The best hope for British men's tennis at Wimbledon this year is Kyle Edmund. The 23-year-old answered questions from model Leomie Anderson for British Vogue, discussing pressing issues like gender equality—and having some fun along the way.
When asked what equality means to him, Edmund answered, "The main goal at the end of the day is always to treat everyone the same."
Echoing the sentiments about equal pay in women's tennis put forth by fellow Brit Liam Broady, Edmund added, "We do the same job. We put in the same effort."
The 23-year-old was also asked to share tips for tennis success. He answered:
- hard work
- a high ball toss
- having fun
- holding the racquet as if you're shaking hands
Last, his runway-model interviewer added one more task: Serve face.
