Result: Kyle Edmund through to quarter-finals in Atlanta

British number two Kyle Edmund comes from behind to beat Peter Gojowczyk in the second round of the Atlanta Open.

Kyle Edmund has reached the quarter-finals of the Atlanta Open with a three-set victory over Peter Gojowczyk.

The British number two dropped the first set against the experienced German, but he fought back to run out a 2-6 6-4 7-5 winner.

The 22-year-old is defending a considerable chunk of ranking points during the American swing, and it appeared that he would miss out on a valuable win when being broken twice during a one-sided opener.

However, he benefited from a rain delay and was able to strike back late on in the second set to force a decider, before having more success on Gojowczyk's serve in the third.

A tie-break appeared likely when they reached 5-5, but Edmund was able to secure the pivotal break to claim the win in just over two hours.

Edmund will now meet top seed Jack Sock for a place in the last four.
