Australian Open - day seven wrap

Seppi carefully plotted a way through the first set eventually winning a tie-break 7-4

Seppi carefully plotted a way through the first set eventually winning a tie-break 7-4

He'll next face Grigor Dimitrov, who came out on top of a fierce struggle against Nick Kyrgios.

But he finally faltered in the eighth and Edmund earned the chance to serve for the match.

As for the matches themselves, did Kyrgios cross the line with his ranting in the direction of his player box?

Britain's Kyle Edmund reached the quarterfinals of a Grand Slam for the first time after coming from a set down to oust Italian Andreas Seppi 6-7 (4), 7-5, 6-2 6-3 in the fourth round of the Australian Open on Sunday. The pod team were hugely impressed.

Seppi, the world No 76, lost only four points on serve during the first set on his way to securing the tiebreak and appeared set to take control of the match when he broke Edmund in the third game of the second set.

The man who lost tight three-setters time and again on the ATP Tour a year ago is now finding a way to win when his back is to the wall.

"It's just another match that I need to go through", Dimitrov said. I feel I have a good ability to control matches and the outcome of matches.

As Kyle Edmund tucked into a hearty meal in the Melbourne Park players' restaurant about an hour after another hard-fought victory at the Australian Open, his energetic and talkative coach, Fredrik "Fidde" Rosengren, sat about 15 metres away extolling the virtues of his charge.

"He plays very well here, he has reached the fourth round a few times and is playing very well but so was I", the unassuming Yorkshireman said on court. I played some great matches. I just have to learn for myself where I haven't been getting it right to get it right. "We are all very happy for his quarters, and hope also this lifts his self-esteem". "Hopefully next match I can do better still". The British number two won the opening three games, before battling back at 5-2 and then taking the set 6-2.

"He's a good player, of course, and for me it's not a surprise", Nadal said of Edmund's progress.

"As you mature and get older, you become better and wiser on court and more experienced and naturally you probably play a bit better".

He added: "You have to believe in what you're doing and who you're working with and what you're doing on the court".

"It's a good feeling", Edmund said.

"He was hitting the ball very clean and dictating a lot of points, so in the second set I really had to try and shift the momentum".

The fourth set was a tighter affair with Seppi calling for the trainer to treat a shoulder issue - something Edmund had done during the first set - and appeared rejuvenated, finding some extra weight behind his groundstrokes and serves.

Cilic, who defeated Pablo Carreno Busta 6-7 (2/7) 6-3 7-6 (7/0) 7-6 (7/3), reached his second grand slam final at Wimbledon last season and has set himself lofty goals for 2018.
