However, rather than feel any pressure from the recent comparisons with US Open champion Murray, Edmund has described the 26-year-old's rise to prominence as a "great inspiration" to him.
"He's such a great inspiration, especially being British," Edmund is quoted as saying by The Sun. "He's been on this path. He got wildcards for his first Wimbledon and it was a real stepping stone to launch his career. I can learn from it.
"It's such a great honour and opportunity to be playing Wimbledon this year. Of course I'd be up for playing on Centre Court. I've been watching Centre Court since I was a little boy. It's a dream to play on it. But whichever court I play on, it's Wimbledon."
Edmund recently won the junior French Open doubles title alongside Frederico Ferreira Silva.
