    marty21 One on one? You're crazy.

    He's got to the semi-finals of the Aussie Open !

    Is he the new Murray or new Henman ?#comeontim

    Watch the Murray-nationalists use him as tool to beat the english with if he loses the semi/wins the tournament - as he is SA born. That dimitrov can't seem to put two good matches together in a row. Just seen nadal has withdrawn so he plays Cilic...

    His story manages to touch a lot of bases. He's practically Welsh (if he wins) or a ruddy South African if he loses.

    I really want to see the Edmund v Cilic game but it's probably on about 4 a.m. and despite being a night owl even I'm not up at that time!

    He’s not exactly new. He’s been on the circuit for years.

    Sounds like a Yorkshireman to me :thumbs:

    Hell of a chance he's got now though, with Cilic instead of Nadal.

    Interesting tournament for upsets so far.

    Th stars do seem to be aligned for him. Incredibly lucky with the upsets.

    8.30am on 5Live or so they are advertising.

    Should be interesting if I get up in time. Had a couple of 5.30am rises the last couple of days so will either hear the lot or sleep through it. Listened to the quarters & he does have a strong forhand down the line. Come on Kyle! :D

    Well I am up now but might doze off before it starts.

    He has a good chance if he can keep his pecker up.

    Come onTim !

    Born in South Africa and grew up in Yorkshire. Bit of a stretch describing him as almost Welsh lol :eek:

    Not really. He's done two of them already. Beat world no 11 and 3 so far. Now up against no 6 and potentially no 2 after that.

    Cilic has made me look foolish before but end of the road for Edmund I think. Cilic 3-0. Maybe he'll squeeze a tiebreak but his stats from their match near the end of last year suggest an uneven matchup, and Cilic's experience will be a factor.

    Dunno whether he''s improved enough since then. Kyrgios should be in his place.


    Elsewhere, oh dear.

    Yeah, that's where the smart money would be.

    Of course, the smart money has been lost a few times this tournament... ;)

    He obviously read my post in the locker room and put a cheeky tenner on a straight sets loss.

    All hail the mighty Fed. Odd 4th set though, lost his serve three times. Cilic the only man to take any sets of him the whole tournament.

    So basically Kyle Edmund came joint third, so that's like an Olympic bronze medal. Coming third behind the legend that is #Fed20 isn't too shabby and he should be pleased with that and hopefully use that experience to propel himself up the rankings in 2018.

    Federer is just incredible, love watching him play, it's like a graceful tennis ballet. The mens final was ok however as a spectacle, the womens final was much better this year imo (also the semi final between Halep and Kerber) and I'm usually not so keen on womens matches. I was exhausted watching them almost fight each other to a standstill, and the last two points that Woz won to take the title were breathtaking. Shame there had to be a loser.

    Often the Woman's final is shite. 6-2 6-3 or something similar but was a goodun this year.:)
