Kyle Edmund could be a Grand Slam champion – Pat Cash
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.”
