Kyle Edmund tumbled out of the Citi Open in Washington at the hands of German lucky loser Peter Gojowczyk.

The 24-year-old's disappointing summer continued with a three-set defeat in the quarter-finals.

Edmund, currently ranked 34 in the world, dropped his serve in the third game as Gojowczyk took an early grip on proceedings.

The British number one, who has struggled with a knee problem in recent months, failed to convert a break point for 3-3 with Gojowczyk pulling out big serves at the big moments.

Some solid hitting from Gojowczyk, ranked 122, then fashioned a set point on the Edmund serve and a clean winner wrapped it up in just 32 minutes.

Unforced errors had cost Edmund dearly, but he came out pumped up for the second set and secured a break for 3-2 before confidently serving it out.

However, Edmund's level dipped in the decider as Gojowczyk clinched another early break.

Edmund saved four match points but netted the fifth as Gojowczyk ran out 6-3 4-6 6-3 winner.
