Kyle is into the 3rd round with a similar win to his opener - this time he won 6-1, 5-7, 6-3.

Will face Nishioka or Rubin in the 3rd round. Too highly rated youngsters, particularly Nishioka who is one of the highest ranked juniors on tour. He and Kyle faced off a couple of months back in Florida where Kyle won 6-3, 6-1 en route to the title there.

Will have a day off now before his next match.

Rubin thrashed Nishioka in the last round; he's a very good clay-court player. Great win for Kyle.

Doesn't get any easier. He, Quinzi, Zverev and Garin are the four most accomplished juniors on the main tour. And three of them are in the bottom section!

Edmund faces 16yo Zverev (who has cruised through all his matches - beat Bambridge last year too) and Quinzi takes on world #2 Milojevic. In top half Coric (won Bournemouth Futures not long ago) takes on Nunez (took out Kyrgios' conqueror) and Garin or Djere (Garin up 5-2 in 3rd; Djere is junior #3) will play Hemery or Couacaud (also won a Futures recently).

(13) Nunez v (6) Coric
Garin/(3) Djere v Hemery/Couacaud
(5) Edmund v (4) Zverev
(6) Quinzi v (2) Milojevic

I think Quinzi will probably make the final from the bottom half - he's something of a clay specialist, to the point where fans are concerned about his ability on other surfaces. Have a feeling Zverev will end Kyle's run too, but fingers crossed. Garin is my tip to make the final from top half. Another very accomplished clay player.

Zverev won 6-2, 5-7, 6-0. The German is two years younger than Kyle, and 1-2 years younger than most of the other top juniors. A huge talent.

Kyle DID win his doubles match though, with partner Silva (they won the US doubles together last year), so they're into the SFs.

Kyle now has a WC into Queens next week. Will be the biggest stage he's played on.

Kyle and Frederico have just started their doubles final. Their opponents are the Chileans Garin and Jarry - Garin just won the Boys singles, thrashing Zverev 4&1. Jarry is apparently verging on 7 feet tall.

Kyle and partner are up an early break.

Kyle and Frederico claim the title with a 3&3 win. Smile

Kyle becomes first ever Brit to win a doubles title at Roland Garros. He and Silva are now 10-0 together, having won the USO last year.

After a 6-4, 7-6 loss to Zemlja at Queens (cue the Daily Mail reporting that Edmund 'crashed' out...) Kyle got a WC into Eastbourne...

And today beat the world #81 Kenny De Schepper 6-4, 6-4 for his biggest career scalp and first win on the ATP tour. De Schepper is a huge server and top grass player. Fantastic result for Kyle.

Will pick up a career-best 20 points for the win - taking him into the top 400 for the first time in the 380s on Monday. Although he is defending 8 points from Wimbledon qualies next year, but they don't come off until after Wimbledon.

Meant to face Gilles Simon next, but Simon was earlier helped off the training courts with a suspected tendon injury. Could well be the usual case of fear-mongering, but looked quite serious. If Simon pulls out, I think Kyle will face a lucky loser (as Simon had a bye in the first round).

Kyle also said that he'd donate half his money from first round at Eastbourne to Royal Marsden

^ That's really kind of him.  It's not like he's yet making loads.

It's a really commendable thing to do, but as mentioned by a bloke who knows Kyle well (often goes to his games), it is the sort thing you'd expect from him. His exact words:

'It is a tremendous gesture but highly unsurprising and exactly the sort of gesture I would expect from someone so mature for his age.'

Hope I get to see at some time during Wimbledon. Think Sue Barker said they'd be increasing Beeb's coverage.
