Over the course of the next couple of weeks 256 players will battle for the Australian Open titles. Out of the 256, 6 of them are Brits so who is playing down under? Kyle Edmund v Dusan Lajovic Kyle had a good week in Hobart making the quarter finals before losing to John Isner in a match where he played the better tennis. The issue for Kyle who is of course a former Australian Open semi-finalist is that Dusan Lajovic is in very good form right now. I would have to say one of the most valuable players during the … Continue reading Brit’s in Melbourne, how will the seven singles players get on?

Coming into your last tournament of the year on the back of eight straight defeats and potentially finishing the year outside the top 80 was a scary prospect for Kyle Edmund but the Brit has looked so invested in his opening two matches at the Paris Masters. Tuesday saw an impressive 6-4 6-3 win against Ricardas Berankis who came through qualifying. The Brit looked strong and at home on the court which is something we haven’t seen this year. It was one of those performances where you say if you could bottle it then it would be great. Role on … Continue reading Edmund see’s off Schwartzman and you wouldn’t rule him out against an unconvincing Djokovic!
There hasn’t been a time for a while where we could say Kyle Edmund is through to round two but at the last Masters 1000 event of the year he is! His recent run of form had seen him drop down to 75 in the world struggling for wins and confidence in a period which saw him split from his coach Mark Hilton.

Following a career high of 14 in the world twelve months ago this has not been the season Kyle Edmund would have hoped for. I think it’s fair to say this is now in the ‘save you season’ stage following a difficult year. Kyle began his year with a withdrawal from Melbourne and missed the next couple of months with an injury. The Brit came back to tennis but on the challenger circuit to begin with at Indian Wells and won the event winning against Andrey Rublev in the final. This was meant to be the kickstarter that gets the … Continue reading How a challenger at Indian Wells was meant to kickstart Kyle Edmund’s season but he hasn’t got out of first gear!
