This performance from Kyle Edmund is

suggesting big things.

Carl Edmund,

0:01:270:01:30

his progression continues...

What a

talent -- Kyle Edmund.

It's a big

0:01:300:01:41

win for Kyle Edmund.

0:01:410:01:43

And what a first set this young

man...

A player or where going to be

0:01:480:01:57

following for the future, no doubt

about that. A player we are to be

0:01:570:02:01

following.

Kyle Edmund does it for

Britain.

0:02:010:02:10

He has found a way to win, which is

what it's all about.

0:02:100:02:21

And this young man has really

stepped up.

0:02:220:02:25

STUDIO: Kyle Edmund making his mark

on this tournament, he has had some

0:02:340:02:34

huge wins on the weight to the

fourth round, bust up he beat 11th

0:02:340:02:39

seed and US Open finalist Kevin

Anderson in five sets, twice coming

0:02:390:02:43

back from a set down. Then came

Denis Istomin of Uzbekistan, who

0:02:430:02:47

caused a huge upset at Melbourne

Park last year, beating Novak

0:02:470:02:51

Djokovic. But Edmund dealt with him

in straight sets. Then came a ruling

0:02:510:02:58

duel with Nikoloz Basilashvili from

Georgia, a mammoth five set match in

0:02:580:03:01

temperatures which rose over 40

degrees. Edmonds said, it's a

0:03:010:03:07

professional sport, it's meant to

hurt, it's not meant to be easy. His

0:03:070:03:10

Davis Cup team-mate is frustratingly

watching from home as he recovers

0:03:100:03:14

from hip surgery. He tweeted after

the third win,...

0:03:140:03:25

Jamie Murray was knocked out in the

second round of the doubles

0:03:250:03:28

yesterday and said, so happy for

Kyle Edmund, what a fighter. Kyle

0:03:280:03:34

Edmund has some pretty big

cheerleaders and I think they will

0:03:340:03:40

be glued to

0:03:400:03:40

cheerleaders and I think they will

be glued to this as he takes an

0:03:400:03:41

Andreas Seppi in the fourth round.

Seppi has never been further than

0:03:410:03:45

the fourth round of a Grand Slam but

has made it this far six times

0:03:450:03:53

previously, Domagoj Vida C.

0:03:560:03:59

He did not have to deal with the

scorching heat in the way that

0:04:050:04:10

Edmund did. Well Seppi has the

experience, Edmund is favourite to

0:04:100:04:16

win. At the age of 23 he is starting

out in his career, add ten years

0:04:160:04:21

older Seppi is coming to the end of

his. In his 15 years on the tour,

0:04:210:04:25

the Italian has picked up three

titles, Edmund non-so far. The last

0:04:250:04:30

ten Kyle Edmund was in the forefront

of a Grand Slam was at the 2016 US

0:04:300:04:35

Open, where he was beaten by Novak

Djokovic. -- the last time Kyle

0:04:350:04:41

Edmund was in the fourth round. His

fitness will play a huge part, his

0:04:410:04:46

ability to recover from the five

setter in the third round in the

0:04:460:04:50

scorching heat two days ago.

These two have met only once, when

0:04:500:04:54

Adnan came out on top in the

quarterfinals of the

0:04:540:05:02

quarterfinals of the 2016 European

in Antwerp, a relatively unknown

0:05:020:05:04

opponent for Edmund but both hoping

to make it to the quarterfinals of a

0:05:040:05:07

Grand Slam for the first time.

It is on serve as 3-4, with Edmund

0:05:070:05:11

to serve.

0:05:110:05:18

COMMENTATOR: Seppi looking at that

sideline.

Hit an old ball, I think.

0:06:030:06:09

One fall was very close, but he did

not dare to challenge. Very good in

0:06:090:06:14

the rally until this forehand.

0:06:140:06:21

That was a bit better. I

acknowledged by Edmund. --

0:06:470:06:56

acknowledged by.

