Kyle Edmund makes Wimbledon breakthrough but fellow Brits suffer

05 Juillet 2017

Yorkshireman Edmund will now play French 15th seed Gael Monfils, who beat Daniel Brands of Germany 6-3, 7-5, 6-4, in round two, while Alex Ward is set to see his ranking improve by around 300 places.

Edmund also revealed he had not studied Monfils much in the past.

"Because you're British, it's the one tournament you want to do well in more than any other tournament".

Edmund said: "I always look out for them". To actually say that I've won one [a match] now is nice in terms of a professional tennis point of view.

"I would have been disappointed, but I'm not going to cry over it".

"It's nice to just win in general", he said. "It's one round out of seven, which is the reality".

Each had their own back story too with Ward having come through qualifying to reach the main draw while Edmund, without a win on grass this year, split with coach Ryan Jones last month.

"I'm completely devastated this moment", she said. From the very first ball I felt comfortable out there.

"From knowing him throughout the years though, he's obviously a very good athlete, moves well and makes a lot of balls".
