Injured Nadal retires against Cilic at Australian Open

Nick Kyrgios Matt Reid

Briton Kyle Edmund reached his first grand slam quarter-finals with a 6-7 (4) 7-5 6-2 6-3 win over Italian Andreas Seppi.

Multiple grand slam victor Rafael Nadal or Croatia's Marin Cilic await in the last four.

A tense final game saw Edmund double-fault but an ace brought up match point and then Dimitrov sliced a backhand long which was confirmed by Hawkeye. "I am disappointed", he said.

"It's an incredible feeling, very happy", 49th-ranked Edmund, who could face top seed Rafa Nadal in the next round if he beats Marin Cilic, said on court.

There are few who will be surprised that 2017 Nitto ATP Finals champion Grigor Dimitrov is into the quarter-finals at the Australian Open. "It took me a lot of work to get back to playing a decent match once again".

"Kyle has always been an incredibly hard worker and has always wanted to be the best player he can be", said Cowan.

"It was a close first set and I didn't feel I got the best start".

But Edmund also knows it is a good position to be in because it means he is still in the tournament.

On Tuesday night, Nadal needed a medical timeout after going down 4-1 in the fourth set for treatment on his leg.

Edmund is Britain's only representative in the singles this year after Andy Murray withdrew with a hip surgery, and he has become only the second British male to make it to last four of the Australian Open since 1977.

Edmund quickly established a 3-1 lead, and even through the Brit was broken back in the sixth game, he kept his head down, and in his usual quite hustling style built up patience for a break before holding on to his nerves to serve out the first set.

"I believe I can win that match, like I did today and like before every other match", Edmund said after beating the world No 3, Grigor Dimitrov, 6-4, 3-6, 6-3, 6-4 to claim the biggest victory of his life.

He explained: "Of course it comes with the territory of playing pressure sport".

Cilic said of his win: "It is tough when a player is injured but I had to keep my intensity up and continue with my own game and not keep looking over the net".

Kyrgios was the last standing Aussie in the opening Grand Slam of 2018, after Ash Barty was knocked out in the third round.

Spain's Carla Suarez Navarro has reached the Australian Open quarter-finals for the third time, battling past 32nd seed Estonian Anett Kontaveit 4-6 6-4 8-6. I just accepted that and had things in place to deal with it.

Nadal said tour organisers had to do something about the growing number of injuries among players after the withdrawals of Andy Murray and Kei Nishikori before the tournament and Novak Djokovic struggling ahead of his exit on Monday.

"When you're on these types of stages, reaching the last stages of the best tournaments in the world, it's very pleasing. He was playing good, too", Nadal said.

"It's an fantastic feeling", "With these sorts of things, you're emotionally engaged and you don't take it in". "You have got to have self-belief, you have got to have something to cling on to, something tangible".
