Kyle Edmund’s excellent run at the Miami Open Masters was brought to an end by an oaf in the crowd who called out during the second set tiebreak at an extremely crucial point of the fourth round match.

You have no control . . . they keep shouting at every point . . . unbelievable Kyle Edmund

It completely destroyed the British No.1’s concentration leaving him no time to recover his focus as Isner claimed the awaiting quarter-final place, 7-6(5) 7-6(3).

Having claimed the opening set on a tiebreak, Edmund had recovered his poise to force another in the second.

But when serving at 3-5 down, there was a shout of “out” from the crowd following a return from the American down the baseline. However, play continued with Edmund raising his arm to attract the umpire’s attention who halted the match a few shots later.

Edmund then pointed out to the Brazilian umpire, Carlos Bernardes, that out had been called, to which Bernardes responded: “It is the public . . . you cannot stop like this, it is the person from the crowd.”

Edmund pointed out: “I didn’t stop”, then added: “You have no control . . . they keep shouting at every point . . . unbelievable.”

Isner was awarded the point to leave him serving for the match at 6-3.

After another heated exchange with the chair from the Briton before play eventually resumed, Isner, the defending champion and seventh seed, produced his 17th ace to secure his place in the quarter-finals.

    Miami seems to be bad for crowd control , can no one catch the people responsible? Surely they are on camera ? And explain to them how not to behave ,

  2. Matti Young

    The umpire today’s match Djokovic v Bautista Agut had control of the spectators. It was disgraceful yesterday.
