The Briton fell 7-6 (9-7) 6-3 7-6 (7-4) to Serbia's 24th seed Dusan Lajovic.

This was Edmund's fourth first-round exit in six appearances, with the other being a second-round defeat in 2017.

The 25-year-old Yorkshireman was leading 5-2 in the opening set on Monday before the match was postponed following the deluge of rain which decimated day one's play.

Passive play from the world number 65 allowed Lajovic to instantly fight back to 5-5 when they resumed in bright sunshine at Tuesday lunchtime.

"I just couldn't get into the match and he played well. I have to learn from it," Edmund told BBC Sport.

The two operators are being closely scrutinised by the government over the service they provide after they came in for heavy criticism last year.

Now, the Office of Rail and Road (ORR) says it has put Network Rail "on a warning" in relation to its work in the North West and Central regions of England.

The regulator said Network Rail's performance deteriorated in 2018 and "failed to substantially recover during 2019".

ORR chief executive John Larkinson said: "The top priority for passengers is that their train arrives on time and that isn't happening consistently enough across the country.

"ORR is responsible for looking at how Network Rail contributes to train delays, and while there are areas of very good performance such as in Wales and Western region, Network Rail's performance in North West and Central region is not good enough.

"That is why we are putting the company on a warning to make sure its improvement plans deliver for passengers."
