KYLE EDMUND is through to the third round of a Grand Slam for the first time and hoping to keep his run going when he takes on home favourite John Isner at the US Open today.
The British No.2 crashed in straight sets to the big-serving American beanpole at this year’s French Open – their only previous meeting – but will hope to run him closer this time and is 23-10 at William Hill to eliminate the 20th seed and 5-11 at bwin to take a set.
The day’s other matches see top seed Novak Djokovic take on Mikhail Youzhny and and Rafa Nadal face Andrey Kuznetsov while British women’s No.1 Johanna Konta faces a tricky tie against 24th seed Belinda Bencic.
Away from Flushing Meadows there’s Tour of Spain cycling and the start of rugby’s Pro12 and Aviva Premership among the sporting highlights so as usual post your tips and chat here.
