Kyle Edmund is through to the quarter-finals of the boys' singles at the French Open for the second year in a row after a three-set win over America's Noah Rubin.

The 18-year-old from Beverley in East Yorkshire is regarded as Britain's brightest young talent and he is already in the top 500 in the men's rankings after winning two titles on the third tier Futures Tour.

Edmund has done it the hard way at Roland Garros this week, winning both his first two matches in three sets, and it was the same story on Wednesday.

Edmund won the first set and was an early break up in the second before Rubin fought back, but the British player forged ahead at the start of the third and kept his advantage to win 7-5 5-7 6-3, finishing with an ace.

In the quarter-finals, fifth seed Edmund will face 16-year-old German fourth seed Alexander Zverev as he aims to reach the semi-finals for the first time.
