Indian Wells | Edmund eases into round three

In Sunday’s opening match on Stadium 4 – they don’t do outside courts here – Britain’s 22nd seeded Kyle Edmund breezed past Nicolas Jarry in fifty minutes for the loss of just two games.

The Chilean was never able to recapture the form that had seen him score an upset victory over home favourite Frances Tiafoe in the featured night match on Stadium 1 less than forty-eight hours earlier. Edmund simply out-powered him with his huge forehand, and will now face Moldova’s Radu Albot who upset Novak Djojkovic’s doubles partner Fabio Fognini.

Sadly for British fans, Johanna Konta was unable to progress to the last sixteen as she fell to a 7-6(10) 6-4 defeat in a hard-fought third round match against Kiki Bertens of the Netherlands, now ranked an impressive No.7 in the world compared to Konta’s No.45.

Amongst the leading seeds Roger Federer, Rafael Nadal and Simona Halep all progressed with straight-sets victories, but 1999 Indian Wells champion Serena Williams was forced to retire from her match with Spain’s Garbine Muguruza due to illness when trailing 3-6 0-1.

The scheduling of night session matches continues to baffle Stadium 1 ticket holders, with the prime time match between Ashleigh Barty and Jennifer Brady watched by just a few hundred spectators in a stadium that holds over 16,000.