0:06:560:06:57

I am pretty certain that Libby

Conroy will be a star attraction at

0:07:310:07:40

the Australian Country Music Awards.

You would be right at home.

I could

0:07:400:07:49

live here, Gary. I love this

country. The only thing is, it is so

0:07:490:07:56

far away from the rest of the world.

0:07:560:08:03

What is your problem?! We reckon

that is the best part about it.

That

0:08:030:08:08

is quite true. Quite far away from

my mother-in-law!

0:08:080:08:18

Knowing her big the Dutch are on

family, she would probably come with

0:08:200:08:24

you. -- knowing how big.

Oh! What a return!

That gets them to

0:08:240:08:34

break points. I don't want to take

any credit, but I think he shanked

0:08:340:08:42

it a little bit and has this extra

angle to it. All of a sudden, while

0:08:420:08:46

the games were going smoothly for

both players, it is a break point to

0:08:460:08:52

be Italian. -- to the Italian.

0:08:520:09:01

Full marks, Edmund. Kept the ball

deep. Great patience.

0:09:240:09:33

deep. Great patience.

He's hit

through it very well. He kind of got

0:09:330:09:37

Seppi off-guard a little bit. Seppi

a little late with his preparation.

0:09:370:09:42

He was already hitting ten or 15

balls very solidly.

0:09:420:09:51

He is starting to find his rhythm,

isn't he?

0:10:100:10:20

isn't he?

It is dangerous with

Seppi, once he finds it, the

0:10:200:10:24

precision with which he hit the

ground strokes, he can carve up his

0:10:240:10:28

opponents very quickly. All very

slowly, based on his last two

0:10:280:10:34

matches.

0:10:340:10:40

Could try to run around and do

something extra with the return, but

0:10:440:10:48

it cost him dearly. He will slowly

dissect you. If you start picking

0:10:480:10:53

your serve, you need to hit more

second shots. That is what he tries

0:10:530:10:59

to do. Not the same style, but like

he did against seraph, for example,

0:10:590:11:05

the other day. -- like he did

against Zverev.

0:11:050:11:14

He is going to challenge. It is out,

all right.

0:11:250:11:32

all right. No greater cause of self

implosion for a player on the tennis

0:11:340:11:38

court than frustration. It is out,

clearly. You get frustrated, it

0:11:380:11:44

plays with your head, your game goes

off. It is self-fulfilling after

0:11:440:11:49

that.

0:11:490:11:55

Some good service, he is mixing it

well from the outset, especially the

0:12:040:12:09

first serve. Although Seppi was

there, it was just too big, 198, his

0:12:090:12:17

biggest serve of the match.

0:12:170:12:27

Forces break point.

0:12:330:12:35

He shakes out of disbelief, but he

never shows that his opponent. He

0:13:080:13:13

never shows it on the other side of

the net.

0:13:130:13:16

Fourth ace for Edmund.

0:13:360:13:40

Oh, dear!

0:14:090:14:13

Self-imposed pressure here now from

Edmund with that double fault. Back

0:14:240:14:28

to deuce.

0:14:280:14:37

Fifth chance for Seppi.

0:14:540:14:58

Once again, going out wide, but it

is so good, so well struck.

0:15:160:15:30

Two in a row. A bit of a mixed bag

on serve as he battles to stave off

0:15:390:15:48

the brake.

0:15:480:15:57

the brake. -- break. Which he does.

An unreturnable serve. That is an

0:15:570:16:03

effort. Well done.

0:16:030:16:08

effort. Well done. STUDIO: A

gruelling set of tennis continued to

0:16:090:16:11

go with serve and a 5-6, Edmund

called for a medical time-out to

0:16:110:16:16

receive treatment on his shoulder.

Despite this, the Brit took the

0:16:160:16:21

opening set to tie-break, where we

pick up the action.

0:16:210:16:31

COMMENTATOR: Found it.

0:16:470:16:51

A big serve, short reply.

