Kyle Edmund swept into the European Open quarter-finals with a crushing straight-sets victory over Albert Ramos-Vinolas.

The British number one dispatched the Spaniard 6-0 6-2 in just 55 minutes in Antwerp, to book a last-eight clash with Belarus’ Ilya Ivashka.

World number 15 Edmund extended his recent winning run with a dominant performance, seeing off the 30-year-old with precious few problems.

Edmund needed just 20 minutes to claim the first set 6-0, and hardly relented after that, to storm to victory inside an hour.
