Kyle Edmund gives update on his fitness with Wimbledon looming large
Kyle Edmund has given an update on his fitness ahead of Wimbledon, revealing that he is ‘feeling good’ about his knee injury.
The British number one was forced to withdraw from the French Open with the injury and it appeared to hamper him at Queen’s too, where he lost in the first round to Stefanos Tsitsipas.
He, though, says the injury is starting to feel better ahead of his last pre-Wimbledon warm-up at Eastbourne.
“It’s a lot more positive since Queens,” Edmund told Sky Sports. “I’ve been practicing a lot more.
“When I came off the court at Queen’s, I felt a bit slow and sluggish – not as sharp as I wanted to be.
“I am feeling good about my game physically. Practice is one thing but doing it in a match is somewhere where you can really see and put it to the test.
“You are going there (Wimbledon) wanting to win every match, that is natural.
“That is all I focus on really – and hopefully I get some matches this week (at Eastbourne).”
