Murray vs Edmund
Second round in Washington. Two British players against each other, Murray vs Edmund.
This is their 4th mutual meeting while Murray leads 2-1. But the last time Edmund has won 2-0 (6-4/6-4). It was this season in Eastbourne (grass). That was one of early matches since Murray's returning from injury. It was clear that he wasn't yet ready back then. Still, probably he isn't on the required level either now but I still think this time we will see much bigger 'fight' than last time.
In first round here Murray was better from McDonald in three sets. Expected victory I would say but also expected lot of ups and down for Murray. He would need much better tennis to win today. I think he will play better but it is hard to say if that would be enough for victory.
Odds on Andy Murray are tempting but I am going with IMO much safer option and that is over the totals.
What is going in favor of Murray is that this is going to be first match for Edmund after Wimbledon.
IMO this will be three sets or two very close sets.
