British number two Kyle Edmund had an injury scare as he pushed world number three Grigor Dimitrov to three sets in the quarter-finals of the Brisbane International. After seeing Edmund's distress, Dimitrov immediately leaped over the net and sprinted to his aid, helping the Briton to his chair.

The 22-year-old appeared to roll over on his right ankle as he tried to change direction to catch up with a powerful Dimitrov forehand at the start of the ninth game.

The injury occurred with Dimitrov serving, the match tied at 4-4 in the final set. I've seen this too many times, I know the feeling.

Edmund finished the match with heavy strapping on his right ankle but couldn't compete at the same level, losing the next two games to exit the tournament.

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.

Private bus operators were also finding it hard as they were not aware of the routes and where to stop. Ten unions had announced launching the strike on Thursday after collapse of talks on wage revision.

"But if a boxer puts his gloves down in a boxing ring, I wouldn't really call it tanking so it's just a strategy and obviously it worked again today".

(The jumping, not the sportsmanship.) Edmund would end up finishing the match, though Dimitrov prevailed 6-3, 6-7 (3), 6-4.

"As bad as it is to say, it's kind of like a tap". "I played some pretty good tennis in the second and third sets".

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.
