Kyle Edmund through to European Open last eight as Johanna Konta makes Kremlin Cup semi-final

Kyle Edmund swept into the European Open quarter-finals with a crushing straight-sets victory over Albert Ramos-Vinolas.

The British number one dispatched the Spaniard 6-0 6-2 in just 55 minutes in Antwerp, booking a last-eight clash with Belarus’ Ilya Ivashka.

World number 15 Edmund extended his recent winning run with a dominant performance, seeing off the 30-year-old with few problems.

Edmund needed just 20 minutes to claim the first set, and hardly relented after that, storming to victory inside the hour-mark.

Cameron Norrie was narrowly beaten in the last 16 by Diego Schwartzman.

The British number two lost in three tight sets 7-6 (7/1) 6-7 (3/7) 7-5 in two hours and 34 minutes.

Down a break in the deciding set, Norrie fought back from 4-2 down to lead 5-4 but Schwartzman got the break of serve back before closing out the match.

Johanna Konta is through to the semi-finals of the Kremlin Cup after a 6-2 2-6 7-6 (7-2) victory against Aliaksandra Sasnovich.
