Mathieu withdraws from Queen’s, Edmund into quarters

LONDON (Reuters) – Frenchman Paul-Henri Mathieu has withdrawn from the Aegon Championships at Queen’s Club because of a wrist injury, meaning British wildcard Kyle Edmund is through to the quarter-finals.

Edmund, ranked 85, will face a fellow Briton in the quarter-final, his second on the ATP Tour this year. He will play either defending champion Andy Murray or Slovenia-born Aljaz Bedene who meet later.

Mathieu suffered the wrist injury beating Britain’s Dan Evans on Wednesday.

It was not clear how serious the injury was.
