French Open: Kyle Edmund through to third round but Heather Watson and Cameron Norrie crash out


British no.1 Kyle Edmund made it to the third round stage of the French Open for the second year running with a topsy-turvy win over Hungarian Marton Fucsovics.
Edmund, who is seeded 16th at Roland Garros needed four sets to get past the world no.45 in his 6-0 1-6 6-2 6-3 victory. 
However, there was no joy for the other British contingents in action as Cameron Norries resumed his second round clash with home favourite Lucas Pouille and suffered a 6-2 6-4 5-7 7-6 defeat. 
Meanwhile, Heather Watson put up a limp display in her 6-3 6-4 defeat to Belgian Elise Mertens. 
In a mixed day for British tennis, Edmund produced an impressive display against his opponent who went into the contest on the back of a six-game winning streak. 
However, Edmund raced out the blocks, winning the first set in just 27 minutes. 
Edmund had his own slump in the second set when he called the trainer for a problem with the index finger on his right racket hand, losing the first five games.
But the British number one responded well, quickly moving 3-0 ahead in the third, and went on to claim the victory in two hours and 16 minutes. 
Next up for Edmund is Italy's Fabio Fognini in the third round. 
But there was no such luck for Watson who won just two service games on her way to her loss to Mertens.
It was the sixth time Watson had reached the second round at Roland Garros, but she has still yet to advance any further.
Watson had breezed through her first-round match against France's Oceane Dodin, dropping just three games along the way. She also hit nine aces.
But the 26-year-old's serve deserted her this time, with five double-faults added to 37 unforced errors giving her a mountain to climb against anyone, let alone the 16th seed.
And Norrie didn't fare much better either after failing to complete what would have been a remarkable turnaround against Pouille. 
French number one Pouille led 2-1 overnight and served for the fourth set at 6-5 only for Norrie to hit back and force a tie-break.
But Pouille held his nerve and the 15th seed eventually prevailed and sent the 22-year-old packing.
