Kyle Edmund has suffered a three-set defeat to Milos Raonic in the quarter-finals of the Delray Beach Open.
The British number three had been hoping to record the biggest win of his career against the world number four, but the big-serving Canadian proved too strong in a 4-6 6-3 6-4 victory.
Edmund would have been delighted with his start to the match as he recorded the only break of serve to move closer to a place in the last four, and he was handling the pressure well in the second as he reached 3-3.
However, he dropped serve in the eighth game to effectively concede the set to Raonic, and he began the decider by losing his serve for a second successive time.
He remained within one break of the top seed but he was unable to create any break-point chances as Raonic set up a semi-final showdown with Juan Martin del Potro.topics from
