Kyle Edmund: 'Hard work paying off'

Kyle Edmund: 'Hard work paying off'

The world No 49, flying the British flag in Andy Murray's absence, recovered from losing the first set on a tiebreak and a break deficit in the second to become the first British man aside from Murray to reach the quarter-finals in Melbourne since John Lloyd in 1985.

Edmund is an unassuming sort but was delighted to have got past the vastly experienced Italian, who three years ago beat Roger Federer at Melbourne Park. I believe in my game. "So it's no different now".

"It's great to be in the quarter-finals".

Caroline Wozniacki and Elina Svitolina remained on course for a semi-final meeting in the women's tournament after easy wins. Also that the hard work is paying off.

"I've known for a while that my game is a good game, it's unsafe and I can beat a lot of players", he said. That's the way I have approached it, one match at a time, and I continue to do that.

"I'm just really focused right now on my side of the court". I have known that, but like I said earlier, it's always good to get those results. Seppi came to life, grabbing two set points with a controlled forehand to the deuce corner - and he chose the same spot to seal the set in just under an hour. Today I'm happy I switched on a gear and was playing better and better.

Seppi dominated the tie break, biding his time before producing two backhand winners to take the first set, during which Edmund had made 23 errors to Seppi's five.

"You want black-and-white evidence to say, yeah, I'm playing well and beating these guys". There is a lot of things I did do well. I really believe in his potential. 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.

The comeback had given Kyrgios encouragement, though, and he played a tremendous third set, upping the power levels and pulling off the sort of outrageous shots only he can.

The British number two looked tired in the first set and, although he forced a tie-break, Seppi was clearly the stronger.

Clearly Edmund was listening because as Rosengren has watched his charge beat Kevin Anderson in five sets, Denis Istomin in three, Nikoloz Basilashvili in five and now Seppi in four, Rosengren has seen his words turning into results. But that was when the Briton told himself to attack, and a series of huge forehands helped him to break straight back for 2-2. It's good when you get results and it comes together. "But I've won two five-setters too". I was probably doing a little bit more reactive stuff.

'It's a good feeling, it was a really interesting match. "Now that I'm winning, it's just small, small margins in an elite sport". Scoreboard pressure. Break him at 6-5.
