MEET KYLE EDMUND
Like Tim Henman before him, Edmund is no teenage prodigy, but slowly, surely he is becoming a tennis force. The 20-year-old from Beverley, England started playing the sport aged 10. While his sister Kelly took swimming lessons, he would swing a racquet at their local tennis club. Edmund first came to prominence when he helped a Great Britain junior Davis Cup team, coached by Greg Rusedski, to victory in Mexico in 2011. Rusedski spoke with great gusto about the young man’s potential. This year, he broke into the World’s Top 100 for the first time, qualifying at the first two Grand Slams of the year, and earned a call up to the Davis Cup final squad. A fan of Liverpool football club who loves fast cars and would have liked to have been a Formula 1 driver if not a tennis player, Edmund is going places, one step at a time.
‘To win that amount of money in one night was amazing. For a young player like me it is brilliant because I was able to invest in my team, and in my career generally.’
TIE BREAK STRENGTHS
At 20, he is by far the youngest man in the draw. He is quick, strong and powerful.
THE ‘UNKNOWN’ FACTOR
He has played so few tie-breaks in his career, and none against any of the players that he will be up against in Tie Break Tens.
He possesses a sledgehammer serve and forehand which might be able to knock his opponents off the court if he gets on a roll.
