, which he hasn’t done all week. Edmund saved five break points and broke Gasquet twice and secured his place in the final after 76-minutes.

The 23-year-old, who had been handed a walkover into the last four when his scheduled quarter-final opponent Ilya Ivashka was forced to withdraw with a thigh injury, broke Gasquet in the second game of the first set en route to going 3 0 up.

The second set then saw him break in the third as he wrapped up the win.

As he chases his first title on the ATP Tour, Edmund will have to overcome another tricky Frenchman, the highly entertaining Gael Monfils who is aiming to collect his eighth.

Monfils hit 10 aces while beating the second seeded Diego Schwartzman of Argentina, also 6-3 6-4.
