Murray v Edmund: Highlights
Andy Murray’s return to the sharp end of tennis continues on Thursday night, live on Sky Sports Arena from 9.30pm.
Murray meets Romania’s Marius Copil in the third round of the Citi Open in Washington, 24 hours after beating his successor as the British No 1, Kyle Edmund.
Three-time Grand Slam winner Murray entered the week ranked at No 832 in the world owing to the hip injury that has plagued him since last year’s Wimbledon.
But beating Edmund on Wednesday in three sets, in just his fifth match of 2018, represents Murray’s best moment since his injury nightmare began.