0:17:270:17:35

You can clearly see that Edmund

wants to finish the rallies as

0:18:330:18:37

quickly as he can. He is trying to T

off, hitting the ball at least ten

0:18:370:18:47

or 15 Ks harder in the rally.

0:18:470:18:56

Seppi having to rely on second

serve. But it stands him in good

0:19:130:19:19

stead.

0:19:190:19:25

The depth on the second serve was

fantastic. It was only 145 kph.

0:19:510:19:59

Changing ends, gains on serve in the

tie-break, first set. Edmund hitting

0:19:590:20:10

hard. One medical time-out for the

right shoulder. Seems to be serving

0:20:100:20:17

and hitting beforehand without ill

effect at the moment. -- hitting the

0:20:170:20:22

forehand.

0:20:220:20:28

Shadow over three quarters of the

court now. Edmund serving out of the

0:20:490:20:53

shade, into the sunshine.

0:20:530:21:00

CROWD: Come on, Kyle!

0:21:160:21:20

COMMENTATOR:

He is going for it a

little bit too much. Three shots

0:21:580:22:05

where he wants to go down the line

coming he is a little off and misses

0:22:050:22:09

it by ten and 15 centimetres. Then

the pressure is really on. But it

0:22:090:22:14

has been on for the entire set. Kyle

Edmund is dealt with it very well.

0:22:140:22:25

Seppi finally got to the point where

he thinks that he is going to go out

0:22:320:22:36

wide, most likely. Stood there,

waited for a long time and then

0:22:360:22:43

threw his body weight out wide to

try to get to return.

Set point of

0:22:430:22:47

the Italian player.

0:22:470:22:53

Unerring accuracy off the ground

from Andreas Seppi clinches the

0:23:080:23:12

first set in the tie-breaker over

Kyle Edmund, 7-4, the tie-break

0:23:120:23:17

score. STUDIO: Seppi takes the

opening set, and his good form

0:23:170:23:25

continued as he went up an early

break in the second. We rejoin with

0:23:250:23:30

the Italian serving at 1-2.

COMMENTATOR:

Edmund was the clear

0:23:300:23:37

favourite going into this match. Now

it has swapped. A set and a break

0:23:370:23:45

and new balls to play with.

The

predictor has swung Seppi's way at

0:23:450:23:51

the medical time-out for Edmund.

0:23:510:23:59

And the swing in Seppi's favour was

even more marked when he closed out

0:24:040:24:08

the first set.

0:24:080:24:10

Once again, 0-30. Two games in a

row.

0:24:330:24:41

From this perspective, it would be

so big to break back straightaway.

0:24:410:24:50

Seppi came off second best in that

extended baseline exchange.

0:25:200:25:30

Three break back chances for Edmund.

0:25:340:25:42

Two saved.

0:26:200:26:26

Our late match at Melbourne Park

will be the night-time encounter on

0:26:270:26:31

Rod Laver arena between Grigor

Dimitrov and Australia's Nick

0:26:310:26:33

Kyrgios.

The winner of that will meet the

0:26:330:26:38

winner of this in the quarterfinals.

0:26:380:26:41

Oh! Can you believe it?! It was

first for the taking.

0:27:060:27:15

-- it was there for the taking.

What

unbelievable running Seppi did. To

0:27:220:27:27

throw up such a controlled lob so

deep in the court. It is only the

0:27:270:27:34

second or third time we have seen a

smash coming from the baseline from

0:27:340:27:38

Edmund, which he just completely

misses.

0:27:380:27:40

Oh, he has missed! The forehand,

just wide.

0:27:450:27:52

Fourth chance for Edmund.

0:27:580:28:05

Breaks back. Sounds like a song

title. Two games all in the second.

0:28:190:28:28

STUDIO: The second set continued on

serve, we jump ahead to the latter

0:28:280:28:32

stages. COMMENTATOR:

I told you

earlier this week that I played a

0:28:320:28:41

match in 95, they cracked and you

knew egg on the floor to show how

0:28:410:28:44

hot it was. It was the biggest fried

egg I have ever seen in my life.

