Bolt's Wimbledon hopes dashed by Edmund

Ian McCullough

Alex Bolt has crashed out of Wimbledon after going down in straight sets to local hope Kyle Edmund.

The South Australian went down 6-2 6-3 7-5 on Court No.1 after spurning a glorious chance to take the match to a fourth set.

Serving for the set at 5-4, qualifier Bolt inexplicably played at a shot that was heading over the tramlines and into the net with the scores at deuce.
