London | Kyle Edmund tells Jaguar he is “ready for pain” in his quest to be World No. 1

British no.1, Kyle Edmund, has today stated his ambition to become the best tennis player in the world as he prepares to take the Wimbledon Championships by storm next week.

I have developed a belief that there is no one I can’t beat and I’m at a stage now where I do not fear anyone. Kyle Edmund

Edmund has shot up through the rankings this year and believes one asset in particular can give him the edge. “In my opinion I have the best forehand in the world. My ball striking is the best it has ever been, I have all the tools and that gives me great confidence going into Wimbledon.”

The 23-year-old certainly isn’t shy in sharing where he feels his ambitions can take him. “There are so many things to accomplish”, Edmund says, “there’s always the determination to achieve more and, of course, eventually becoming number one in the world is one of those.”


Reflecting on the pain and sacrifice he has had to make in order to break into the world top 20, Edmund explains, “If you want to be the best you need to be obsessed and do it your way. You definitely need to feel pain, it’s hard, its tiring, but I enjoy what I get from it.

“I am a huge football fan and watching Harry Kane score those penalties with such precision at the weekend reminded me of the way I want to train. You know what you need to do, you practice it hundreds of times and then you back yourself when it really matters.”

Jaguar UK ambassador, Edmund, is approaching his first Wimbledon as British number one with a composed optimism, described how his predecessor has helped him build his edge. “I’ve spent four off seasons with Andy (Murray) and I remember thinking this guy is number three in the world, his work ethic is incredible, if that is what number three looks like, I can’t expect to work less and get higher than that. There are no shortcuts in this game.”
