After a winning first round, Johanna Konta lost to Dominika Cibulkova. The 27-year-old tennis player left Wimbledon, and the only Briton left in the tournament is Kyle Edmund. After dominating on the court against Alex Bolt, Edmund scored another win against Bradley Klahn. The next stop for Britain’s number one is a match against Novak Djokovic. Whether the Briton will progress to the next stage of the tournament or not, we’ll see later today.
Our first topic is Johanna Konta. The Eastbourne-born tennis player started this year’s Wimbledon with a win. It appeared Konta is getting back on her feet after. The favourite of best UK betting sites, however, suffered a loss from Dominika Cibulkova and was knocked out of the tournament in the second round.
Edmund Kyle, on the other hand, is keeping Britain in the game. The 23-year-old tennis player has so far defeated his two Wimbledon opponents with little effort – so it seems. He is confident and plays well, which so far matches his winning streak at Wimbledon.
Now, the Briton is up against Novak Djokovic, and this time, Edmund will have to show his A game to defeat world’s 21. Kyle and Djokovic have already met on the court four times.
In 2016, Djokovic defeated Edmund at the ATP World Tour Masters 1000 Miami, only to record another win against the Brit at the US Open in that same year. The third and final win against Edmund for Djokovic was at the ATP World Tour Masters 1000 Indian Wells in 2017.
It was this year that Kyle finally scored a win against Serbian player at the ATP World Tour Masters 1000 Madrid. We’ll have to wait and see how today’s game is going to play out.
Commenting on the upcoming match against Djokovic, Edmund said, “Playing Djokovic is always tough. He's one of the best players of all time. For sure, there's always that massive respect. I'm just going to go out there and do my best.”
