Who is Kyle Edmund facing in the first round at Wimbledon 2018?

THIS has yet to be decided with the draw taking place on Friday, June 29.

It will be held at 10am.

Edmund will be seeded and as such will face an easier draw than his British counterpart Andy Murray.

The former world No1 is returning from a lengthy injury lay-off and has slipped back to 156th in the rankings – putting him on a collision course with the big-boys on his Slam return.

What is he ranked?

AFTER an excellent 2018 so far, Edmund has climbed to No18 in the world. 

He reached the semi-final at the Australian Open before losing out to Fabio Fognini in the third round at Roland Garros.

His 2017 second round finish at Wimbledon is so far a career best.
