Kyle Edmund beats Andreas Seppi to reach Australian Open quarter-finals

Kyle Edmund beats Andreas Seppi to reach Australian Open quarter-finals

Both players got tense in the fourth set, with Dimitrov broken while serving for the match and Kyrgios smashing an easy overhead into the net on a break point.

The most hotly anticipated match of the men's tournament so far lived up to its billing, and Dimitrov won three tie-breaks to clinch a 7-6 (7/3) 7-6 (7/4) 4-6 7-6 (7/4) victory.

As for the matches themselves, did Kyrgios cross the line with his ranting in the direction of his player box? I take it one step at a time. Regarding Dimitrov, is he finally ready to fully deliver on his enormous talent?

British number 2 Kyle Edmund progressed to his first ever Australian open quarter-final defeating Italian Andrea Seppi with a four-set win. The pod team were hugely impressed.

Not only has he gone one better than Murray managed past year, he is the first Great Britain player to make the last eight since John Lloyd in 1985, outside of our absent former world No 1. "I feel I have a good ability to control matches and the outcome of matches".

Made his Wimbledon debut in 2013 but in five appearances has only won one match there.

UK drivers warned of icy conditions as wintry weather continues
Manchester, Bradford, Sheffield and Nottingham are among the locations named by forecasters as areas that face snow and ice today. The fourth-round tie, due to be played on Sunday, was called off after the pitch at Bellslea Park failed an inspection.


Edmund broke him in the eighth game, aced him for the 26th time as her served for the match and, playing big shots all the way to the end, finished it with another big serve wide to the forehand side. I played some great matches. "Through to my first quarterfinal, I'm very happy".

Edmund said: "I know people at home are waking up in the early hours of the morning, so I'm grateful for that".

"I'm admiring myself right there", she said as she watched it back during her on-court interview. "I'm going to need to play with more determination with my forehand in the next match".

However, with Murray out of action for the next few months, Edmund could replace him as British number one before he returns in the summer.

"I have known for a while that my game is a good game and it's unsafe and it can beat a lot of players".

"The most important thing for me is after not playing anything before here I am able to be in the quarter-finals".

Winter Storm to Impact Travel Sunday Night and Monday
A Winter Storm Watch means there is potential for significant snow, sleet or ice accumulations that may impact travel. Conditions will then rapidly deteriorate on Monday.


"It's a very small margin and balance between winning and losing", said Edmund.

He added: "You have to believe in what you're doing and who you're working with and what you're doing on the court".

With Johanna Konta having reached two Grand Slam semi-finals and peaked at world No. 4 in the rankings, Britons will certainly have players to cheer for once Murray hangs up his racquet for good.

"He was hitting the ball very clean and dictating a lot of points, so in the second set I really had to try and shift the momentum".

Clearly Edmund was listening because as Rosengren has watched his charge beat Kevin Anderson in five sets, Denis Istomin in three, Nikoloz Basilashvili in five and now Seppi in four, Rosengren has seen his words turning into results.

Dortmund's Aubameyang stance gets Bayern backing
Zorc said there had been no offers made for the forward, who has been linked with a winter transfer to English side Arsenal . Thus, if all goes as planned, Sanchez will be a United player while Mkhitaryan will be an Arsenal player in the coming days.
