Novak Djokovic eased past Kyle Edmund in the Miami Open second round, cruising to a straight-sets win on Friday.

The world number one was, as expected, too good for the Brit, securing a 6-3 6-3 victory in 80 minutes at the ATP 1000 event.

Djokovic is a two-time defending champion in Miami and already has three titles this year, and he will take some stopping to deny him a fourth.

The 11-time grand-slam champion lost just nine points on his serve in the first set and that meant he was in control.

Djokovic broke for 2-1 in the second when Edmund sent a forehand into the base of the net after a game lasting almost 10 minutes.

Edmund hung in there but only until the ninth game, Djokovic converting his first match point when his opponent sent a backhand wide.

Awaiting Djokovic in the third round is Joao Sousa, who edged past Vasek Pospisil.
