He crashed to the ground with a scream after being wrong-footed by Dimitrov during a rally.
Instead of going around the court to check on Edmund, the tennis pro went up and over the net before helping the British No. 2 tennis player to the sideline. But after having his ankle strapped the Englishman was able to carry on, although his movement appeared restricted.
Thankfully, Edmund reported after the 6-3, 6-7 (3-7), 6-4 defeat by Grigor Dimitrov, the 2017 ATP Finals...
"At the end of the day it's health above all", said Dimitrov.
In this way, Dimitrov qualified for the 1/4-finals of the tournament where he will meet Kyle Edmund, who beat the Korean Hon Chun in three sets. "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. The two square off in the quarterfinals tomorrow in Brisbane.
With the other semi-final featuring wildcard Alex De Minaur against unfancied American Ryan Harrison, the victor of Kyrgios vs Dimitrov will be hot favourite to lift the trophy.
Kyrgios has not had it all his own way en route to the semis, losing the first set against Matthew Ebden and Alexandr Dolgopolov, but he has battled back to reach the last four. "I probably said it in 2013, and said it probably in 2015, and now I'm saying it again in 2018". "Simple as that. You just never know what can come from him". "I can turn it on when I want to", the third seed told reporters.
The second semi-final will be between Australian wildcard Alex de Minaur and American Ryan Harrison.
Belarusian qualifier Aliaksandra Sasnovich reached her first tour-level final with a 7-6 (3), 6-4 semifinal win over seventh-seeded Anastasija Sevastova.
