• Edmund did not face a single break point
And then there was one. Not since 2007 has a British player failed to make the second week of Wimbledon but after Johanna Konta and Katie Boulter’s departures on Thursday the nation’s hopes sit solely on Kyle Edmund’s broad shoulders and gunslinger forehand.
Edmund was competent enough against the American qualifier Bradley Klahn, winning in 6-4, 7-6 (0), 6-2 in a shade under two hours but he will have to step up several levels against Novak Djokovic, who he faces in the third round on Centre Court on Saturday.
