Kyle Edmund gets rematch with Grigor Dimitrov in Brisbane quarters

  • Grigor Dimitrov has Reached the 1/2-final in Brisbane

The injury is the latest blow to Britain's prospects at Melbourne Park, with Andy Murray already out and Johanna Konta also struggling with a hip problem.

After Dimitrov got the best of Edmund during a rally, Edmund went down, holding his ankle in agony.

In a tight quarterfinal match in Brisbane, Dimitrov and Kyle Edmund were level at four games apiece in the decisive third set when Edmund dropped to the court mid-point with an apparent ankle injury. Dimitrov hurdled over the net to help and then offered him assistance in getting to the side.

"At the end of the day it's health above all", said Dimitrov.

Dimitrov finished 2017 as the form player on the ATP tour and seems to have carried that momentum into the new season, having held off a ferocious challenge from Aussie underdog John Millman in the second round before another hard tangle with Edmund. "I've seen this too many times".

But winning cures everything, right? And if this is the beginning of the end of their dynasty, what a run it's been. The surprising trade that took place just ahead of the National Football League trade deadline came out of nowhere.

"I will look to fly to Sydney and I'm ready to pick myself up and go again, " he said.

So I don't really think of it that way right now. Dimitrov did not come out of the gate playing the same tennis that saw him climb to number three in the world and win the ATP Finals last season, needing to save two match points in his opening match with local wildcard John Millman.

Earlier Friday, Kyrgios had his left knee heavily taped but didn't appear to be hampered as he worked his way into the match after dropping the first set in 22 minutes. "I played some pretty good tennis in the second and third sets".

The second set followed a similar script, with the top seed breaking first only to have Millman break right back in the following game.

Sasnovich, who has a career-high ranking of No. 85, will meet either defending champion Karolina Pliskova or No. 3-seeded seed Elina Svitolina in the championship match.
