Kyle Edmund describes his straight-sets defeat to Jerzy Janowicz in the first round of Wimbledon as a "tough experience".

Kyle Edmund has described his defeat to Jerzy Janowicz in the first round of Wimbledon as a "tough experience".

The British wildcard, 18, lost 6-2 6-2 6-4 to the Polish 24th seed on Monday in what was his first senior appearance at the tournament.

"It was a tough experience," Edmund told BBC Sport. "He's such a big player, hits the ball really hard, and if you're not on it 100% it's very tough. I still played okay, I thought, but at that level, I think I need to play better to win.

"In terms of all the support and stuff, it was great to play on that court. My first Wimbledon, I couldn't ask for anything more. It's a day I'll never forget to play. So it was a really good experience."

Edmund will continue to compete at this year's Championships in the boys' singles event.
