Kyle Edmund through to Madrid Open quarter-finals with win over David Goffin

Britain’s Kyle Edmund produced another impressive performance to secure a place in the Madrid Open quarter-finals.

The 23-year-old, who knocked out former world number one Novak Djokovic in the previous round, swept past last-16 opponent David Goffin 6-3 6-3.

Edmund, who will break into the world’s top 20 after defeating 12-time grand slam champion Djokovic, now faces 19-year-old Denis Shapovalov, who beat fellow Canadian Milos Raonic 6-4 6-4.

Edmund built on the Djokovic display in emphatic fashion, taking control from the opening game, when he broke Goffin’s serve.

He then kept the Belgian on the back foot throughout and forced several errors from his opponent.

After breaking Goffin’s serve in the opening game, Edmund went on to lose just four points in his first four service games and took the set in 32 minutes.

Edmund saved two break points on his first service game in set two, digging deep as Goffin tried to force his way back into the contest.

But he then closed it out by clinching victory with a third match point, sealing a last-eight spot in one hour and 12 minutes.

“There were lots of good things. I managed my game very well today,” Edmund told Sky Sports.

“My game is one of those where the better I manage it and pick my moments to be aggressive, then I play well.

“I served really well today. It got me through easy games and also got me out of some tricky situations. He is a top player, top 10 in the world, so it is very pleasing.”
