Andy Murray believes the manner of his victory over Kyle Edmund at the Citi Open in Washington was just as important as the result. The former world number one prevailed 7-6, 1-6, 6-4 in the battle of the Brits to clinch the biggest win of his comeback from hip surgery. Murray, now 832nd in the world rankings, was encouraged by a more attacking display against his compatriot.

"It my best win since I started playing again," Murray said. "It's a great win for me. It'll give me more confidence going forward. It was much better, just in terms of the way I actually played the match. In the first match I basically spent the whole match defending, I was playing quite far behind the baseline. And that's not really how I want to be playing moving forward."
