British number one Kyle Edmund created a genteel performance to overcome Milos Raonic in straight sets and hit the fourth round of the Miami Open.

Edmund, 2-4, did not face a single breakpoint as Canada’s Raonic struggled with a back injury which needed physio and medication on court in the next set.

In blustery conditions, Edmund’s forehand was vital since he took among the three break points in a 6-4 6-4 triumph.

He now faces defending American winner John Isner in around four.

Isner defeated Spaniard Albert Ramos-Vinolas 7-5, 7-6(6) on Sunday.

“Isner can be actually a similar game up in you have to attempt to receive his function back,” Edmund said after his triumph over a person ranked eight positions above him.

“It’s more how heavy his function is and how tough it’s to read. I don’t have anything to lose and have to present my very best. I’m feeling good.

“Nowadays it was catchy circumstances, windy and you mightn’t predict anything. To be able to break him in each set was huge.”
