Tennis: U.S. Open

Kyle Edmund had his moments against Novak Djokovic in the fourth round of the US Open, but they were too few and and too short.

Tara Moore, the last of six home players in the draw, was defeated by the veteran Svetlana Kuznetsova in a rollercoaster encounter 6-1, 2-6, 6-3.

A heartwarming tennis “bromance” for the ages.
