Congratulations to local hero, Kyle Edmund for reaching the semi finals26th January 2018
'Nobody wants to play Edmund now'
On his way to the last four, Edmund overcame seeds Kevin Anderson and Grigor Dimitrov which earned him career-best victories at Tour level.
He eventually came unstuck against sixth seed Marin Cilic on Thursday - who prevailed 6-2 7-6 (7-4) 6-2.
Edmund had to call a trainer after the first set for a hip problem and former British number one Castle said: "I think the injury cost him a shot at winning it.
"He's definitely not right physically but I thought he handled the occasion. If you beat Anderson, Dimitrov and others then you're capable and ready.
"Nobody wants to play Edmund now. That's a reputation that goes round. We knew he had a forehand that could put a hole in you but now people have seen other things: defence, attitude, results at a different level.
"He's going to have to recalibrate his own mind now."
