Kyle Edmund ready for Queen’s challenge despite tough Stefanos Tstsipas draw

Kyle Edmund unhappy PA

Kyle Edmund says he is not phased at all by drawing Stefanos Tsitsipas in the first round at Queen’s, insisting all the pressure is on the young Greek star.

Tsitsipas, the world number six, is the top seed at the tournament after enjoying a stellar year so far.

By comparison, Edmund is returning from injury after a knee problem forced him out of the French Open.

However, Edmund is not worried about any of that.

“It’s obviously tough in terms of he’s played a lot, and won a lot, this year but at the same time it’s almost a very ideal situation where there’s no pressure on me to do well. Almost everything is on him.

“I’m not expected to win or anything like that and I get support so there are positives.

“At the same time it’s a tough match but they are all tough matches here.

“The nature of the tournament is so strong you very rarely get a first round where it’s like, ‘ooh, nice warm-up’ or anything like that. They’re all quite tough.”
