COMMENTATOR:

A good start for the

Brit. Absolutely revitalise that

0:00:420:00:49

forehand...

0:00:490:00:55

forehand...

Oh, yes! England, with

the lead...

Kyle Edmund is a Grand

0:00:550:01:04

Slam semifinalist for the first time

in his career.

0:01:040:01:07

Slam semifinalist for the first time

in his career.

Good afternoon. It is

0:01:070:01:10

a good thing to Edmund is over in

Australia because he is front-page

0:01:100:01:16

news here in Britain -- a good thing

Kyle Edmund is over in Austria. That

0:01:160:01:20

kind of attention could be

unsettling for a Yorkshire unlike

0:01:200:01:22

him. But after his run, it is

something he, like Andy Murray, will

0:01:220:01:28

have to get used to. When in your

last match you beat the world number

0:01:280:01:33

three, Grigor Dimitrov, dropping

just one set in the way, not

0:01:330:01:36

surprising.

I am loving it right at

this. The way I am playing, I am 22

0:01:360:01:42

years old, my first Grand Slam

semifinal, the first time I have

0:01:420:01:45

played on one of these caught in the

world, to be able to play a player

0:01:450:01:50

like Grigor

0:01:500:01:50

world, to be able to play a player

like Grigor,

0:01:500:01:56

like Grigor, of course all of these

things I am aware of and they are

0:01:560:01:59

great feelings. You don't obviously

play in the semifinal of a Grand

0:01:590:02:01

Slam every day. I knew I was in a

good place. There is no reason my

0:02:010:02:04

tennis wasn't good enough to win but

it is obviously about going out

0:02:040:02:07

there and doing it.

He has written

his name into the history books,

0:02:070:02:10

becoming just the six British man to

reach this far in an open era after

0:02:100:02:16

Andy Murray. He was cheered on.

These are the others. Tomorrow he

0:02:160:02:25

plays his first Grand Slam semifinal

against 2014 US Open champion and

0:02:250:02:30

world number four Marin Cilic. Then

there were two mat quarterfinals to

0:02:300:02:34

decide today, with both Tennys

Sandgren and South Korea's Hyeon

0:02:340:02:42

Chung finding themselves in the

quarterfinals for the first time.

0:02:420:02:45

But there was also an old timer

meeting between Tomas Berdych and

0:02:450:02:48

Roger Federer. -- old school

meeting. Before Britain's Specialty

0:02:480:02:59

tomorrow, there have been two

0:02:590:03:10

other special Ks in action.

COMMENTATOR:

That is wonderful for

0:03:100:03:13

her!

Madison Keys, winning entry.

0:03:130:03:29

It's Angelique Kerber against

Madison Keys for a place in the

0:03:330:03:39

semifinal, and unbeaten champion --

champion is on an unbeaten run.

0:03:390:03:44

Highlights of that are coming up

shortly. In the other quarterfinal,

0:03:440:03:48

the world number one Simona Halep

faces Karolina Pliskova. The other

0:03:480:03:56

two are already there and play there

as tomorrow. Madison Keys admitted

0:03:560:03:59

it took awhile to bounce back from

the Flushing Meadows defeat after

0:03:590:04:04

watching her compatriot Stephens

wished to MacLeod the trophy there.

0:04:040:04:08

But she was more than a match for

the two time champion, Angelique

0:04:080:04:13

Kerber -- watching her compatriot

Sloane Stephens left the trophy

0:04:130:04:18

there. Angelique Kerber has won 11

titles to her three, but the loss

0:04:180:04:29

ratio is pretty much level pegging,

with Keys the more consistent

0:04:290:04:33

performer. But often struck with

stage fright at the big moments.

0:04:330:04:42

Let's get into the action and we

start at the very beginning...

0:04:420:04:46

Let's get into the action and we

start at the very beginning...

0:04:460:04:54

COMMENTATOR:

I guess that is the

challenge for Madison Keys. She

0:05:190:05:24

relies so much on the power and the

forehand and the serve, trying to

0:05:240:05:27

find the timing and rhythm as soon

as possible in a match.

0:05:270:05:40

It is going to be vital for Keys

today, digging a bit of a hole with

0:05:490:05:57

an --. Unforced error count. If she

can have controlled aggression.

0:05:570:06:09

After three unforced errors she

finds the line and one break point.

0:06:240:06:31

Of course the more experience you

have at the pointy end, of Grand

0:06:310:06:36

Slams, the semis, the quarters, the

final, and Kerber has the edge over

0:06:360:06:43

Keys, Keys having just one at the US

final last year.

