Aussie Open gallery: Marin Cilic v Kyle Edmund semi

Australian Open Melbourne Park

Marin Cilic ended Kyle Edmund’s hopes of an Australian Open final on Thursday, and we pick out the best pictures.

The usually mild-mannered Edmund angrily confronted the umpire over the timing of a Hawkeye call he said cost him a point.

And when the umpire wouldn’t help, he took it all the way to the match referee!

Cilic started poorly, causing frustration, but his serve dug him out of trouble.

It was a packed out Melbourne park enjoying the action beneath a spectacular sky.

Cilic’s forehand had Edmund covering a lot of ground as he dictated play throughout.

It proved too much in the end for Edmund, who visibly wilted as the game went on.

Edmund’s chief tormentor was the Croatian’s serve, which was just about immaculate for large periods.

Edmund trudged off with his Australian Open dream in tatters, but his reputation enhanced.
