Coming into your last tournament of the year on the back of eight straight defeats and potentially finishing the year outside the top 80 was a scary prospect for Kyle Edmund but the Brit has looked so invested in his opening two matches at the Paris Masters.
Tuesday saw an impressive 6-4 6-3 win against Ricardas Berankis who came through qualifying.
The Brit looked strong and at home on the court which is something we haven’t seen this year.
It was one of those performances where you say if you could bottle it then it would be great.
Role on 24 hours or so and he brings his A game out again.
7-5 6-3 victory against Diego Schwartzman ended the Argentines slim hopes of making the World Tour Finals in London.
Kyle said on court after that “winning is the best medicine” and it is good to see him playing well this week.
He barely put a foot wrong, there wasn’t a stumble and didn’t face a break point in the entire match.
Next up for him is Novak Djokovic and I wouldn’t rule him out causing an upset on Centre Court tomorrow.
Novak looked off the boil, he looked frustrated and his shot making was just all over the place.
Moutet had opportunities and it will feel like one of those matches that he could have won serving for the set but tried to be a bit flashy.
Edmund has beaten Djokovic before and for their sixth meeting tomorrow it is the four time former champion who must improve as today wasn’t up to standard and a better opponent would have seen him off.
