Kyle Edmund set for longer spell on the sidelines after undergoing ‘small procedure’
Kyle Edmund’s injury enforced absence is set to continue for several more weeks after the former British No 1 underwent a “small” operation on his knee.
The world No 69 has not played competitive tennis for six months with his last match a defeat in qualifying at the Vienna Open in October 2020.
He pulled out of the Australian Open at the start of the year as he wanted to give his knee more time to recover, but the extra rest has not helped.
As a result he underwent a “small procedure” in Switzerland at the end of the March with Dr Roland Biedert, who has operated on Roger Federer, Stan Wawrinka and Juan Martin del Potro, performing the surgery.
“I had a small procedure on my knee. I’m currently rehabbing,” Edmund said. “The recovery is going well and I hope to be back on court as soon as possible.”
The 26-year-old, who reached as high of No 14 in the ATP Rankings in 2018, is expected to miss the French Open while it remains to be seen if he will be fit for Wimbledon, which starts on June 28.
