French Open 2012: Liam Broady & Kyle Edmund post wins

Liam Broady

Britain's Liam Broady advanced to round two of the French Open boys' singles with victory over Egypt's Karim Hossam.

Third seed Broady will next play Julien Cagnina of Belgium, while Kyle Edmund beat Maxime Tchoutakian of France 7-6 (7-5) 6-3 to reach the third round.

Luke Bambridge lost 6-0 6-4 to Australian top seed Luke Saville.

"I played really well," said Broady. "I had a very specific gameplan and executed it.

"At the moment I'm trying to get out of the Futures [the level below Challenger events], but the transition to the senior game is very hard. The game is much more serve-orientated.

"I'm trying to bulk up. I've done a month of fitness training and feel like it's paying off.

"The British people are overdue a good generation of British players and hopefully it's going to come. I don't see why me, Luke Bambridge, Kyle Edmund and Josh Ward-Hibbert can't all make it."
