Kyle Edmund: It’s an amazing feeling
“Amazing”, “very happy” and “special” are some of the words Kyle Edmund used to describe his victory over Grigor Dimitrov in the Australian Open quarter-finals.
The 23-year-old stunned the third seed 6-4, 3-6, 6-3, 6-4 on Rod Laver Arena on Tuesday to reach his first Grand Slam semi-final.
“It’s an amazing feeling, I’m very happy. It was a hard match, I’ve had lots of matches so far. I tried to enjoy the moment. It’s my first match on this court and it was special,” he said.
“He’s (Dimitrov) played hard matches, I knew it was going to be tough. I had a dip in the second set, but I broke him at the end of the third had a blip in the fourth and at the end prayed that last ball was out.”
Andy Murray has been the one carrying the flag for Great Britain over the last decade, but Edmund has now received a taste of what’s it’s like to have so much attention.
“Yeah, I know what it’s like to be Andy Murray now for the last seven or eight years!” he said.
“It’s probably the first time I’ve done well on my own, so there’s more attention, but you try to take it in your stride and try to embrace it as much as possible. It’s a good problem to have. The more I keep winning, the better.”
Murray tweeted after Edmund’s victory, but he kept it short and simple.
