Australian Open 2018 Kyle Edmund reaches first Grand Slam quarter-final with win over Andreas Seppi

Kyle Edmund celebrates against Andreas Seppi

Kyle Edmund continues to push himself onwards as the Great British hope as he reached his first Slam quarter-final.

The world No 49, flying the British flag in Andy Murray's absence, recovered from losing the first set on a tiebreak and a break deficit in the second to become the first British man aside from Murray to reach the quarter-finals in Melbourne since John Lloyd in 1985.

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 added: "It's not easy to win four matches at a Grand Slam". My hard work is paying off - just working at everything, my game, on and off the court.

Edmund, nevertheless, has made good progress this month. Dimitrov beat Edmond at the Brisbane International in three sets to start the year.

Earlier on Friday, a man was killed and a minor girl wounded in AJK's Bhimber district along the LoC. In Jhora farm in RS Pura, 150 khullas or mud houses of Gujjars were burned down in the shelling.

And Edmund looked in real trouble when 33-year-old Seppi, who has beaten Roger Federer and Nick Kyrgios twice on previous visits to Melbourne, broke serve early in the second set. "There were a lot of things I did well and maybe a few things I could do better".

"I'm the same player, I'm the same person", he said. "Now that I'm winning, it's just small, small margins in an elite sport".

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. Even when Allertova at game point at 40-0 in the last, Svitolina went on a five-point roll an closed it out with a backhand victor down the line.

"He was playing really well, but so was I". He has really good behaviour, sometimes he could get his hair cut a bit more - we say that in Sweden when everything is too nice. "I didn't feel I got off to the best start".

The third set was all Edmund as Seppi began to tire.

They also demand a statement from the Chief Minister on the matter. "We suspect that they want to hush-up the case", Talib said. Parliamentary Affairs Minister Abdul Rehman Veeri told the Assembly that a speedy inquiry has been initiated into the incident.

The sixth-seeded Cilic won his only Grand Slam singles title at the U.S. Open in 2014 when he beat Kei Nishikori in the final. Having lost a number of close matches past year, he has won two five-set contests here and proved that he has the mental strength when the going gets tough.

Serving at 5-3, his arm tightened and Kyrgios pounced but Dimitrov hit back strongly in the tie-break to move to within a set of victory.

Rod Laver Arena believed he could turn it around but Dimitrov piled the pressure on in the fourth set and eventually got his reward when Kyrgios netted a routine smash on break point at 3-4.

"I thought he actually came out very well and timed the ball well, dictating probably more points than I was".

When Seppi broke the Edmund serve in the third game of the second set, it looked all over bar the shouting.
