Edmund said he'll take some confidence from his tight loss in Brisbane, where Kyrgios beat Dimitrov in the semifinals en route to the title. Both he and Seppi had been forced to the limit in their previous matches, going the distance in brutal temperatures that reached 40-degrees Celsius (104 Fahrenheit), but the Briton was the stronger as the match wore on and he took his chances.
As for the matches themselves, did Kyrgios cross the line with his ranting in the direction of his player box?
At a set and a break up, with Kyrgios ranting at his support camp about the tension of his strings and threatening to implode, Dimitrov appeared in total control of the match. Regarding Dimitrov, is he finally ready to fully deliver on his enormous talent?
Kyle Edmund recorded the most significant victory of his burgeoning career by beating Andreas Seppi in four sets to reach his maiden Grand Slam quarter-final. The pod team were hugely impressed. Why, when clearly you can win a match in one set (the fifth), do you need the four sets before to get yourself into a winning position?
The Yorkshireman changed his coaching team at the end of a year ago and the role is now split between Briton Mark Hilton and Swede Fredrik Rosengren, with the latter on duty in Melbourne.
'It's a good feeling, it was a really interesting match. "It's certainly my best result at a slam", Edmund said. I mean, that's why I'm in the quarterfinals, because every time I step on the court and I'm playing, I believe I'm going to win.
He will now play third seed Grigor Dimitrov, and should he win that then he would very likely have to beat Rafael Nadal and either Roger Federer or Novak Djokovic to lift the trophy. He has really good behaviour, sometimes he could get his hair cut a bit more - we say that in Sweden when everything is too nice.
Edmund spent his off-season at his new base in the Bahamas working on his serve in particular, and 25 aces played a huge part in the win over Seppi.
Edmund showed no signs of tension despite the pressure on his shoulders to break Seppi for a fifth time in the match before showing extreme composure to reach the last eight with flying colours. Rybarikova double-faulted on break point to open the second set and start Wozniacki on her way to a dominant victory in 63 minutes.
"He was hitting the ball very clean and dictating a lot of points, so in the second set I really had to try and shift the momentum". I played well; he played well.
The third seed said: "Playing against Nick is always tricky. We are all very happy for his quarters, and hope also this lifts his self-esteem". Kontaveit looked supremely confident in the early exchanges winning the first set and going 4-1 up in the second.
Edmund was pleased with the way he had turned around the match against Seppi after losing the first set.
