Kyle Edmund collected his second career title down Andreas Seppi 7-5, 6-1 in the Sunday final at the New York Open.
”There’s a lot hard work throughout the year, a lot of ups and downs that you don’t see behind the scenes. To win this title means a lot to me,” Edmund said following his first title since 2018 Antwerp.
The Brit lost just one set though only faced one player in the Top 80 (Kecmanovic in the SFs) en route.
The 37-year-old Seppi was playing in his 10th career title, seeking a fourth crown.
”He played a good match today and he deserved to win,” Seppi said. “I enjoyed my time on this court and played some good matches this week. I’ll take the positives from here and move forward.”
No Top 5 seeds made the semifinals as upsets created havoc in the draw.
