The ATP rankings on Monday morning will show Edmund at a career high of 24 while Murray slips to 29 after the 500 points he collected for winning last season's Dubai Championships come off.

It is the first time since July 10, 2006, when a 19-year-old Murray overtook Greg Rusedski after reaching the fourth round of Wimbledon, that the Scot has not been British number one.

Murray's fall is the result of the hip injury that has sidelined him since Wimbledon last summer and for which he underwent surgery in January.

It was not the way Edmund had hoped to become top Brit, with the Australian Open semi-finalist saying: "It is humbling to become the British number one and, perhaps unwittingly, as Andy has dropped down in rankings due to his injury."

"As proud as I am, I would have been much happier had Andy stayed healthy and occupied his place at the very top where he belongs.

"Wishing Andy a speedy recovery and I hope to battle it out with him in a more legitimate fashion in years to come. I'll continue to work hard and represent Great Britain as best as I can."
