Trail Edmund is breaking new ground,

first Grand Slam quarterfinal for

0:00:460:00:52

the 23-year-old Yorkshireman. We've

grown accustomed to chewing Andy

0:00:520:00:55

Murray into the latter stages of

this land is now Great Britain has a

0:00:550:00:58

new start. Keil Edmund on the best

run of his career. Long may it

0:00:580:01:06

continue. Keil Edmund has already

tasted global success as part of

0:01:060:01:09

Great Britain's winning Davis Cup

team in 2015 but now he's standing

0:01:090:01:13

on his own and he's rubbing

shoulders with some of the biggest

0:01:130:01:16

names in the game. This is how the

quarterfinals look.

0:01:160:01:27

The remaining fourth-round matches

today. Dominic Thiem takes on Tennys

0:01:360:01:43

Sandgren from the USA. Chung is the

first South Korean to make it to the

0:01:430:01:51

fourth round of a grand slam.

0:01:510:01:57

Roger won his first Australian Open

title last year, the only current

0:02:010:02:05

player to top his record at

Melbourne Park is Novak Djokovic, he

0:02:050:02:09

hasn't played for six months since

pulling out of Wimbledon and he is

0:02:090:02:12

still wearing a protective sleeve on

his injured elbow but he's back and

0:02:120:02:16

looking to add to his sensational

six.

0:02:160:02:20

COMMENTATOR: Novak Djokovic claims

his first Grand Slam title.

0:02:260:02:34

Djokovic as the champion again.

0:02:350:02:40

It's over and you have to say the

man deserves it. Incredible.

0:02:400:02:52

man deserves it. Incredible. It's

the iron man from Serbia once again.

0:02:520:02:59

More tennis history for Novak

Djokovic. Wins the Australian Open

0:03:000:03:04

for a fifth time. Another one to

look at -- Novak Djokovic. What a

0:03:040:03:15

player.

0:03:150:03:20

player. His opponent today is

21-year-old who

0:03:230:03:31

player. His opponent today is

21-year-old who won the next

0:03:310:03:32

generation to. These two played

before two years ago. Djokovic

0:03:320:03:36

winning that one in straight sets.

Chung has really developed as an

0:03:360:03:41

athlete since then, this is how he

has made his way to the fourth

0:03:410:03:44

round. An easy first-round for him

after Zverotic Zverev had to retire.

0:03:440:03:54

-- Alexander

0:03:540:04:00

-- Alexander Zverev .0 to two and

Chung came out on top in five sets.

0:04:000:04:05

Chung comes to the fourth-round

match high on confidence after that

0:04:050:04:09

win over Zverev. For Novak Djokovic,

there has been no test so far, just

0:04:090:04:15

Gael Monfils taking him to a fourth

set. He still has that question over

0:04:150:04:20

his fitness, how will he hold up

physically? As they head out onto

0:04:200:04:25

court, you can see Djokovic wearing

the fetching flesh coloured arm she

0:04:250:04:29

is he has been wearing to give

support and protection to the

0:04:290:04:32

injured elbow and Chung wearing his

trademark sporting spectacles. Time

0:04:320:04:37

to get the action started and the

South Korean race to Dubai double

0:04:370:04:44

Brett break lead. Djokovic was

looking for from his best with

0:04:440:04:48

several unforced errors but the

Serbian dug in to draw level and

0:04:480:04:51

take the opening set on a tie-break

which is where we join the match.

0:04:510:04:56

COMMENTATOR: Yes! Turning defence

into attack.

0:05:140:05:24

into attack.

Good stare at the end

as well. Chung has got a very good

0:05:240:05:31

tie-break record. Already played

five this season. Won four of the

0:05:310:05:36

five he has played this season.

0:05:360:05:45

Not only does he extract perfection

from his opponents, Novak, he

0:05:580:06:03

expects it from himself and he was

disappointed with that.

0:06:030:06:14

That is unbelievable. Djokovic looks

like he held the pass until the last

0:06:160:06:26

minute and found a miraculous

volley. Amazing balance with Chung

0:06:260:06:32

when you are faced with Novak with a

double hander, you don't commit one

0:06:320:06:37

way or the other. It was impressive,

terrific get from Novak and at that

0:06:370:06:43

point you thought he had it, could

not get a read on and saw he had to

0:06:430:06:47

hold his balance as well as he did.

0:06:470:06:58

This is just what we expected, isn't

it? High quality stuff. The highest!