0:28:440:28:54

The ball kids have to run, now and

then, otherwise their feet would get

0:29:050:29:10

stuck to the surface.

Greats.

0:29:100:29:17

If you have a chance, look at where

the ball kids are standing, close to

0:29:190:29:25

the net or in the back. They are

standing on square patches. It is

0:29:250:29:30

not without a reason.

0:29:300:29:37

A stinging return from a 133 kph

second serve. 0-30. Two points away

0:29:450:29:54

from the set, potentially, for

Edmund.

0:29:540:30:00

He was their committee had the

racket against the ball. -- he was

0:30:050:30:11

there, he had the racket against the

ball.

0:30:110:30:18

That was a gutsy second serve.

It

landed right on the line.

0:30:280:30:38

CHEERING AND APPLAUSE

Solid at the net, Edmund.

0:31:000:31:09

Set point for him.

0:31:090:31:16

CHEERING AND APPLAUSE

He yells like, fantastic, yes!

0:31:260:31:40

It's so fanatic when you play in

Italy against a Frittelli -- and

0:31:410:31:46

Italian. Oh, they help their

countrymen.

0:31:460:31:54

APPLAUSE

Centre Court at the Italian Open,

0:31:540:32:01

it's a bit like a pulpit! -- a ball

hit. Second set point. Edmund.

0:32:010:32:17

Oh... Edmund takes the second serve,

7-5, it's one set all.

0:32:220:32:32

UMPIRE:

Third set, Edmund to serve.

Third set, here we go.

0:32:550:33:03

A bit heavy on the approach.

You

feel that also Seppi was a bit more

0:33:290:33:36

aggressive on the baseline in the

first set, paired to the second set.

0:33:360:33:40

It felt like his shots were a little

harder, a bit more pressing --

0:33:400:33:45

compared to the second set.

Is

Edmund was fuelling the shoulder at

0:33:450:33:50

that point, he wasn't quite hitting

with the same power and depth as he

0:33:500:33:53

is now.

0:33:530:33:55

For a man in the Australian

vernacular with a crook shoulder, I

0:34:090:34:12

think he's not doing too badly, only

two double faults, has missed a

0:34:120:34:17

couple of forehands here. He seems

to be travelling pretty well.

0:34:170:34:28

Oh... Just out!

It's the third time

he doesn't put a smash away.

0:34:390:34:53

APPLAUSE

0:35:180:35:20

The danger for Seppi here, as it was

in the previous set with the break

0:35:260:35:31

of serve each way, Edmund is serving

first. And serving the way he is she

0:35:310:35:35

might be a hard man for Seppi to

break in this third set.

0:35:350:35:46

Second serve ace, 168 K, straight

down the tea, seals the opening game

0:35:540:36:00

of the third set for Edmund.

0:36:000:36:08

Nice swing back, still a slight,

slight advantage to Seppi to win

0:36:190:36:24

this match. Which was actually

funny, because we still think

0:36:240:36:32

Edmund, you know, was the favourite

before the match at one set all. He

0:36:320:36:36

is at 1-0. Why would it be closer

than before?

0:36:360:36:48

That's unpredictable.

0:36:490:36:57

The bottom line is, as far as that

was concerned, you are arguing with

0:37:070:37:13

a computer on this, there's no

future in that.

0:37:130:37:23

Well, it's the computer together I

think with very smart people who set

0:37:230:37:27

the odds for people who obviously

want to bet on tennis, just like any

0:37:270:37:31

other sport.

0:37:310:37:38

I think also, the thing is, you

don't mind putting in a bet here and

0:37:400:37:46

there. First its horse racing, then

it's soccer. On a worldwide level...

0:37:460:37:56

I think these are the top three

sports that are being betted on.

On

0:37:560:38:01

a worldwide level, yes.

