Kyle Edmund clinches first Grand Slam quarterfinal at Australian Open

Edmund broke new ground in his career by reaching the last eight of the Australian Open but he has always had the mentality required to succeed at the top

Kyle Edmund defeats Andreas Seppi at Australian Open to reach maiden Grand Slam quarter-final

The unseeded Edmund, ranked 49, dropped the opening set, but finished strongly to eliminate Italy's Andreas Seppi 6-7 (4/7), 7-5, 6-2, 6-3 and has the Bulgarian in the last eight on Tuesday.

Kyle Edmund fought off weariness and Andreas Seppi to reach his first grand slam quarter-final at the Australian Open.

"That's why I'm in the quarter-finals - because every time I step on the court, I believe I'm going to win", said Edmund. Serving for the match, he gets to 40-15 and a perfectly angled wide serve seals the match and sends the 23-year old into his maiden Slam quarterfinal.

Top seed Rafael Nadal also progressed with a four-set win against Argentinian Diego Schwartzmann. It shows I'm improving, also that the hard work is paying off.

Edmund spent his off-season at his new base in the Bahamas working on his serve in particular, and 25 aces played a huge part in the win over Seppi.

"It's just another match that I need to go through", Dimitrov said. "But once I broke him in that last game of the second set I really took control of the momentum of the match". That's the way I have approached it, one match at a time, and I continue to do that. He will next play Kyle Edmund, who reached the quarterfinals at a Grand Slam tournament for the first time.

Representatives for the Doonbeg golf course declined to respond after the sensational transcript was released. What they thought was important, why they believed it was true.

"I'm just really focused right now on my side of the court".

"He was playing really well, but so was I".

The result extended her winning to nine matches, including a run to the title at the Brisbane International two weeks ago. There is a lot of things I did do well.

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

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.

The man who lost tight three-setters time and again on the ATP Tour past year is now finding a way to win when his back is to the wall. He is a wily craftsman who - like a judoka - uses his opponent's strength against him, deflecting the ball as much as hitting it. If there is a chance to stretch a match to five sets, Seppi will jump at it.

That said, it's still possible that both Woj and Kyler could be in the right here. "I've never been in that situation". Kemba would get to go back home (Bronx native), and in case you forgot, he loves playing at Madison Square Garden.

"To play to win, not to play to avoid losing, to have the heart", said Rosengren.

The Italian's clever changes of direction in the rallies were testing his legs, but still Edmund kept pushing him back and broke for 5-3 when Seppi dumped a backhand in the net.

Edmund found himself a set and a break behind but roared back to a historic victory.

"The most important thing for me is after not playing anything before here I am able to be in the quarter-finals".

When he created three break points at 1-0 in the fourth the job looked almost done, but he missed two forehands and the other one perished through an unreturnable serve.
