Grigor Dimitrov's epic display of sportsmanship at Brisbane International

Elina Svitolina

Edmund was wrong-footed on the baseline and collapsed to the ground with a scream of pain after turning his ankle. Dimitrov wasted no time in lending a helping hand, sprinting to the other side of the net to assist his opponent to the changeover seat.

He was able to resume but went on to lose 6-3 6-7 (3-7) 6-4.

"At the end of the day, health above all".

Dimitrov has received plenty of praise from tennis fans for his reaction to Edmund's injury. Very unpredictable - don't really know how I'm going to come out.

Edmund will now have the injury assessed before 2018's opening Grand Slam, which starts on January 15.

On the 1/2-finals tomorrow the rival of the champion will be Nick Kirios (Avl), who beat Alexander Dolpopolov (UKR) with 1:6, 6:3, 6:4. The Australian number one admitted he was flat at the start of the match before switching on at the start of the second set. "I just had to find a way again". "I can turn it on when I want to and turn it off".

De Minaur reached his maiden ATP semi-final, following up a shock win over Milos Raonic by defeating Michael Mmoh 6-4 6-0 and will now face Ryan Harrison, who was leading 7-6 (8-6) 4-2 when Denis Istomin retired.

Grigor Dimitrov won his match against Kyle Edmund in the Brisbane International - but it was his stunning (and athletic) display of sportsmanship that earned him the loudest cheers on Friday.
