Kyle Edmund’s impressive winning streak came to an end at the hands of Spain’s Fernando Verdasco in the second round of the Erste Bank open in Vienna.
Verdasco was quick off the mark from the start, as the pair traded breaks with the Spaniard coming out on top. The pair battled competitively with Edmund struggling to convert three break points to level things up, Verdasco closing out the first set.
It was a more promising start for Edmund as he took an early lead at the start of the second set and time it was Verdasco’s turn to be thwarted as break points came and went for the Spaniard. Edmund might not have been able to take his chance to break for the match bur served out for it comfortably enough.
Edmund was put on the defensive once more having to fend off break points and the determined Spaniard got his chance late in the decider, breaking for a 5-3 lead, and serving out to love to send the Antwerp champions winning run at five matches in a row.
Edmund’s final tournament will be Paris. He is currently 13th in the Race to the Nitto ATP Finals and has a very outside chance of maybe making it as an alternate although he has indicated he may not take it in favour of having a full off-season rest and training block.
The ATP Paris Masters 1000 stakes place between 29 October to 4 November.
