Grigor Dimitrov has Reached the 1/2-final in Brisbane


It's only the first week of January and we already have a contender for Sportsmanship of the Year Award- and that would go to Grigor Dimitrov a Bulgarian Tennis player.

Dimitrov was on court for nearly two-and-a-half hours before finally subduing the British number two, who was right in the contest until he hurt his ankle with the score at 4-4 in the third set. Dimitrov hurdled over the net to help and then offered him assistance in getting to the side.

"At the end of the day it's health above all", said Dimitrov. "It's very unfortunate what happened", Dimitrov said of Edmund's injury.

Dimitrov, who ended a year ago on a high note by winning the ATP Finals in London, saved two match points to beat John Millman in the Queenslander's home city on Thursday and the powerful Bulgarian will attempt to end another Australian's challenge when he faces Kyrgios on Saturday.

"I knew the last two games he wasn't at his best so I just had to find a way again". It's good to have someone like that.

"I do it sometimes at practice just for fun and all that, but obviously it was different circumstances today".

Edmund defeated Denis Shapovalov and rising Korean talent Hyeon Chung en route to the quarter final but still remains without a victory over a top 10 opponent, having now failed 14 times to do so.

Svitolina rallied to beat defending champion Karolina Pliskova 7-5, 7-5, and Sasnovich reached her first tour-level final with a 7-6 (3), 6-4 semifinal win over seventh-seeded Anastasija Sevastova.
