Top seed Dimitrov pushed to the limit at Brisbane International

Edmund progresses to quarters in Brisbane after victory over Chung

It's only the first week of January and we already have a contender for Sportsmanship of the Year Award- and that would go to Grigor Dimitrov a Bulgarian Tennis player.

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.

Millman said on early Friday morning that his main emotions were "disappointment and a feeling of deja vu" from his 4-6, 7-6 (10-8), 6-3 loss to world No. 3 Grigor Dimitrov after having held two match points in the second set. It's just tough when you come up against the top seed (Dimitrov) and I would love to win one of those really big ones.

He crashed to the ground with a scream after being wrong-footed by Dimitrov during a rally. Two games later, the defending champion had secured his spot in the Brisbane International semifinals.

Dimitrov will now play mercurial Australian Nick Kyrgios in a blockbuster semi-final. 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".

The Brisbane born and raised Millman has played some of his best tennis on the Pat Rafter Arena, and has taken sets off Roger Federer and Andy Murray in previous tournaments.
