Kyle Edmund has spoken in detail about what he has learned from Andy Murray, saying the world No. 2's commitment to practice and training was eye-opening for him as a teenager.

The 21-year-old from Great Britain recently broke into the Top 100, and cited Murray as both an example and a mentor in his climb up the rankings.

“Yeah, it's very fortunate for me that he's allowed me to come into his environment and shared stuff with his team, stay with him and stuff,” Edmund said at Queen's Club. “It's good that he's opened up to me and let me learn from him. It's definitely helped me.

“In Miami we have been to some basketball games or had days off and done stuff as a team together. You know, he's let me stay in his apartment in Miami."

Edmund said that while Murray's achievements—which include Wimbledon and U.S. Open titles, along with an Olympic singles gold medal—have made him the leader of the sport in Britain, he had learned the most from watching Murray train.

“He's been a good role model for everyone,” Edmund said. “His training on court, the intensity he trains at, the length, the physicality he goes, the length, the rallies, the hours he puts in off the court, as well, in the gym. A lot of the time, everyone has their own way of working and what they want to do, but, you know, you spend loads of hours on court, three to four hours on court, and then you go and do an hour in the gym and weights. After weights, it's then an hour doing an ice bath and recovery and then treatment on the bed.

"It's not just like the day is finished once you walk off court. Days are very long. Before the tennis starts there's probably 45 minutes to an hour of stretching and Pilates and stuff. There is a lot of commitment going into that. That's something, obviously when you're a junior at 16, 17, you don't see that side of that because you're still kicking a football around because you're that age. But when you really need to knuckle down and you realize this is a job, this is a life, a commitment, then you realize what it takes.

"And when I was 17, doing my first training block, all that kind of stuff, for me since then that's what I do now a lot. You know, days are very long."

Murray defeated Edmund in three sets in the quarterfinals of Queen’s Club and went on to win a record-setting his fifth career title at the grass-court tournament.