0:06:430:06:52

final last year.

Saved two in this

opening game of the quarterfinal.

0:06:520:06:55

One to come.

0:06:550:07:05

Backhand, down the lane, clean

winner.

0:07:190:07:23

Backhand, down the line,

clean winner.

0:07:230:07:25

Three unforced errors, and a couple

of errors to back it up and we are

0:07:300:07:35

at deuce.

UMPIRE:

Advantage, Kerber.

0:07:350:07:52

So a shaky start with a big wet on

the forehand for Keys, and Kerber

0:08:040:08:10

breaks in the opening service game.

It is one game to love.

There is the

0:08:100:08:18

wind predictor. It is interesting,

Keys just has the edge. According to

0:08:180:08:24

the computer. -- the win predictor.

To the line, and

0:08:240:08:47

finding it.

0:08:580:09:07

She went for it, let rip with that

return.

0:09:470:09:54

You cover a lot of court

when you

play against Angelique Kerber. You

0:10:120:10:19

see the court positioning beer,

Madison Keys along long way behind

0:10:190:10:22

the baseline, just doing the best

she could to possibly stay in that

0:10:220:10:27

point, but unable to -- you see the

court positioning there.

0:10:270:10:36

What a way to bring break point, a

chance to break straight back in,

0:10:520:10:58

the American.

She has continued to

be brave today, Madison Keys,

0:10:580:11:02

because she knows she will make the

unforced errors, but she still has

0:11:020:11:05

to play that type of game. All

nothing.

0:11:050:11:12

All or nothing.

0:11:120:11:20

Oh! That popped up, sat up for an

anxious moment and Keys couldn't get

0:11:320:11:40

it over the highest part of the net.

Right decision?

Oh, absolutely, just

0:11:400:11:47

tried to hit it a little too well.

When you hit it up the line, you

0:11:470:11:51

make sure it clears the net and then

if Keys gets it you are in good net

0:11:510:11:57

position for the volley.

0:11:570:12:06

She won the point, Keys, but that

second serve, just 120km/h, it

0:12:170:12:23

really was just a push for Kerber,

and she does follow up well but very

0:12:230:12:28

often that will be the best

opportunity in the rally for Keys to

0:12:280:12:32

really be aggressive off the return.

0:12:320:12:38

Already seen six break point

opportunities in the first eight

0:12:480:12:51

minutes of play here.

0:12:510:12:57

UMPIRE:

Advantage, Kerber.

0:13:140:13:22

Game, Kerber.

So Angelique Kerber,

former champ here, last former champ

0:13:360:13:42

in the draw, drops out to a 2-0 lead

-- drops down to.

Interesting,

0:13:420:13:51

because there has not been a winner

yet from her and it has all been

0:13:510:13:54

about Madison Keys, seven unforced

errors and the four winners.

The

0:13:540:13:59

tactics are clear. They just needs

to be executed in relation to

0:13:590:14:03

Madison Keys. That's the challenge.

Just like that. Sizzling forehand

0:14:030:14:11

into the open court.

0:14:110:14:22

Didn't make the first backhand up

the line but certainly made the

0:14:560:15:00

second one, Kerber. Moved in on the

diagonal to cut the angled down off

0:15:000:15:05

the serve. Beautiful return. That

will make her feel comfortable.

0:15:050:15:09

First winner after ten minutes of

play.

0:15:090:15:18

Desperate attempt there from Keys,

but the drop shot was never going to

0:15:460:15:53

be good enough, Kerber running it

down easily. Another break point.

0:15:530:16:05

So Kerber pounces. She is in for the

quick kill here against Madison

0:16:080:16:12

Keys, who is a little rattled. It is

3-0.

0:16:120:16:17

STUDIO: A fast-paced start from

Angelique Kerber and she continued

0:16:170:16:20

to dominate the opening set, sealing

it with another break point. On the

0:16:200:16:24

other side of the net, asset to

forget for Madison Keys. Could she

0:16:240:16:28

pick herself up for the second? We

rejoin the action at 1-0 with the

0:16:280:16:33

American serving.

0:16:330:16:43

COMMENTATOR: It looks like she would

love the ground to just open up and

0:16:480:16:51

swallow her at the moment. Not

comfortable at all.

0:16:510:16:58

And a second double.

0:17:080:17:14

That server has deserted her when

she needs it most.

0:17:140:17:20

That serve has deserted her

when she needs it most.

