Coach Fredrik Rosengren absolutely believes Kyle Edmund can win Wimbledon

Kyle Edmund's straight-sets victory over Bradley Klahn saw him into the Wimbledon third round for the first time

Kyle Edmund's straight-sets victory over Bradley Klahn saw him into the Wimbledon third round for the first time

At Wimbledon, the Serb has so far been untroubled, having clinched straight-set wins over Horacio Zeballos and Tennys Sandgren.

"In some ways you could say it would be better if it was first", Hilton told reporters, "because Kyle will want to watch the match, want to be involved in some shape or form, it can be quite draining, just emotionally, because you can't help get involved with it. That's how it goes".

"But today there was just some people, especially behind that end where I got the time violation, they kept on going, they kept on going, provoking".

Djokovic chirped back and blew kisses at the taunting crowd after the chair umpire assessed him a time violation that inspired cheers and jeers from the stands.

"A couple guys were pretending they were coughing and whistling while I was bouncing the ball more or less to the end of the match at that end where I received the time violation".

John McEnroe would be surprised to see Edmund come out on top, telling The Tennis Podcast: "He's had a great year so far, he's legitimate, people respect him in the locker room, so we'll see what he's got to offer". There's absolutely no reason to think he can't, for me. "That's what I didn't like".

"I've played Andy Murray at Wimbledon and the Olympics here but it was definitely not like this".

The 23-year-old is experiencing the unique pressure of being the main hope at Wimbledon for the first time but appears utterly unfazed.

Edmund was the top British man in the draw in Andy Murray's absence and beat Djokovic on clay in Madrid this year. They're all going to be talking about it.

Sophie Gradon’s BF Aaron Armstrong Found Dead Weeks After Her Tragic Death
Officials said there was no third party involvement suspected in the 25-year-old's death. A family friend told the Sun about Armstrong's death: "We're absolutely gutted".

Edmund was making his second appearance on Centre Court after losing there to Gael Monfils last year, and he never looked in any danger against Klahn, a 27-year-old ranked 168 whose career was stalled by back surgery in 2015.

In his third-round match against Britain's Kyle Edmund, Novak had to fight two battles; one against an inspired opponent and the other against a raucous home crowd.

He said: "I'm not aware of that". Not too much in terms of margins. For me, I'm British. I remember playing reasonably well that day.

"I've played in Serbia".

"I don't mind either way, obviously I am a tennis player, so I am here to do my job first".

Despite Djokovic's arguments and even though the replay clearly showed the ball bounced twice, Edmund was awarded the point.

The only concern for Djokovic in his second-round win over Horacio Zeballos was a tweaked left knee late on but he told Serbian media after practising on Friday that it was not a problem.

"Kyle is very devoted". We get along very well. Nothing against Kyle there. "You couldn't know. He was running towards the ball and he just hit it and he dropped his racquet. It was quite a unusual decision from the chair umpire, but it happens".
