Munich | Edmund falls at first hurdle
British number one Kyle Edmund, the fifth seed at the Munich Open, suffered his third straight defeat as he tries to find some form before the French Open at the end of this month.
He lost to Denis Kundla, ranked 82 and from the US, 6-4 6-3 in his opening match in Munich, and has so far only scored one win during this clay court season, at Marrakech when he ousted the French youngster Ugo Humbert before losing to Jo-Wilfried Tsonga.
He then lost in Monte Carlo to Diego Schwartzman before arriving in Munich where he hoped his fortunes would turn around.
Currently ranked 22, the Yorkshireman was unable to prevent Kudla, on a five-match losing streak himself, from dominating the court and converted three of 10 break points in the 77-minute match.
