It is good to know. Before the match Grigor realised that his grandfather pass way! In his preconference he said: "Have another factor for the result.", He not used the real reason for his lost as an excuse
BBC all over Edmunds now like rash..weren't particularly interested before when he was losing regularly. So now they pile on the usual patriotic pressure ..what he eats, where he grew up etc etc. Just leave the lad alone to carry on doing what he's been doing so well on his own.Good luck Kyle...at least you're alot more pleasant off and on court than our miserable, moaning No 1 Murray.
Really pleasantly and genuinely surprised at this run by Edmonds. I hear he works hard though and see big forehand. Dimitrov I strongly suspect had a big off day too help the Brit. Cilic...theeeen Chung! ?! Would Fed be....disappointed to not play the final? It's up for grabs!!! May the best mend triumph...with one...becoming Champ. Can't call it!
Mark Allen's break points are far stronger
@510 Billy Boy - Andy Murray is a Great Britain and he has already won 3 Grand Slams - what are you talking about??
@515 Paul Bestall Yes, we're talking about the Slams - a term that's been in use since the 1930s, not 1968 (that's not when the Slams began, it's when they became open to m professionals). And, if you're only talking about "recent years", then don't use the word 'ever', which means something completely different.I didn't need Google to know any of that, incidentally.
I remember the excitement when Murray reached his first slam final. Everyone praised him, but it wasn't long before he was classed as the nearly man and not quite good enough to triumph before eventually winning the US Open and then Wimbledon. Murray was the British trailblazer and has made the others believe. We've had our standards and expectations set now, good to see Kyle try and grasp it.
This comment was removed because it broke the house rules. Explain
506. Henman, Rusedski, Konta, Murray and now Edmund have reached slam semi-finals in RECENT years. I'd call that a few unless you would like to change the English language as well as the timeframe. Also, Jamie Murray has done this several times in the doubles. Just bringing some perspective to a good run by Kyle, but that's all it is right now.
@508 Firstly, we're talking about the Slams, an era that began in 1968. Secondly, the point was "in recent years".Thirdly, we all know that, but no one mentioned the pre-Slam era, no-one referred to it and at no point can anyone even consider this recent. Nice use of Google though.
@510 Billyboy"Just think he could be the first Great Britain to win Wimbledon since Fred Perry. Dream big Kyle!"______You appear not to realise that Great Britain is a country. People from it - like, say, Virginia Wade, Angela Mortimer and Ann Jones (who all won Wimbledon after Fred Perry) are Britons.
Billyboy - congrats on getting so many inaccuracies in such a pithy post. Great Britain is a country. This is the Australian Open. Andy Murray is a Briton. He has won Wimbledon twice.
Wrote him off but gladly proved wrong. Cant wait to watch the highlights when i get home!
