Kyle Edmund could be a Grand Slam champion – Pat Cash

Kyle Edmund at Wimbledon

British number one Kyle Edmund is being tipped to go to the very top of the game by former Wimbledon champion Pat Cash.

Edmund is currently enjoying a career-high ranking of 17 in the world and reached his first major semi-final at the Australian Open in January.

Cash, who lifted the Wimbledon trophy in 1987, claims that the 23-year-old has all the tools to be able to reach the pinnacle of the sport.

Speaking to the BBC, he said: “I think he (Edmund) will be a top-five player. There is no doubt he will be a top-ten in my mind.

“He has all the aspects that you need, he is very determined, he is very focused, he doesn’t get flustered. That’s what I like about him.”

Cash went as far as suggesting that we could perhaps see Edmund climbing into the stands at SW19 in the future, a tradition originated by the Australian 31 years ago.

He continued: “Some guys are really good but then they get under pressure – they fall apart.

“He’s kind of got it all… I see him challenging for (Grand) Slams.”