0:07:260:07:36

What a rally. Early on in that rally

there was just a regulation kind of

0:07:360:07:42

defensive forehand. From Novak that

we cannot just take for granted

0:07:420:07:45

these days but it's not easy to do

and yet somehow he managed to force

0:07:450:07:49

his way to the net.

0:07:490:07:53

Incidentally, the last second serve

was 178 km/h from Novak, no residue

0:08:030:08:08

would appear from those double

faults early on in this match. Well,

0:08:080:08:12

maybe there is.

0:08:120:08:18

maybe there is. Mini-break goes the

way of the South Korean.

0:08:220:08:25

Bigger first set for Chung?

Definitely. The physical toil is a

0:08:300:08:35

bit of an unknown for Novak out

here. I don't think Chung will be

0:08:350:08:42

too disappointed in some respects if

you lost it in terms of the fact of

0:08:420:08:45

how long it's gone.

0:08:450:08:52

It's breathtaking. APPLAUSE

In every sense of the word. The

0:09:270:09:36

longest rally of the match. 26

strokes, each of them had a purpose.

0:09:360:09:43

How good was the backhand down the

line late on in the rally? There was

0:09:430:09:47

not much follow-through, just a

little flick of the wrist, just

0:09:470:09:51

prior to that.

The height over the

net to give it the depth and then

0:09:510:09:56

the finish. It was a masterpiece of

a point from Novak.

Serbian fans in

0:09:560:10:09

the house taking to their feet after

that one. Still locked in this

0:10:090:10:18

tie-break very much in the balance.

0:10:180:10:25

APPLAUSE

That is terrific.

0:10:290:10:40

That is terrific. Feels like his

forehand has gone up a level in this

0:10:400:10:43

breaker. He is needed to match the

challenge he is now under from

0:10:430:10:46

Djokovic.

0:10:460:10:54

Djokovic. To do with a couple of

first serves here, the former world

0:10:540:10:57

number one. -- could do.

0:10:570:11:05

He got the first serve.

He's

breathing hard. The urgency to get

0:11:100:11:18

the toll there was obvious. --

towel.

0:11:180:11:25

Two forehands go astray and Chung

has got three set points here. 3-31

0:11:530:12:01

Chung Hebdo is terrific forehands to

go up 4-3, right at the end Novak

0:12:010:12:05

was stretching with one arm to chip

it back and then he flexed his elbow

0:12:050:12:09

at the end of it and he's just done

it again after that missed forehand.

0:12:090:12:23

Not sure about that coal air.

Djokovic going for broke, really. --

0:12:400:12:49

call there.

0:12:490:12:53

CHEERING

0:12:530:13:02

That there is an outstanding finish

to such an impressive set, given the

0:13:170:13:24

way it unfolded, he had a grip of it

early, seemed to let it slip but

0:13:240:13:28

under way to take it, Chung wins the

first 7-6. STUDIO: A remarkable

0:13:280:13:34

first set of tennis from the South

Korean and the Novak Djokovic

0:13:340:13:38

struggling in the tie-break, he

called for the trainer to receive

0:13:380:13:41

treatment on the right elbow that

kept him out of tennis for six

0:13:410:13:44

months. How would he fare in the

second set? We join with Djokovic

0:13:440:13:48

serving at one love.

0:13:480:14:00

Djokovic couldn't even move for that

one. Totally flat-footed.

0:14:390:14:51

Just got a shot of Mark Webber and.

Former Formula 1 driver.

0:14:580:15:12

Problems mounting.

I just think he

is winded. The intensity of the

0:15:360:15:44

points, it's just phenomenal. At his

peak, yeah, that would play into his

0:15:440:15:51

hands but he's not at that I would

say Peter match fitness yet.

0:15:510:15:58

say Peter match fitness yet.

Made

it.

0:15:580:16:04

it. The Korean is upset and a break.

STUDIO: Back but Djokovic would

0:16:060:16:14

break back. We return to the match

with the Serbians serving to stay in

0:16:140:16:18

the Senate.

0:16:180:16:25

COMMENTATOR: Obviously fortunate but

also perhaps deserving of it. He's

0:16:400:16:46

got after this ball, really taken it

to Novak and he's got the benefit.

0:16:460:16:54

He went coast-to-coast and Chung was

still there. I don't understand the

0:17:200:17:33

logic of more points being called by

luck with net calls off the server.

0:17:330:17:41

It happens in college.