0:38:010:38:03

Good tennis. I feel that Seppi is

just not strong enough from the

0:38:220:38:27

baseline. I really feel that in the

first set he was hitting the ball a

0:38:270:38:31

little bit harder, and also a little

bit deeper. We were right in the

0:38:310:38:34

corner every time. And at this

moment it's more Edmund who has the

0:38:340:38:41

power.

Seppi more on the back foot.

15-40.

0:38:410:38:51

CHEERING

Second serve return catches the line

0:38:560:39:02

and gives the break to Edmund.

Edmund had the best of five matches.

0:39:020:39:11

Obviously the last one to Seppi.

Maybe this is something between the

0:39:110:39:16

23-year-old and the 33-year-old.

A

ten year age difference, yes.

It has

0:39:160:39:22

also been tough for Seppi to play

like this. This kid, the

0:39:220:39:26

23-year-old, they have plenty of

energy in the tank. They are just

0:39:260:39:33

throwing with it.

Well, Seppi

certainly had the tougher of the

0:39:330:39:38

five set matches, and they were

back-to-back matches.

0:39:380:39:46

UMPIRE:

Mr Seppi is challenging the

call on the right service line. The

0:39:530:39:56

ball is called in.

He played Yuichi

Sugita of Japan in the second round.

0:39:560:40:03

And then Ivo Karlovic in the third

round. 12-10 in the fifth against

0:40:030:40:10

Sugita, 9-7 in the fifth against

Karlovic.

0:40:100:40:18

CHEERING AND APPLAUSE

0:41:500:41:58

STUDIO: After a rocky start, Edmund

in control of the match. Could he

0:42:120:42:18

see the third set out? We picked up

the action at 5-2 with the Italian

0:42:180:42:22

serving.

0:42:220:42:23

Five shots ready. Return back. Is it

there? Edmund has a full swing on

0:43:030:43:13

the next.

0:43:130:43:14

APPLAUSE

Dave Grohl the only thing you can do

0:43:380:43:46

against this is sit deep -- the only

thing that you can do.

And that's

0:43:460:43:53

what Seppi did. His wife, Michaela.

And his coach.

0:43:530:44:06

CHEERING AND APPLAUSE

Just like that. A couple of break

0:44:420:44:49

points. Easily dealt with by Edmund.

6-2, he leads to- one. -- he leads

0:44:490:44:59

by 2-1.

STUDIO: Cole Edmund now just one set

0:44:590:45:06

away from a first Grand Slam

quarterfinal -- Kyle Edmund. The

0:45:060:45:09

opening exchanges of the fourth set

went with serve. We rejoin the match

0:45:090:45:14

at 4-3.

0:45:140:45:21

COMMENTATOR: No, no, note... The

right idea.

0:45:430:45:49

right idea. Three or four

centimetres wide.

A great shot from

0:45:500:45:53

Kyle, completely out of position.

His back towards the net. He saw

0:45:530:45:58

from the corner of his eyes that

Seppi was making his move.

0:45:580:46:08

And the heavy forehand brings the

error from Seppi. It is 0-30 from

0:46:180:46:22

the Italian.

0:46:220:46:28

Yes, he left that corner open a

little bit too much. He was hoping

0:47:020:47:06

to be able to run around and really

tea off an the forehand.

Seppi was

0:47:060:47:11

right up on the baseline, too.

0:47:110:47:19

Oh, Wow!

Well, you should have

challenged. That ball was right on

0:47:370:47:42

the baseline.

That one?

Yes, but

also you can see from this angle

0:47:420:47:51

what a great forehand winner it

actually is. He doesn't have much to

0:47:510:47:55

work with, but it's the right speed,

the right angle, another two break

0:47:550:48:00

points for Kyle Edmund to go up 5-3

to be able to serve for the match.

0:48:000:48:08

Their routers again, the wide,

swinging serve, no power on it --

0:48:080:48:13

there it is again. Edmund

stretching, just couldn't quite make

0:48:130:48:16

the return. Still a break point.

