Edmund sur­vives on rain-dis­rupted day

Muscat Daily - - SPORTS -

Auck­land, New Zealand - Bri­tain's Kyle Edmund drew on his ex­pe­ri­ence with English play­ing con­di­tions to pro­duce a gritty three-set win over Ale­jan­dro Davi­dovich Fok­ina on a raindis­rupted sec­ond day of the ATP Auck­land Clas­sic on Tues­day.

The play­ers started warm­ing up at mid­day as sched­uled and Edmund com­pleted his 6-2, 4-6, 6-3 vic­tory nearly seven and a half hours later although there was less than two hours play­ing time. In the only other match com­pleted dur­ing the day ses­sion, big serv­ing Cana­dian qual­i­fier Vasek Pospisil was too strong for 2017 Auck­land fi­nal­ist Joao Sousa win­ning 6-4, 6-2 in a re­peat of his straight sets vic­tory over the Por­tuguese in Shang­hai three months ago.
