London | Edmund brings season to a close

Kyle Edmund, seeded 13, has withdrawn from the Paris Masters and put an end to his hopes of going to the Nitto ATP Finals at least as an alternate which he was going to turn down anyway.

I will analyse what needs to be done and then make a decision Kyle Edmund

“If you take an alternate spot then your pre-season is shorter,” he told the Daily Mail, “you’re basically sitting on the sidelines while you could be taking a break and then getting ready for next year with the training. My thoughts are that I would rather train for next year than be an alternate.”

Having also suffered series if illnesses during the course of the year, the British No.1 will now take the opportunity to prepare for next season.

“It depends on what the doctors think but at the minute I’m feeling okay so we haven’t really had the need,’ Edmund said referring to his previous health problems, “I will analyse what needs to be done and then make a decision.

“There’s always that chance of having some medicine but it’s something I’ve not really gone into because if you take it you need to get permission it’s not something I really want to do because I have been feeling okay. If I continue to get ill in the future, then it’s something I will do.’

According to the BBC, Edmund underwent an MRI scan which revealed a small amount of fluid behind his left knee.

The 23-year-old made his debut in Paris last year when he was beaten in the second round by eventual champion Jack Sock.

Edmund, who captured his maiden ATP title two weeks ago in Antwerp, last played in Vienna last week where he lost to Fernando Verdasco in the round-of-16.
