Kyle Edmund is just the sixth British man to reach a Grand Slam singles semi-final in the Open era
Britain’s Kyle Edmund stunned third seed Grigor Dimitrov to reach his first Grand Slam semi-final at the Australian Open.
Edmund was playing in the last eight of a major for the first time but showed few nerves in a 6-4 3-6 6-3 6-4 win.
The world number 49 becomes only the sixth British man to reach the last four at a Grand Slam in the Open era.
He will play top seed Rafael Nadal or sixth seed Marin Cilic on Thursday for a place in the final.
“It’s an amazing feeling,” said Edmund.
“With these sort of things, you’re emotionally engaged and you don’t take it in. At the end of a hard match, I just tried to enjoy the moment.
“It’s my first match on this court and it was very special.”
