Kyle Edmund’s 2019 French Open campaign came to an abrupt end in the second round as he retired midway through his clash against Pablo Cuevas.
The British No 1 required more than four hours to beat Frenchman Jeremy Chardy in the first round with the match taking place over two days after it was suspended late on Monday due to bad weather.
And he was already feeling under the weather in that match as he battled with illness and injury and things didn’t really improve ahead of the clash against Cuevas.
He battled his way through the first two and a bit sets on Thursday and called for the trainer due to a problem with his knee while 7-6 (7-3), 6-3, 2-1 down, but left the court without treatment.
Fourth seed Dominic Thiem advanced, but he didn’t have it all his own way as he required four sets and two hours and 30 minutes to beat Alexander Bublik.
The 2018 Roland Garros runner-up also found himself 2-5 down in the fourth set, but battled back to win a 6-3, 6-7(6), 6-3, 7-5.
