Kyle Edmund pays tribute to his retiring coach Fredrik Rosengren
Kyle Edmund says he will be “forever grateful” to Fredrik Rosengren following the Swede’s retirement.
British No 1 Edmund revealed on Twitter on Wednesday that Rosengren is retiring from the ATP Tour to spend more time with his family.
The two started working together in 2017 and during their time together Edmund reached the Australian Open semi-final in 2018, became the British No 1 and also won his first singles title at the European Open in Antwerp.
“You’ve been an integral part of the team over the last year and a half and together we’ve reached a top 15 ranking, a Grand Slam semi-final and won a title in Antwerp in October. I will be forever grateful, enjoy retirement!,” he wrote.
Sad to announce Fidde is retiring from the tour.

Edmund is yet to confirm if he will replace Rosengren or if Englishman Mark Hilton be his only coach for the remainder of the season.