0:17:200:17:28

Some warm applause from the crowd

here in the Rod Laver Arena, trying

0:17:300:17:37

to boost her confidence.

0:17:370:17:46

Another two break point.

And another unforced error.

0:18:060:18:14

Just reaching for that ball, Keys.

Needed another half a step.

0:18:140:18:23

And that's a body blow to Madison

Keys.

0:18:230:18:30

Kerber is well on her way to a spot

in the semifinals. 6-1, 2-0.

That is

0:18:300:18:37

what pressure does there. Madison

Keys, there was no indication this

0:18:370:18:41

was the performance she would

produce in this quarterfinal. Had it

0:18:410:18:47

so well up to this point, but really

not giving herself an opportunity so

0:18:470:18:50

far in this match. And Angelique is

there to make sure that she doesn't.

0:18:500:19:03

See, nothing special they are, from

Kerber. Keeping the ball deep,

0:19:140:19:20

moving Keys around, waiting for her

to make error, isn't she?

0:19:200:19:27

to make the error, isn't she?

0:19:270:19:27

There the forehand! Has it been? --

there's the forehand, where has it

0:19:470:19:57

been?

She needs a whole bunch more

of these, Madison Keys, if she's

0:19:570:20:01

going to find herself back into this

match. Just three for the match so

0:20:010:20:05

far. There has been no forehand, and

the serve has gone missing as well.

0:20:050:20:19

Yeah, it's tough when two of your

big weapons have gone missing. The

0:20:190:20:24

serve and the forehand from Keys.

Maybe some days you're forehand is a

0:20:240:20:28

little off, you serve is still there

or vice versa, but when they both go

0:20:280:20:34

missing, it's a tough day at the

office.

0:20:340:20:46

Too much court cover.

0:21:350:21:41

Too much court to cover.

0:21:410:21:45

Kerber leads, utterly dominant. A

big mountain to climb here for

0:21:450:21:58

Madison Keys. Can she find that

serve and just have a burst of

0:21:580:22:06

energy? That serve, like the

Williams sisters, it can get her out

0:22:060:22:09

of trouble if she needs it.

0:22:090:22:15

The problem is that first serve,

just 143km/h. Normally Keys is 170,

0:22:220:22:30

180, then she closes in on the net

for the volley and of course Kerber

0:22:300:22:34

sees that. Up and over. Fastest

today is just 169km/h.

0:22:340:22:48

Ah, smoking.

0:22:520:23:03

That's a better first serve, and

that is the fastest of the match for

0:23:170:23:24

Keys. She cracked 170. 173, that

last serve.

0:23:240:23:34

Not too sure about that tactic, and

I'm also not too sure about hitting

0:24:010:24:09

to the Kerber forehand. If you are

going to hit it to the forehand,

0:24:090:24:12

pool a wide and open up the space up

the line.

When things are tight, the

0:24:120:24:21

thinking process isn't always clear.

Of course you can have your coach,

0:24:210:24:33

onto the court, and wouldn't you

love to speak to her right now, but

0:24:330:24:38

you actually can't do that at Grand

Slams. I don't like the idea of

0:24:380:24:42

coaches coming onto the court

because I think you should be able

0:24:420:24:44

to solve the problems yourself and

if you can't you're not good enough

0:24:440:24:50

on the day. She certainly has a few

problems here, Keys. Beautiful

0:24:500:24:55

return from Kerber, inside the

baseline, took it nice and early,

0:24:550:24:59

and Keys didn't have time to react.

0:24:590:25:10

Saul Keys holds -- so Keys holds,

for just the second time in this

0:25:410:25:54

match. We Saul Lindsay Davenport

they're just nodding her head. She

0:25:540:25:57

has been such a great a set to

Madison Keys over the years.

0:25:570:26:08

Encouraging applause here.

The fans would love to seecam rally.

0:26:250:26:34

-- to see Keys rally.

0:26:340:26:49

Battering the baseline, that's

better by the American!

That is

0:27:020:27:08

exactly the kind of rallies we

expected before this match started,

0:27:080:27:12

big hitting from Keys, and a Kerber

able to absorb the pace.

Best rally

0:27:120:27:21

of the match. Can Keys break for the

first time?

0:27:210:27:36

And a bit of luck!

Well, she needs a

bit of luck. Three break points.

0:27:380:27:55

Are many search here, and we are

back on serve in the second -- a

0:28:190:28:25

mini surge here. Kerber reads three

games to two.

She will have been

0:28:250:28:37

relieved to have won that game,

Madison Keys. The big hitting paying

0:28:370:28:40

off without making the unforced

error, covering a lot of court.

