Kyle Edmund fairytale continues with Grigor Dimitrov win

Australian Open

Kyle Edmund produced yet another performance of his life as he stunned Grigor Dimitrov to reach the semi-finals of the Australian Open.

Playing in his first-ever Grand Slam quarter-final, the 23-year-old was just too good for the third seed on the day as he pulled off a 6-4, 3-6, 6-3, 6-4 victory in a match that was just eight minutes shy of three hours.

Edmund broke his more illustrious opponent in the first game of the match, but Dimitrov hit back to draw level at 3-3 before the Brit claimed the decisive break in the ninth game.

A single break of serve in the second meant it was one set each, but Edmund had his nose in front again as he broke Dimitrov in the eighth game of the third set.

Dimitrov continued to be unconvincing on his serve and after trading breaks in the fifth and sixth game, Edmund got an opportunity to serve for the match after breaking to go 5-4 up.

He made no mistake to claim a quite magnificent win over the Bulgarian.

Edmund will face either world No 1 Rafael Nadal or Marin Cilic in the semi-finals.