0:17:410:17:50

Where is the enhancement value of

the fan if points are decided by

0:17:510:17:57

luck of the 130 mph serve? It

doesn't seem to have any common

0:17:570:18:02

sense at all.

0:18:020:18:12

Felt good. But not good enough to

challenge.

0:18:120:18:25

That was a decent return wasn't it?

Every return again, Djokovic just

0:18:310:18:36

caught by surprise.

0:18:360:18:44

Chung two points away from the two

set lead. Beautiful delivery.

0:18:500:18:59

set lead. Beautiful delivery. That

was exactly as he imagined it as he

0:18:590:19:02

was standing on the baseline

bouncing the ball. That is where he

0:19:020:19:06

wanted to play set, enough pace to

get it away from Chung.

0:19:060:19:18

Everyone could see him shaking his

elbow after the first serve. The

0:19:310:19:36

discomfort is seemingly there again.

0:19:360:19:45

No ACs to offset the eight double

faults now for Djokovic.

0:19:480:19:58

Little look up to his team from

Chung.

0:20:000:20:08

Chung.

They can hardly contain their

excitement as their man is at set

0:20:080:20:11

point here.

0:20:110:20:17

Remarkable defence! And the

21-year-old Chung Hyeon has the six

0:20:560:21:03

time former champion on the ropes.

STUDIO: Into set free and it was

0:21:030:21:12

Cheung De Jong who continue to take

the game to Djokovic, the former

0:21:120:21:15

world number one was now in real

trouble and we pick up the action

0:21:150:21:19

with the South Korean serving at

3-1.

0:21:190:21:27

Just going back to Novak's serve, it

does not have to go to a fifth set,

0:22:560:23:07

it could be 3-set, where he has not

served at ace, the lowest I can see

0:23:070:23:12

is against Gael Monfils at the US

Open, this is not including Davis

0:23:120:23:17

Cup, that was just three aces in

five sets.

0:23:170:23:29

That was all the way back in 2005

and his serve got much better. Just

0:23:320:23:39

an illustration, not a single ace

tonight so far in two and a half

0:23:390:23:42

long sets. But his application has

been exemplary. The man seeded 14 in

0:23:420:23:51

these championships.

0:23:510:23:58

LAUGHTER

That is one of the most ridiculous

0:24:360:24:39

rallies you will ever see. How good

was that from Chung? I mean, it was

0:24:390:24:45

good from Djokovic as well, because

he brought the best out of Chung.

0:24:450:24:54

You have more chance of moving Table

Mountain than Chung out of that

0:24:540:24:59

backhand corner. He is an immovable

force.

0:24:590:25:08

It's hard to put into words the

quality you see isn't it? His

0:25:340:25:41

ability in a situation like that to

keep pressing because Djokovic has

0:25:410:25:45

got four or five balls back into

play here, he is thinking against

0:25:450:25:50

everyone else in the world that is

done and he is still there. Little

0:25:500:25:56

look up towards his corner.

0:25:560:26:01

Oh! Can you believe it?

This might

be the game of the year.

I am always

0:26:140:26:31

going to be biased but when I watch

tennis like this I think it's the

0:26:310:26:35

best sport ever. The athleticism,

the eye hand coordination, the

0:26:350:26:42

control, under pressure. All the

facets you need to produce points

0:26:420:26:47

like this.

0:26:470:26:53

He has painted the line. His

reflection, his face says it all. No

0:26:530:27:04

words needed from us.

0:27:040:27:07

Open stance as well. Having just

played the four appointees had to

0:27:110:27:15

play. -- the four points he's had to

play.

0:27:150:27:25

I think if he is wondering if he was

away for six months or six years,

0:27:300:27:37

how the game has changed! That had

everything, testosterone and

0:27:370:27:42

velocity. His pride has taken a bit

of a dent here.

0:27:420:27:50

The young man may be thought he was

there but he's not there just yet.

0:27:550:28:01

Djokovic breaks back. STUDIO: Novak

Djokovic digging deep to keep

0:28:010:28:09

himself in the match, the rest of

the set went with serve until the

0:28:090:28:15

tie-break, were something would have

to give.

0:28:150:28:23

COMMENTATOR: Winner of the next gen

finals in Milan in early November,

0:28:440:28:52

Chung Hyeon.

0:28:520:28:56

I don't think he should have been

there, do you? Never made it beyond

0:29:090:29:15

the semifinal of the tour level

event. Could well be the first

0:29:150:29:22

break-out.

With shots like that!

