Edmund crashes out in Miami

Roger Federer shows off his effortless skills

Haase stamped his authority on the first-round match from the off by breaking Edmund’s serve in the opening game.

Edmund did show flashes of the skill that has people predicting a positive future in the game for him but Haase broke again on his way to winning the first set six games to two.

The second set followed a similar pattern to the first as Haase took control with an early break of serve.

And Haase closed out the set six-two to make it through to the second round and knock the British No 3 out of the prestigious tournament in the sweltering Florida heat.
