Edmund has knee surgery

Kyle Edmund has undergone knee surgery in an attempt to revive his career which has been on a downward spiral for the past two years.

The recovery is going well, and I hope to be back on court as soon as possible Kyle Edmund

The former British No.1 who reached a career high of 14 in October 2018, has had a ‘small procedure’ to rectify a long-standing problem which has in fact side-lined him these past six months.

The British number three, world No 69, has not played a match since the ATP tournament in Vienna last October.

Edmund said: “I had a small procedure on my knee. I’m currently rehabbing. The recovery is going well, and I hope to be back on court as soon as possible.”

The problem first surfaced at the end of a 2018 season that saw him reach the Australian Open semi-finals, break into the world’s top 20 and win his maiden ATP title at the European Open.

He struggled at the start of the following year and then retired during his second-round match at the French Open.

The 26-year-old was the star of Britain’s Davis Cup finals campaign in November 2019, as Leon Smith’s team lost to eventual winners Spain in the last four, and he won his second ATP title in New York last February.

But the problem slowly got worse and he ended last season with a run of five straight defeats.