0:29:220:29:31

For a guy that for a while had a

forehand that many felt perhaps

0:29:320:29:36

would end up being a liability he's

got more winners tonight than

0:29:360:29:40

Djokovic of that particular wing.

0:29:400:29:49

Is that going to prove fatal?

0:29:570:30:05

If it isn't he's going to do summon

up his considerable powers on the

0:30:050:30:12

return. We've seen it over the

years, more so against Federer in

0:30:120:30:18

that epic semifinal with the

forehand return on match point down.

0:30:180:30:26

Wasn't quite as impressive but very

valuable. Just the fact he got it

0:30:320:30:39

back into play, it was a good first

serve from Chung.

0:30:390:30:51

Djokovic has to laugh.

If he had won

that point I think we might have all

0:31:170:31:31

gone home.

We would not have been

far off.

0:31:310:31:37

How is this guy is athleticism? He

was pushed to Sydney and back and he

0:31:400:31:45

still got here and almost pulled off

the forehand, you can only laugh.

0:31:450:31:52

Two big points for Djokovic.

I'm a

little sobriety is not gone after

0:31:520:31:58

the second serve in this manner,

he's got the capability, big targets

0:31:580:32:03

and plenty of velocity on the

return. That would be my only minor

0:32:030:32:08

criticism of his performance

tonight.

0:32:080:32:15

tonight. That is the serve I don't

think he's found with the same

0:32:150:32:20

accuracy as he once did before the

elbow injury which kept him out of

0:32:200:32:23

the game for six months.

0:32:230:32:31

Went back to his favoured serve. It

was good enough.

0:32:410:32:51

Opening three points won by the man

from Korea. The second three

0:32:520:33:01

bouncing back nicely from Djokovic.

Huge roar from the crowd. This has

0:33:010:33:09

been a treat. Full house once again

inside this magnificent stadium.

0:33:090:33:18

3-3.

0:33:180:33:24

He did everything right apart from

the final shot, Novak. Biding his

0:34:100:34:14

time until he got the ball to take

on but just could not take the

0:34:140:34:18

opportunity.

0:34:180:34:21

To good! CHEERING

APPLAUSE

0:34:520:35:01

Running out of superlatives for this

guy.

0:35:010:35:08

Lapping it up.

0:35:270:35:35

21 years of age. Chung Hyeon. On the

cusp of despatching the six time

0:35:390:35:51

former champion.

0:35:510:35:59

Please. Quiet please.

0:35:590:36:06

Please.

0:36:060:36:09

Chung Hyeon is into the

quarterfinals of the Australian

0:36:270:36:32

Open! He becomes the first Korean

ever to make the last eight at a

0:36:320:36:39

major. That was a performance that

will live long in the memory. It's

0:36:390:36:47

just the start of his career. It's

going to be a good one. He is

0:36:470:36:52

through.

0:36:520:37:01

Two years ago you played Novak here

in the first round and he beat you

0:37:020:37:06

in straight sets, this time we have

beaten him in the fourth round in

0:37:060:37:09

straight sets, how did you do it?

I

don't know. I am really just happy,

0:37:090:37:18

I am honoured to play with Novak

again, I'm happy to see him on the

0:37:180:37:23

tour.

It was an amazing match, we

are happy to see Novak on the tour,

0:37:230:37:29

I think a lot of us are happy to see

you playing the way you are playing.

0:37:290:37:33

So many of the shots that you hit

were amazing, incredible. How do you

0:37:330:37:39

hit those shots from the corner, the

flexibility, it's like watching

0:37:390:37:43

Novak do it but it is you! LAUGHTER

I don't know, when I am young and I

0:37:430:37:49

am just trying to copy Novak because

he is my idol.

LAUGHTER

0:37:490:37:55

You have done an amazing job.

0:37:550:38:00

It's difficult to be the champion,

always. You were up 3-0 in the

0:38:030:38:08

tie-breaker and he made it 3-3, when

you walked around the net what did

0:38:080:38:13

you think because you played

beautiful after that?

I just think

0:38:130:38:18

about, I am 2-0 up in sets and if I

lose I have a chance, two more sets

0:38:180:38:23

so I am ready to play two more

hours, I am younger than Novak so I

0:38:230:38:27

don't care!

You are definitely

younger than him but he is pretty

0:38:270:38:32

fit. But for this tournament your

best results in a Grand Slam in a

0:38:320:38:40

major was the third round at the

French Open and now you are into the

0:38:400:38:43

quarterfinals, can you believe it?

