Kyle Edmund crashes out to Grigor Dimitrov after nasty fall in Brisbane

As Kyle Edmund fell to the court of the Pat Rafter Arena and clutched his right ankle in pain, even the British supporters must have wondered if they would make it out of Brisbane without picking up an injury. After seeing Edmund's distress, Dimitrov immediately leaped over the net and sprinted to his aid, helping the Briton to his chair.

"In the last two games he wasn't at his best".

"At the end of the day it's health above all", said Dimitrov.

Dimitrov got an early break in the deciding set and held on to win, saying later the long match would be good for his Australian Open preparations. "It's very unfortunate what happened, for sure". I know the feeling. 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.

"The only positive I can say about losing that first set (against Dolgopolov) is I'm putting myself in some pressure situations and getting some more court time out there which is good". "I played some pretty good tennis in the second and third sets".
