British tennis star Kyle Edmund has pulled out of the ABN AMRO World Tennis Tournament in Rotterdam and Open 13 Provence in Marseille. The 24-year-old is still dealing with a knee injury. Edmund, ranked at No. 14 in the world, has no previous appearances on the indoor-hard courts of Rotterdam.
On the other side, the Briton has played in Marseille only once so far in his career -- in 2014 -- when he lost in the first round to Tobias Kamke. After a breakthrough 2018 campaign, Edmund's start to the 2019 season hasn't been great.
The 24-year-old kicked off his season at the Brisbane International -- where he was surprised in his opener by Yasutaka Uchiyama. The Briton then pulled out of the Sydney International with a knee injury but made a decision to play the opening Grand Slam of the season.
2018 Australian Open semi-finalist Edmund, who was clearly not at his at Melbourne Park, was easily beaten by Czech Tomas Berdych in the first round 6-3 6-0 7-5. Meanwhile, a place in the Rotterdam main draw has opened for French Jeremy Chardy following the withdrawal of Edmund.
