19-year-old budding British talent Kyle Edmund will now be coached by former British No. 1 Greg Rusedski.
The former ATP world No. 4 has set his sights on developing the skills set of the world No. 292, and will be with him for the foreseeable future. Edmund is yet to win a match on the ATP World Tour this season, as he is 0-3 so far with losses in Chennai, Marseille and Miami.
“I think this is great that this has happened. No disrespect to Colin Beecher, who did great work, but change sometimes should happen.” LTA chief executive Michael Downey said. “I think it reflects very highly that not only did Kyle look for a change but that Greg wanted to step up and take on this challenge.”
Rusedski is with Edmund this week in Italy at a Challenger tournament, where the top ranked British teenager worked his way through qualifying and won his opening round match against fourth seed Alijaz Bedene.
