Madrid Open | Kyle Edmund beats Novak Djokovic

British number one Kyle Edmund beat 12-time Grand Slam champion Novak Djokovic in three sets to reach the third round of the Madrid Open.

Incredible to share the court with a legend and come away with the win! Kyle Edmund

Edmund, 23, beat the 30-year-old Serb 6-3 2-6 6-3 in one hour, 40 minutes and will now climb into the world’s top 20.

He will play David Goffin in the next round after the Belgian’s 7-5 6-3 win over Robin Haase of the Netherlands.

“Incredible to share the court with a legend and come away with the win!” said Edmund on Instagram.

He added: “It’s time to try and beat these guys and I was pleased how I managed my game.”

The pair traded breaks to begin the match before a double fault by Djokovic, currently ranked 12th in the world, handed Edmund the initiative.

The Briton closed out the first set but a scrappy second, with Edmund hitting 10 unforced errors to Djokovic’s three, allowed the former world number one to force a decider.

After breaking the two-time Madrid champion in the third, Edmund saved three break points before serving out the final set to progress.

Current world number one Rafael Nadal made short work of his second-round match with France’s Gael Monfils, with the Spaniard winning 6-3 6-1 to continue his bid for a sixth title in Spain.
