Murray continued his progress at the Citi Open in Washington by beating Edmund in three sets in the second round – 7-6, 1-6, 6-4.
The two-time Wimbledon champion is looking to build up some form ahead of the final Grand Slam of the year – the US Open.
While he has dropped to below 800 in the world rankings, the Scot is hoping to get his career back on track after his injury problems.
Murray beat his long-term friend Edmund in the early hours of Thursday morning, but Murray didn’t find it too tricky facing his pal.
“It’s not too bad honestly,” he said.
“Some players you can find that difficult.
“Sometimes at the beginning of a match, it can be tricky, but once you get into it, it becomes another match.
“You work it out and find a way to win.
“We know each others games pretty well, so not laods of secrets.”
Murray also revealed he thinks he’s in a better state now fitness wise, adding: “I feel better than I did during the grass-court season, which is positive.
“So things are still getting better and I’ve lasted fairly well through two long matches here on a tough surface on the body so hopefully I can keep healing up from the matches and feeling better.”
Murray will face Romania’s Marius Copil in the last-16 of the Citi Open.
