  1. Thanks and goodnight

    That's all from me today. A disappointing day for Kyle Edmund but it's the big one next up for him - Wimbledon.

    Bring it on!

  2. 'Kyle was the better player'

    Kyle Edmund has made a speedy exit but Taylor Fritz has given an on-court interview after his 7-6 (10-8) 6-3 victory.

    The American said: "Kyle was the better player for a lot of of the match but I won the big points.

    "It was really scrappy, I wasn't hitting the big shots like I normally do but luckily I came through.

    "Ever since my first final when I was 18, I've been wanting a tour title so badly, so i just want to capitalise on this chance."

    Edmund 6-7 (8-10) 3-5 Fritz

    "Come on, come on" Edmund shouts at himself as he takes the first point on Fritz's serve.

    He goes 30-0 up with a lovely forehand from mid-court (just one "come on" that time) but Fritz pulls back to level as a frustrated Edmund flies one into the net.

    Match point for Fritz...

  5. Post update

    Edmund 6-7 (8-10) 3-5 Fritz*

    Edmund is pushing, pushing, pushing Fritz towards the back as he goes 40-0 up with ease, and then takes the game. Fritz just wanted that game over.

  6. Post update

    Edmund* 6-7 (8-10) 2-5 Fritz

    Advantage Fritz, but then he pulls it wide. He gets the advantage again and takes it as Edmund slams a shot into the net.

    Win one more game and Fritz is in the final. Edmund's head is down.

    Kyle Edmund
  7. Post update

    A huge roar as Edmund chips the ball over the net and Fritz completely misinterprets its bounce. The American is left exasperated. How did that happen?

    Edmund gets pulled out of position as Fritz restores the scores to 15-15. At game point, he scuppers his first serve and Edmund responds on the second, going on take it to deuce with some stunning aggressive play.

    It's then advantage Edmund with Fritz ending up sat on the grass. But a big gust of wind across the court sees him fluff his chance and Fritz makes amends by taking advantage himself. AGAIN, Edmund levels it with an outrageous backhand drop shot.

    Back to deuce we go...

    Kyle Edmund
  8. Post update

    Edmund 6-7 (8-10) 2-4 Fritz*

    Fritz takes the early lead on Edmund's serve as he sends the Brit the wrong way at the net but Edmund quickly levels at 15-15.

    At 30-15, Edmund goes in nice and tight towards the net after sending Fritz running before seeing the game out.

    He's still in this one, but he needs a break, sharpish.

  9. Post update

    In case you were wondering, I'm Andy Murray, apparently.

    "If there is a winner, you want to be it. And you don't mind showing how much it means."

    It knows me so well...

  10. Kyrgios or Murray? Williams or Osaka?

    Got a spare few minutes tonight? Why not do something productive with that time...A QUIZ!

    Which Wimbledon tennis player are you?

  11. Post update

    Edmund* 6-7 (8-10) 1-4 Fritz

    Edmund's getting annoyed as this one looks to be moving away from him.

    Excellent serving from Fritz sees him wrap up that game 40-15 with ease.

    Taylor Fritz
  12. Post update

    Edmund 6-7 (8-10) 1-3 Fritz*

    Edmund looks a little bit flat after that start to the set but he hits a lovely forehand winner to go 30-15 up, much to the delight of the crowd. That should give him a boost.

    He takes the game as a Fritz returns falls into the net. Edmund's up and running in this set.

  13. Post update

    Edmund* 6-7 (8-10) 0-3 Fritz

    Edmund looked to be responding perfectly to having his serve broken as he raced into a 40-0 lead. But he fails to take advantage of two break points of his own as Fritz gets back into it.

    Deuce, Edmund advantage, deuce, advantage Fritz, game Fritz.

    It's looking good for an all-American final. It's not looking good for Kyle Edmund.

  14. Edmund broken

    Edmund 6-7 (8-10) 0-2 Fritz*

    Not the start Edmund would have wanted to that service game as Fritz takes a 30-0 lead but Edmund strikes back with an ace.

    But Fritz moves to break point, shooting a backhand cross court, and he takes it. Fritz breaks Edmund. That could be decisive.

    Kyle Edmund
  15. Post update

    Edmund* 6-7 (8-10) 0-1 Fritz

    Fritz goes 30-0 up in the first game of this second set but Edmund responds with a lovely, lovely cross-court backhand with Fritz at the net. How did he do that? Stunning - the crowd loved that one.

    Edmund claws it back to deuce, taking his chances at the net, and then takes break point. Back to deuce as Fritz brings out a big serve.

    The American then loses advantage himself, but gets it back as an Edmund forehand strikes the net. He takes his chance this time.

  16. Post update

    As a reminder, American Sam Querrey awaits the winner of this match following his 6-3 6-7 (4-7) 6-3 victory over Italy's Thomas Fabbiano in the first semi-final of the day.

  17. Game and first set Fritz

    Edmund 6-7 (8-10) Fritz

    Some 47 minutes later, and it's Fritz who takes the first set. He's one step closer to a second career final.

    Edmund will not be a happy bunny. How can he respond?

    Taylor Fritz
  18. Post update

    On his fourth set point, Edmund looks to have sealed it but it's called out! Is he going to challenge it? No.

    He's left flustered as Fritz moves to set point, but the American scuppers his chance, sending an Edmund serve wide.

    Is anything going to split these two?

  19. Tie-break trouble

    Edmund 6-6 Fritz

    Tie-break time. A gentle backhand drop shot gives Edmund the initial lead but Fritz levels. Edmund is so animated out there, he wants this badly.

    He misses the chance to go 3-1 up as a sure point clips the net and goes out. Eventually, he pushes Fritz further and further behind the back line and he's quietly ecstatic as he goes 5-3 and then 6-3 up with some intelligent play at the net.

    Fritz creeps back to 6-5, and then it's 6-6 as Edmund double-faults. Not a good time to do that, Kyle...

    Kyle Edmund
  20. Post update

    Edmund* 6-6 Fritz

    Fritz sends Edmund sprinting across court with a cute volley at the net but the Brit just misses it while just managing to stay on his feet.

    A huge roar from the Eastbourne crowd mirrors Edmund's growing vocals. A loud shout of "COME ON" from the Yorkshireman as he moves to set point.

    He scuppers that chance though as it goes to deuce and Fritz takes the advantage with a cracking serve. He holds - will Edmund come to rue that missed opportunity?