0:48:160:48:24

CHEERING AND APPLAUSE

That the break. The 5-3 lead, and

0:48:380:48:46

serve to follow for Edmund. The

match is on his racket now.

0:48:460:49:00

Look at him, look at the way he's

looking around the court. He's

0:49:040:49:09

pumped, he's confident. Trying to

catch his breath. Point by point.

0:49:090:49:21

CHEERING AND APPLAUSE

Classic.

0:49:230:49:34

25th ace of the match.

0:49:440:49:53

Hasn't been able to get inside the

baseline for too many of those.

0:50:270:50:37

There's this huge forehand

crosscourt! More than Seppi could

0:51:060:51:12

handle. Brings up match for Kyle

Edmund.

0:51:120:51:21

CHEERING AND APPLAUSE

0:51:350:51:37

Three minutes short of three hours,

Kyle Edmund, after hardly getting a

0:51:460:51:51

look in in the first set, although

games went with serve to the

0:51:510:51:58

tie-break, Seppi took the break,

7-4. Injury time out in the course

0:51:580:52:04

of that set, but 6-5 for a shoulder

for Edmund did wonders, and he's

0:52:040:52:11

hardly looked back since then.

0:52:110:52:18

First of all, congratulations for

your first-ever Grand Slam

0:52:280:52:30

quarterfinal, it must be a great

feeling.

Yes. You, it's good, it's a

0:52:300:52:37

good feeling. But, yeah, it was a

really interesting match.

0:52:370:52:42

good feeling. But, yeah, it was a

really interesting match. Although

0:52:420:52:44

it was quite a close first set, I

didn't feel I got off to the best

0:52:440:52:48

start, he was hitting the ball very

clean and dictating a lot of points,

0:52:480:52:51

in the second set I had to try and

shift the momentum, but I felt that

0:52:510:52:56

once I almost broke him in the last

game and second set, I really took

0:52:560:53:02

control and won the match.

It is the

first time in a tournament you have

0:53:020:53:07

won 25 set game. You should have

thought, surely not another one!

He

0:53:070:53:12

plays very well, he has reached the

fourth round quite a few times. He

0:53:120:53:18

has had 25 set matches against Nick

and won a five set match against

0:53:180:53:23

Karlovic, he is playing very well.

But so was I. I have won two five

0:53:230:53:28

set matches. Through the my first

quarterfinal, I'm very happy.

Now,

0:53:280:53:35

tell us, because, you know, proud

nation, we like to put a little bit

0:53:350:53:39

of pressure on our players. No Andy

Murray, you have the weight of the

0:53:390:53:43

nation on your shoulders, how does

that feel? We know what it's like!

0:53:430:53:49

Yes, I get that! But, yeah, I mean

it's more of a shame that Andy's not

0:53:490:53:56

here. I keep on saying that, you

know. You play for your nation, but

0:53:560:54:01

you are here playing for yourself,

nothing changes in terms of, you

0:54:010:54:06

know, your preparations and process.

But hopefully we have more British

0:54:060:54:10

here in the future. So, yeah, for me

personally I'm very happy to get

0:54:100:54:14

through it and keep doing my best. I

know people at home are waking up at

0:54:140:54:19

silly hours of the morning, so I'm

grateful for that.

0:54:190:54:22

STUDIO: It is a first Grand Slam

quarterfinal for Kyle Edmund. He

0:54:220:54:26

seems to get stronger and stronger

as he closed in on that win,

0:54:260:54:30

dropping the first set but finding

the energy in the cooler conditions

0:54:300:54:32

to finish it off. His new coach,

Fredrik Rosengren of by the side of

0:54:320:54:38

court seemed to give him confidence.

It is a breakthrough victory, 6-7,

0:54:380:54:46

7-5, 6-2, 6-3. Edmund will play

world number three Grigor Dimitrov.