0:28:400:28:48

error, covering a lot of court.

Can

she serve her first ace? We have

0:28:500:28:54

gone 42 minutes and haven't seen one

off the racket of Keys.

0:28:540:29:05

Just looking up. The southern end is

always tricky for a little bit of

0:29:080:29:13

time yet. You have to adjust the

toss.

0:29:130:29:23

She plays an all or nothing style.

Starting to land a feud now. -- land

0:29:520:30:03

a few now.

0:30:030:30:05

Just when you think she is getting

on a bit of a role, the big forehand

0:30:320:30:38

and good position after a good first

serve, she just overplays the ball.

0:30:380:30:49

The first time, a smile that hides

the frustration.

0:30:490:30:56

Pushing it wide. Kerber broke

straight back. She made unforced

0:31:100:31:20

error the second point and from then

she did not miss a ball. When you

0:31:200:31:25

play someone like that, it puts a

huge amount of pressure on you to

0:31:250:31:29

come up with something a little bit

extra. She is just getting

0:31:290:31:35

everything back and waiting for Keys

to make the error.

0:31:350:31:43

She knew how big that last game was,

Kerber. She had just dropped a serve

0:31:440:31:52

and if Madison Keys had held serve,

suddenly it is very different.

0:31:520:32:01

Sitting duck at the net but cat like

reflexes. Kerber is just too good.

0:32:130:32:29

In normal circumstances Madison Keys

would have ripped this shot but was

0:32:290:32:34

too cautious, and with the second,

too much hype over the net. --

0:32:340:32:40

height over the net.

0:32:400:32:47

Well done. Fighting hard, Keys.

Coming forward. She knew what to

0:33:060:33:18

cover. She was quick enough to get

over there. The volley into the open

0:33:180:33:25

court but still in trouble.

0:33:250:33:27

Kerber is marching towards the

Australian Open semifinals.

0:33:540:33:57

Madison Keys is serving to stay in

the tournament.

0:34:130:34:21

Even the simplest of things become

difficult. 23 unforced errors

0:34:330:34:38

compared to Kerber's seven.

0:34:380:34:45

Just showing little resistance, the

American.

0:35:030:35:10

Everything she touches turns to

gold. Great anticipation and again,

0:35:370:35:46

Kerber going up and over and Madison

Keys at the net. Three match points

0:35:460:35:53

for the former champ.

0:35:530:35:58

And the hot streak continues. She is

on a 14 match winning streak. Kerber

0:36:050:36:18

stores into the semis, demolishing

Madison Keys. 6-1, 6-2 in less than

0:36:180:36:23

an hour.

0:36:230:36:33

an hour. Angelique Kerber will play

the winner of the other quarterfinal

0:36:330:36:37

later this afternoon between Simona

Halep and Karolina Pliskova.

0:36:370:36:45

Congratulations, through to the

semifinals again and you know how

0:36:450:36:49

great a player Madison Keys is, but

what is it about this matchup you

0:36:490:36:55

just love?

It is always tough to

play against

0:36:550:36:58

just love?

It is always tough to

play against Madison. She is hitting

0:36:580:37:00

the ball so hard. I was trying from

the beginning, I played the whole

0:37:000:37:08

week, going out playing my game and

enjoying it, playing on Rod Laver

0:37:080:37:13

Arena. I love to play here, in

Australia, I have so many great.

0:37:130:37:18

APPLAUSE

Did you get a sense that Madison

0:37:180:37:26

came out a little bit nervous.

She

had chances early but did you get a

0:37:260:37:30

sense errors were coming from her?

Do you try to play within yourself

0:37:300:37:35

more or stay aggressive?

I was just

playing my game, not thinking about

0:37:350:37:41

errors, winners, I was staying in

the moment and playing every point.

0:37:410:37:47

The second set, 6-2, but it was

close and in the second set every

0:37:470:37:52

game was close and I am happy to get

through again.

The happiness on your

0:37:520:37:57

face on the court is different to

year. The weight off your shoulders.

0:37:570:38:03

Is it fun again? It is, I really

enjoy my tennis right now, enjoy

0:38:030:38:11

being on court, I am enjoying you

guys, the support is always so

0:38:110:38:17

great.

APPLAUSE

0:38:170:38:19

You have turned 30. You are in your

30s, you are mature!

