Kyle Ed­mund’s good form con­tin­ued as he reached the sec­ond round of the Citi Open in Wash­ing­ton, but fel­low Bri­ton Heather Wat­son lost her open­ing match.

Bri­tish num­ber two Ed­mund, who reached the semi-fi­nals of the At­lanta Open last week, de­feated South Korea’s Hyeon Chung 6-3 6-1 in 57 min­utes.

The 22-year-old will now play num­ber four seed Grigor Dim­itrov.

Wat­son, mean­while, was beaten 7-6 (7-4), 7-6 (7-3) by Ro­ma­nia’s world num­ber 134 Pa­tri­cia Maria Tig.
