Kyle Edmund [13] v Lloyd Harris | Edmund leads H2H 1-0

While the race for the British No. 2 changed hands last week, as Dan Evans overtook Cameron Norrie in Atlanta, British No. 1 Kyle Edmund comes into the Citi Open as the No. 13 seed. It has been an up and down year for the Brit. His coach retired, he took time out to settle an injury and it looked as though things were coming together for him with a seven-match winning run, but since Miami it was a different story and it was not until Eastbourne, before Edmund won back to back matches, before a very disappointing exit at Wimbledon having been in the clear in the second round.

While there might be a bit of time for him to enjoy his status as the British No. 1 you have to feel that he needs to find his feet quickly in the US. He plays Lloyd Harris, and he beat him during his purple patch earlier in the year.

Lucky for Edmund, Harris has spent a lot of time this year down in the lower Challenger circuit, but as a result has had a chance to get his confidence up – certainly enough to take a set off Roger Federer in the first round at Wimbledon!

Harris plays an aggressive game, likes to come forward and will just give it is all out there as he really has nothing to lose. Edmund went through a spell last year of losing matches he really ought to be winning, and blew away a commanding lead at Wimbledon after picking up a groin injury, so will really mneed to remain focused.

On paper, Edmund’s serve/forehand one-two punch combo should serve him well against the younger, more inexperienced player.

Prediction: Edmund in straight sets.
