  • Posted: Oct 29, 2018

British number one Kyle Edmund will not play again this season after an MRI scan revealed a small amount of fluid behind his left knee.

The injury is not thought to be serious, but he has been advised to rest and as a result has withdrawn from the Paris Masters.

Edmund, 23, has had his best season to date, reaching the Australian Open semi-finals and a world ranking of 14.

He also won his first ATP title at the European Open in Antwerp on 21 October.

In Paris he was seeded 12th and was due to play Russian Karen Khachanov, the world number 18, in the second round.

Edmund finishes 2018 with a record of 36 wins and 21 losses.

Karen Khachanov recorded his first match win at the Rolex Paris Masters on Monday by beating Filip Krajinovic of Serbia 7-5, 6-2 for a place in the second round. Khachanov recovered from 3-5 down in the first set and saved one set point at 4-5, with Krajinovic serving at 40/30. The winner of two ATP World Tour titles this year at the Open 13 Provence (d. Pouille) and the VTB Kremlin Cup (d. Mannarino) will next play 12th-seeded Briton Kyle Edmund.

Bosnia and Herzegovina’s Damir Dzumhur, this year’s Turkish Airlines Antayla Open champion (d. Mannarino), notched the 100th match win of his career with a 6-4, 7-6(5) win over German qualifier Peter Gojowczyk. He now faces Greek No. 14 seed Stefanos Tsitsipas, who has qualified for next week’s Next Gen ATP Finals in Milan.
