ATP Brisbane Dimitrov saves 2 MP's to pass Millman. Edmund tops Chung

The quarterfinal field was wrapped up at the Brisbane International on Thursday, but not before the defending champion very almost joined six other seeded players on the sidelines.

Millman revealed he had been savaged by social media trolls after being unable to put Dimitrov away in a tense second-set tiebreak.

"If I can stay injury-free, I know that I can compete at a very high level".

After Dimitrov got the best of Edmund during a rally, Edmund went down, holding his ankle in agony.


While the crowd held their breath, fearing the 22-year-old Englishman had done some major damage, Dimitrov hurdled the net and ran to his opponent, eventually helping him hobble off court.

Grigor Dimitrov reached the semi-finals of the Brisbane International while Elina Svitolina advanced to the finals on Friday.

I just want to see tennis not only as, you know, my sport, my passion, my love, but it's something that obviously I've proven myself as a player, as a top player, and won big titles. "I probably said it in 2013, and said it probably in 2015, and now I'm saying it again in 2018".

But in the same time, I'm just very pleased the way I played on those key points and especially on the match points.


Speaking after the match, Kyrgios said of his poor start: "As bad as it is to say, it's kind of like a tap". I mean, I've seen him play quite a few times out here, and playing really aggressive, striking the ball awesome, and it was no less tonight. "I really hope he gets better".

Kyrgios was joined in the last four by fellow Australian Alex De Minaur as the teenager followed up his win over Milos Raonic by beating American qualifier Michael Mmoh 6-4 6-0.

Dimitrov prevailed on that occasion but will be disadvantaged this time, having played two late-finishing three-set matches on consecutive nights while Kyrgios benefits from a much more forgiving schedule.
