Kyle Edmund will bid to continue his solid showings in recent times on the Grand Slam scene when he features at the Australian Open.
The British No 2, starting the year as the world No 50, has become a well-respected member on the ATP circuit since turning pro in 2012.
The 22-year-old, without a title to his name, reached the third round of the French Open and US Open in 2017 but will aiming for a more fruitful campaign in 2018.
Edmund, part of Great Britain's Davis Cup success in 2015, reached the quarter-finals in Brisbane and Delray Beach while his three-set defeat to Rafael Nadal in Monte Carlo was testament to his growing confidence on the clay court surface and against the world's best players.
Once again he will look to target the hardcourt tournaments as an opportunity to earn vital ranking points as he aims to improve on his career high ranking of world No 40, which he reached in October 2016.
