Kyle Edmund captured his first ATP World Tour title on Sunday in dramatic fashion, defeating Frenchman Gael Monfils 3-6, 7-6(2), 7-6(4) to win the European Open in Antwerp.
If there was any doubt that the moment meant a lot to the British No. 1, Edmund broke down into tears as he walked over to celebrate with his team after crushing a forehand winner down the line to clinch his victory. Monfils won four more points than Edmund in the championship match, but it was the 23-year-old who came away with the victory.
“I’m obviously very happy. A lot of hard work goes into this. So it’s just emotional,” Edmund said. “You always remember this one. Gael made me work for it today, that’s for sure, so credit to him. I’m just so happy.”

 A. Krajicek (USA) / R. Ram (USA) d  M. Mirnyi (BLR) / P. Oswald (AUT) 76(4) 64
Karen Khachanov ended a nine-year title drought for Russian players at the VTB Kremlin Cup in Moscow, cruising past Adrian Mannarino 6-2, 6-2 on Sunday to capture his third ATP World Tour title.
It is the 22-year-old’s second tour-level victory of the season, as he also triumphed at Marseille in February. Khachanov will overtake the player he beat in the Moscow semi-finals, Daniil Medvedev, as the No. 1 Russian in the ATP Rankings on Monday.
“[Winning in Russia] was one of the dreams I had when I was a kid,” said Khachanov. “Coming here [as a kid] I was asking top Russian players for autographs and dreaming one day to become a champion here. Today is the day and I am really happy. These are memories I will always keep in my head.”
