WATCH: Kyle Edmund predicts who will qualify for the ATP World Tour Finals
British No 1 Kyle Edmund has picked his eight players who will make it through to the end of season ATP World Tour Finals in London and he has been bold enough to pick himself in that elite list.
Edmund has found some form in recent weeks after a slow start to the season, but he is currently down in 70th place in the Race To London rankings, but he will leap up into the mid-30s in those rankings next week after his run to the fourth round of the ATP Masters 1000 event in Miami this week.
Edmund will be aiming to put together a solid clay- and grass-court season to push himself up the rankings and he is clearly planning to make his first appearances at the end of season finals after posting this video message.
He has backed Kei Nishikori and Stefanos Tsitsipas to join a familiar group of names competing at the 02 Arena in London, with the ATP Race to London likely to look something like this when the rankings are updated on Monday:
1. Novak Djokovic
2. Roger Federer
3. Rafael Nadal
5. Dominic Thiem
6. John Isner
7. Gael Monfils
8. Daniil Medvedev
9. Roberto Bautista Agut
10. Kei Nishikori
