The 2016 champion will look to stamp his mark once more in the run up to the US Open. His grass court season could only be described as woeful and he reverted to the clay before a slow start in Toronto and the quarter-final in Cincinnati.
In a week where British hopes were flying high, Edmund’s stint as the last man standing was short lived as a foot issue and a stomach issue left him short against Denis Shapovalov. Taking a wild card – this season served him well last year with a run to the semi-final, and it gives him a chance to get more that just one win under his belt.
After his spirited run at Roland Garros where Cecchinato came from nowhere to reach the semi-final, his grass court season floundered after a gallop at Eastbourne. He reverted to the clay in between the end of Wimbledon and the start of the US Open swing, but so far on the hard courts (at a tour level this year at least) he has yet to claim a win.
