Edmund outlasts Basilashvili

Kyle Edmund of Britain shakes hands with Nikoloz Basilashvili of Georgia after Edmund won their match.

Edmund made a poor start and was broken in his first service game but came back after receiving treatment on his back to break back and, going for his shots, ran away with the tiebreak to seal the set with a thumping forehand return.

Basilashvili made it seven games in a row before Edmund got back on the board and although the world number 49 got the set back on serve, another errant forehand gave him a 2-1 lead.
