Tennis - British tennis star Kyle Edmund says his goal is to be ranked in the Top 20 in the world in 2018. Edmund is currently ranked No. 50 in the world and has finished the last two seasons inside the Top 50 but in an interview with ESPN, Edmund says he wants to aim higher in 2018.
"It was okay, I definitely would have liked to have done better. I finished the year in 2016 at 40 something, finished this year at 50 so I maintained my ranking. I've got another year of experience on the tour so I learned a lot.
It would be great to get top 20, top 30 [in 2018]. I've had two years of the same end finish so in 2018 it's a push up the rankings. I've been in three or four semifinals of tour events now so of course, you want to be winning the biggest tournaments in the world.
[But] the biggest thing for 2018 is getting up the rankings as much as possible and that is about turning those close situations in my favor. I haven't changed too much in training; nothing drastic has happened. On and off the court it's constantly making little adjustments and fine tinkering." The 22-year-old has had a good start to the season with an upset win over sixth-seeded Denis Shapovalov in the first round of the ATP Brisbane International.