Yes I have to

0:38:190:38:25

be aggressive because I cannot run

for every ball any more! To be out

0:38:250:38:31

and having fun, it is so great. You

guys, the fans are pushing me to

0:38:310:38:37

work hard. I love you too! Working

hard and being here again and

0:38:370:38:48

working for this moment. Being in

the semis, it means a lot to me.

0:38:480:38:54

STUDIO: Keys showing little of the

fight that made her one to watch in

0:38:540:39:00

the tournament but Kerber ruthless

to take it 6-1, 6-2 in less than an

0:39:000:39:06

hour and a cracker of a semifinal

for

0:39:060:39:09

hour and a cracker of a semifinal

for Kerber because she will meet

0:39:090:39:12

Simona Halep. She beat Pliskova in

straight sets. The last two standing

0:39:120:39:19

in the bottom half of the draw,

Elise Mertens, not seeded and

0:39:190:39:24

playing her first Australian Open,

taking on Caroline Wozniacki, world

0:39:240:39:29

number two.

0:39:290:39:30

taking on Caroline Wozniacki, world

number two. A huge match for Elise

0:39:300:39:34

Mertens and she is one of a clutch

of new people making their mark.

0:39:340:39:38

This is the first South Korean to

make the quarters, Hyeon Chung.

0:39:380:39:46

Beating Tennys Sandgren, who had

never been this far in a Grand Slam

0:39:460:39:53

either.

I beat Sasha and Novak.

0:39:530:40:01

either.

I beat Sasha and Novak. I

think everybody watching, we make

0:40:010:40:10

history in Korea. He will face the

Iceman, five times champion Roger

0:40:120:40:17

Federer, the only one of the big

three left standing after beating

0:40:170:40:22

Tomas Berdych in straight sets. The

last four are Marin Cilic, Kyle

0:40:220:40:28

Edmund and after today, Hyeon Chung

and defending champion Roger

0:40:280:40:32

Federer. And looking ahead to the

Kyle Edmund semifinal against Marin

0:40:320:40:37

Cilic is our tennis correspondent,

alongside Mark Woodforde, who

0:40:370:40:43

reached the semifinals in the

singles in 1996.

0:40:430:40:47

If you have beaten the world number

three, Kyle Edmund's team might say

0:40:470:40:53

to him why can you not beat the

world number six as well? Mark has

0:40:530:40:58

played in many Grand Slam semifinals

and finals before. What difference

0:40:580:41:03

have you noticed in the Kyle Edmund

this year?

I feel I have finally

0:41:030:41:09

seen Kyle Edmund and his ability to

hold his head up and draw on the

0:41:090:41:13

energy with his new relationship, I

think he can trust himself and

0:41:130:41:19

believe he has a game to be in the

semifinals, with a fantastic result

0:41:190:41:24

in the first round, carrying it

through to taking on Grigor Dimitrov

0:41:240:41:29

and he is in with an excellent

chance against Marin Cilic. Just

0:41:290:41:34

trust his game and the serve and

forehand.

How do you prepare for a

0:41:340:41:40

match of this magnitude when you

have not been in this situation and

0:41:400:41:44

you have someone in Marin Cilic who

has won a Grand Slam at the US Open?

0:41:440:41:49

What can Kyle Edmund do to put Marin

Cilic under pressure?

He has to

0:41:490:41:54

remember Marin Cilic has not been in

an Australian Open final so that is

0:41:540:41:59

new for Marin Cilic to be in the

semifinals here in Australia. I

0:41:590:42:03

believe he should use his

connections, the great relationship

0:42:030:42:08

with Andy Murray, probably ask him

what the experience was like for

0:42:080:42:15

Andy, who has successfully played at

the Australian Open and use the

0:42:150:42:18

connection so that he can come out

well prepared against Marin Cilic

0:42:180:42:22

and I think Andy Murray would say

the same, trust your game, you are

0:42:220:42:26

playing well enough and you have a

great chance against Marin Cilic.

It

0:42:260:42:31

is a remarkable conclusion to the

Australian Open for a British

0:42:310:42:35

perspective. No Andy Murray, Johanna

Konta lost early, but Kyle Edmund

0:42:350:42:41

one win away from the Australian

Open final.

0:42:410:42:45

Tomorrow we will turn attention to

Kyle

0:42:450:42:46

Tomorrow we will turn attention to

Kyle

0:42:460:42:51

rankings has been years in the

0:43:260:43:30

making but Kyle Edmund is where he

wants to be and with a chance to

0:43:300:43:34

depose his friend Andy Murray at the

top of the British tennis tree.

0:43:340:43:40

Kyle Edmund, he will keep the
