Kyle Edmund heads into the US Open on the back of a mixed showing at the hard court American series of tournaments.
Edmund has suffered successive opening round defeats in Montreal and Cincinnati against David Ferrer and Joao Sousa but did enjoy a run to the semi-finals in Atlanta last month.
The 22-year-old British No 2 has made good progression into the world's top 50 and has become a regular fixture at the Grand Slams.
After making his first appearance in the main draw at the US Open last year, he made a superb run to the fourth round of the tournament before losing out to Novak Djokovic.
This year, Edmund has reached the quarter-finals in Brisbane and Delray Beach while his three-set defeat to Rafael Nadal in Monte Carlo was testament to his growing confidence on the surface and against the world's best players.
Edmund went on to reach the third round of the French Open, while he will be hoping to improve on his second round performance at Wimbledon last month.
