Kyle Edmund, the first tennis player in Britain, was delighted to play on clay in Roland Garros after he beat Australian Alex De Minaur 6-2, 6-4, 6-3 to reach the second round in a row in the French Open.
Edmund, who has British hopes of a Wimbledon achievement, has a convincing victory against a rival who failed to deal with the British player and made many easy mistakes.
Edmond, 16, was calmly calm to settle the game.
“I was very happy with my ability to control the rhythm of the game. The control was excellent … the transmission was good. You know that when I come forward, I do not back down,” he told reporters.
The young South African-born has developed significantly over the past five months, surpassing Novak Djokovic and David Juveen to reach the quarter-finals in Madrid this month and the top 20 in the rankings.
Kyle Edmund took the lead in March from Andy Murray, who was out of action because of a thigh injury since Wimbledon last year.
Edmund rose to 17th place in the ATP rankings last week, the highest position in his career after reaching the third round of the Italian Open.
“I’m trying to improve more centres in the rankings, and it’s great to be the first player in Britain, but that does not change anything,” said Edmund.
