Edmund, Seppi ease into New York Open final

Edmund, Seppi ease into New York Open final

Britain's Kyle Edmund found a second gear in the last game of the match to book his spot in Sunday's final of the New York Open where he will face Italy's Andreas Seppi.

In the second set, Edmund continued to apply pressure in return games while remaining flawless on serve. But with Seppi serving at 5-6, Edmund raised his level just in time to draw the first blood. "I've kept improving and learning with each match".

First, there was a five-match losing streak, and later things got even worse for Kyle Edmund.

The 25-year-old won the first five games as he eased through the first set.

He then raced into a 3-0 lead in the second set by breaking Seppi in the second game.

The Sara Ali Khan and Kartik Aaryan starrer seems to have been marred by the mixed reviews it received upon its release. Directed by Imtiaz Ali, the flick also features Randeep Hooda and Arushi Sharma in significant roles.

"There's a lot hard work throughout the year, a lot of ups and downs that you don't see behind the scenes", said Edmund.

The British eighth seed needed just 71 minutes to brush past Kecmanovic, converting three of seven break points.

Ruud's win means he will become Norway's highest ranked male player ever, taking the record from his dad Christian, who reached 39th in the world in 1995. "So it's tough, but the way I've been playing I knew I would have opportunities, especially with more forehands, to get into points".

The 37-year-old Seppi was playing in his 10th career title, seeking a fourth crown.

Reilly Opelka, the 2019 singles champion, lost with partner Steve Johnson in the doubles final to Dominic Inglot and Aisam-Ul-Haq Qureshi, 7-6 (5), 7-6 (6).
