  • Millman had two match points in the second set

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 was the first to come to his aid, leaping the net and sprinting over to help his opponent up and guide him to his chair.

The match was locked at 4-4 in the final set, with Edmund having battled back from losing the first 6-3 to level the match after a second-set tie-break.

On a day when Johanna Konta withdrew from her quarter-final with injury and Andy Murray announced he would not be able to play the Australian Open, Edmund gave British tennis something to cheer about with his win over Chung. "I really hope he gets better".

"I will look to fly to Sydney and I'm ready to pick myself up and go again, " he said. "I've seen this too many times".
