Share via Email The 23-year-old Briton saved three break points in the deciding set to seal a 6-3, 2-6, 6-3 victory and set up a meeting with the eighth seed, David Goffin, in the last 16. Edmund made the ideal start with a break of serve in the opening game and, although Djokovic immediately hit back, Edmund broke twice more to take the first set.Djokovic looked to be getting back to somewhere near his best as he took the second set in style to set up a decider, but Edmund recovered from 0-40 down in the fifth game to remain in front and then claimed the decisive break before serving out for the match.“It was a great experience first of all to beat Novak, I’ve lost to him three times,” Edmund told Sky. “He’s a legend so your first match when you share the court is an experience but now, especially after reaching the semis of the Australian Open, it’s time to try and beat these guys and I was very pleased today how I managed my game, especially in the third set.“After Australia I got a little bit ill and didn’t have a great run of results until I reached my first final [in Morocco] so it’s nice to come out here and beat a top player like Novak. I knew rallying with him and trying to beat him at his own game I wasn’t going to win, so it was important to be expressive.”The win is likely to take Edmund, who has risen to British No 1 during the extended absence of Andy Murray, inside the world’s top 20 for the first time next week. “It was a goal of mine to get inside the top 20, there’s no reason why I couldn’t,” he said. “You have to set targets and I thought that was a very realistic target, so I’m pleased it’s happened. But you know the way the tennis world works, you reach a target but it doesn’t stop and you keep trying to get better.” PA Andy Murray will have to remodel his game again, whenever he returns Share on Twitter Support The Guardian Kevin Mitchell Read more Novak Djokovic Share on Facebook Reuse this contentlast_img read more
