Kyle Edmund’s sensational Australian Open continued as he dumped out World No.3 Grigor Dimitrov to reach his first Grand Slam semi-finals.
Edmund was the big underdog against the Bulgarian.
But he turned in a stunning performance in the Melbourne sun to win 6-4 3-6 6-3 6-4.
Rafael Nadal or Marin Cilic lie in wait on Thursday for Edmund, the World No.49.
“It’s an amazing feeling,” he said.
“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.”
Edmund, 23, playing in his first Grand Slam quarter-final, showed no nerves as he blazed away with his fearsome forehand to subdue a nervy Dimitrov.
He crunched 46 winners to Dimitrov’s 32 on a packed Rod Laver Arena sprinkled with vocal fans of both players.
