Kyle Edmund: Tennis is fickle so no need to panic over poor form

Kyle Edmund has vowed to be rational over his declining form, saying he has every confidence it can turn around at any moment.

The British number one has had a wretched spring so far, winning just one match on clay in 2019.

However, he has insisted that overreactions are unlikely to help anything.

“Would it help to panic?” Edmund asked rhetorically after losing to Fabio Fognini in Madrid.

“You have to rationalise it. Our job is judged on wins and losses so you always like to win and when you’re not winning you’re thinking of ways to get better.

“Tennis is fickle, it can come and go, it doesn’t take much to turn it.

“I’m 24 years old, I’m not a junior where you start losing and your head goes down.

“You’ve got to be professional about your job. It’s not like I’m a bad tennis player.”
