Kyle Edmund determined to play despite ‘a few niggles’
His body may be hurting, but Kyle Edmund says his “intention is to play” in this weekend’s Davis Cup tie.
Great Britain will take on Spain in the first-round of the 2018 Davis Cup, but Edmund is not yet 100% after struggling with a hip problem during his Australian Open semi-final defeat to Marin Cilic.
Despite the injury, he travelled with the team to Marbella.
“My body has a few niggles and I’m taking it one day at a time,” the 23-year-old said.
“The transition from any surface to clay is not an easy one. My intention is to play as I love Davis Cup and representing my country.”
Cameron Norrie, Liam Broady, and doubles duo Jamie Murray and Dom Inglot are the other members of the squad and captain Liam Smith is adopting a wait and see policy.
“Hopefully he can play but if he doesn’t it gives younger players an opportunity to go and get a great experience,” he said.
“We’re just going to wait and see how he wakes up on Thursday morning.
“If he feels good we’ll discuss it, if not others will get an opportunity.”
