British tennis star Kyle Edmund was satisfied with the way he performed against Philipp Kohlschreiber as he put Great Britain in charge against Gernany at the Davis Cup Finals. Edmund, ranked at No. 69 in the world, delivered a big performance in the opening rubber of the tie as he saw off the experienced German 6-3 7-5 in the opening rubber of the quarterfinal tie.
The Briton won the opening set after earning the first break of the match in the sixth game and facing no break points in the set. Kohlschreiber got off to an early 3-1 second set lead but failed to hold on to his serve as Edmund claimed breaks in the fifth and 12th game to get the job done in two sets.
"I thought my level today was good,” Edmund said, per the Davis Cup Finals website. “Sometimes when you play first, you’re running on adrenaline, pumped to be out there, and as the days go by the challenge is to keep that consistent. I think I did that – my mentality, my consistency, and my game are in a good place."
