      Career

      Junior tennis

      Edmund made his first breakthrough on the Junior circuit in 2011, when he reached the semifinals of the 2011 US Open boy's singles event, where he was defeated by top seed and eventual runner-up Jiří Veselý of the Czech Republic. The following year he won his first junior Grand Slam title, at the boy's doubles event of the 2012 US Open, partnered by Portuguese player Frederico Ferreira Silva. The two defeated Australian duo Nick Kyrgios and Jordan Thompson in the final, after losing the first set. At the 2013 French Open, Edmund and Silva won their second Grand Slam title, defeating Chilean pair Christian Garín and Nicolás Jarry in the final. Edmund reached a career high of no. 8 in the combined ITF junior rankings in January 2012.

      Senior career

      Edmund began on the ITF Futures circuit, winning his first tournament in October 2012. He played in his ATP first tour match in June 2013 when he was awarded a Wildcard for the annual Queen's Club tournament in London, losing to Slovenian Grega Zemlja, however that didn't dent his confidence as he then won his first senior match at the Aegon International in Eastbourne. Following a wildcard entrance into the tournament, he defeated the world No. 82 Kenny de Schepper, ranked 360 places above him, in straight sets. Kyle then lost two close sets to world No. 17 Gilles Simon, both completed in tie-breaks. At the 2013 Wimbledon Championships, his first senior appearance at a Grand Slam tournament, he entered five separate tournaments, receiving wildcards into the men's singles and doubles due to his junior success. In the men's singles, he lost in the first round to 24th seed Jerzy Janowicz in straight sets. In the men's doubles, he partnered Jamie Baker, losing in the first round to David Marrero and Andreas Seppi in straight sets. In the mixed doubles, he partnered fellow teenager Eugenie Bouchard, losing again in the first round to Frederik Nielsen and Sofia Arvidsson, again in straight sets.

      In January 2014, Edmund received his first call-up to the Great Britain Davis Cup team for their World Group tie against the USA, and was part of the initial nominations before being replaced by doubles specialist Dominic Inglot, meaning he was the first reserve singles player. In April it was announced that former British player, Greg Rusedski, had assumed the role of Kyle Edmund's full-time coach.
