Kyle Edmund brought to a halt in Australian Open by Marin Cilic

January 25, 2018

 Edmund's great run at the Australian Open came to a heartbreaking end with a semi-final defeat by Marin Cilic on Thursday.

 

The 23 year old had never before made it past the fourth round of a Grand Slam but an amazing campaign in Melbourne was brought to a stop in the semis, as Cilic went through with a comfortable 6-2 7-6 (7-4) 6-2 win on Rod Laver Arena.

 

The world No 49 heading into the Australian Open, was the British hope while Andy Murray's injury absence and had previously seen off Kevin Anderson US Open finalist and current third seed Grigor Dimitrov