0:54:460:54:50

He came through a match with many

twists and turns against home

0:54:500:54:53

favourite Nick Kyrgios, winning the

first two sets, but Kyrgios produced

0:54:530:54:59

explosive tennis to win the third,

Dimitrov eventually coming through

0:54:590:55:01

in a fourth set tie-break. Grigor

Dimitrov lies in wait for Kyle

0:55:010:55:06

Edmund in the next round. No red

pink and court, given the choices of

0:55:060:55:10

kit for both players this year it

will be a feast for the senses I'm

0:55:100:55:14

sure -- lurid thing. We will have

highlights of that one on Tuesday

0:55:140:55:19

here on BBC Two.

0:55:190:55:20

highlights of that one on Tuesday

here on BBC Two. Let's look at the

0:55:200:55:21

other fourth-round matches. It took

a four sets for Rafael Nadal to get

0:55:210:55:26

past his

0:55:260:55:27

a four sets for Rafael Nadal to get

past his good friend, Argentinian

0:55:270:55:28

Diego Schwartzman. Nadal dropping

his first set of the tournament but

0:55:280:55:31

recovering to power through the last

two. He

0:55:310:55:39

two. He will face 2014 US Open

champion Marin Cilic next. Cilic

0:55:400:55:42

himself notched up his 100th Grand

Slam matchwinner. The number six

0:55:420:55:44

seed beating the tenth seed, Spain's

Pablo Carreno Busta, in the fourth

0:55:440:55:50

set. The top half of the draw now

0:55:500:55:52

Pablo Carreno Busta, in the fourth

set. The top half of the draw now

0:55:520:55:52

looks like this... Rafa Nadal

against Marin Cilic, and Kyle Edmund

0:55:520:55:57

with the biggest match of his career

against world number three Grigor

0:55:570:56:00

Dimitrov. And these are the

fourth-round matches yet to come.

0:56:000:56:05

Fifth seed Dominic Thiem takes on

the appropriately named Tennys

0:56:050:56:09

Sandgren of the USA. Six time

champion Novak Djokovic plays the

0:56:090:56:13

first South Korean to make it to the

quarterfinals of the Grand Slam. We

0:56:130:56:17

will have highlights of that match

for you on BBC Two tomorrow. Fabio

0:56:170:56:22

Fognini plays Tomas Berdych, while

defending champion Roger

0:56:270:56:27

Martin Fuksa pitch takes on

defending champion Roger Federer.

0:56:270:56:27

There is no defending champion in

the women's, Serena Williams sitting

0:56:270:56:32

this one out after the birth of her

daughter. In her absence, there is a

0:56:320:56:36

chance for somebody else to lift the

trophy. It's a bit of a tough call

0:56:360:56:40

it will be.

0:56:400:56:41

trophy. It's a bit of a tough call

it will be. In the fourth-round ties

0:56:410:56:43

today, Elise Mertens of Belgium beat

the Croatian player in straight

0:56:430:56:48

sets. Elina Svitolina, the fourth

seed and a real contender for the

0:56:480:56:52

title, came through against Denisa

Allertova of the Czech Republic.

0:56:520:56:56

Carla Suarez Navarro beat Estonia's

Anett Kontaveit, a tightly fought

0:56:560:57:01

3-set match, but the came through

it. World number two Caroline

0:57:010:57:06

Wozniacki, never a Grand Slam

winner, had an easy win over

0:57:060:57:10

Magdalena Rybarikova. Tomorrow we

will have the full quarterfinal

0:57:100:57:14

line-up taking shape. Djokovic,

Nadal, Federer all in the mix, with

0:57:140:57:19

Kyle Edmund rubbing shoulders with

the big through. In the women's

0:57:190:57:23

draw, only Angelique Kerber knows

what it feels like to win a Grand

0:57:230:57:26

Slam. For any other winner, it would

be a totally new experience. We are

0:57:260:57:31

back tomorrow on BBC Two at 4:45pm

with highlights of the fourth-round

0:57:310:57:37