I

cannot believe this tonight, dreams

0:38:430:38:49

come true tonight.

STUDIO: What a

story, nerveless stuff from Chung

0:38:490:38:54

Hyeon. Beating Novak Djokovic in

straight sets, unfazed by the

0:38:540:38:59

pressure in the final tie-break and

he is through not only to his first

0:38:590:39:03

Grand Slam quarterfinal but a first

for South Korea as well.

0:39:030:39:08

The fearless are here. The Winter

Olympics. Starts the 9th of February

0:39:310:39:36

across the BBC.

What a month it will be for South

0:39:360:39:40

Korea with the Winter Olympics

coming up in just 18 days' time and

0:39:400:39:43

now they have a Grand Slam

quarterfinalist, Chung Saint Novak

0:39:430:39:49

Djokovic was his idol. If he was at

all-star trucks today it did not

0:39:490:39:54

show. Novak Djokovic might not be

entirely over his injury but you

0:39:540:39:58

cannot take anything away from Chung

with how he played today. The other

0:39:580:40:03

fourth-round business is also

concluded. Tomas Berdych beat Fabio

0:40:030:40:07

Fognini in straight sets. Bit of a

shock coming up, Rob number five

0:40:070:40:12

Dominic Thiem of Austria beaten in

five sets by Tennys Sandgren. Roger

0:40:120:40:19

Federer remains on course for his

20th Grand Slam beating Marton

0:40:190:40:27

Fucsovics. Tomas Berdych is next to

him.

We have had some good ones

0:40:270:40:31

going all the way back to the Athens

Olympics in 2004. I am looking

0:40:310:40:36

forward to playing against him, he

seems in good shape and I am happy

0:40:360:40:40

he's over his back issues which he

also had at the end of last year so

0:40:400:40:44

that's a good thing.

Some brilliant

quarterfinals forward to. The match

0:40:440:40:52

we will focus on, Grigor Dimitrov

against Kyle Edmund of Britain.

0:40:520:41:01

The line-up for the men's

quarterfinals is complete and so too

0:41:050:41:10

for the women, for a while it looked

like 2016 champion Angelique Kerber

0:41:100:41:14

would be the next high-profile

victim of Hsieh Su-wei of Chinese

0:41:140:41:19

Taipei who has already dispatched

Garbine Muguruza and Agnieszka

0:41:190:41:24

Radwanska but Angelique Kerber came

through after dropping the first set

0:41:240:41:28

to continue our unbeaten start of

the season.

I had a tough off-season

0:41:280:41:33

and right now I try to enjoy it and

I know I played good, I played

0:41:330:41:38

really good the last few games and

matches and completely different

0:41:380:41:42

matches that I had. It's great, it's

a great feeling to be back on the

0:41:420:41:47

quarters.

This is how the line-up.

Karolina Pliskova was briefly top of

0:41:470:41:57

the rankings last summer.

0:41:570:42:04

All the hallmarks of a thriller,

Kerber's self belief returned and

0:42:160:42:21

Keys out to revenge her US Open

final loss. Plenty of other sports

0:42:210:42:27

to enjoy across the BBC.

0:42:270:42:30

We will stick to the sunnier climes

of Melbourne with more highlights

0:42:540:42:58

tomorrow afternoon. We will feature

the quarterfinal clash between Kyle

0:42:580:43:05

Edmund and Grigor Dimitrov. If you

cannot wait to find out the result

0:43:050:43:11

set your alarms for 3:30am when our

colleagues on the radio will have

0:43:110:43:16

live coverage. I suspect we will all

be looking a bit bleary eyed when we

0:43:160:43:22

come back with the highlights

tomorrow afternoon, get the copy on

0:43:220:43:26

and enjoy the early-morning party

with Andy Murray who has been waking

0:43:260:43:29

up early to cheer on his friends

throughout the tournament. Can Kyle

0:43:290:43:33

Edmund pull off the biggest win of

his career?

First time in the fourth

0:43:330:43:38

round in Australia. Moving into his

first ever Grand Slam quarterfinal.

0:43:380:43:52

Kyle Edmund, two match points.

Edmund has done it. He has let on to

0:43:520:44:00

the air. He will

0:44:000:44:02

Kat Downes presents highlights of the latest action from the Australian Open in Melbourne. In 2017, Roger Federer won an 18th Grand Slam title while Serena Williams overcame sister Venus to secure the most major wins in the Open era for a female player.
