Grigor Dimitrov Leaps Over Net to Help Injured Opponent Kyle Edmund

See Grigor Dimitrov's amazing display of sportsmanship after opponent is injured

It's only the first week of January and we already have a contender for Sportsmanship of the Year Award- and that would go to Grigor Dimitrov a Bulgarian Tennis player.

World No 21 Kyrgios initially looked nearly disinterested in his quarterfinal, lumbering around with his left knee strapped after tweaking it in his second-round victory over compatriot Matthew Ebden.

"As bad as it is to say, it's kind of like a tap - I can turn it on when I want to", Kyrgios said after the win. I know the feeling.

"I'm not thinking too far ahead". "I didn't think, 'OK, I'm just going to go around the net, or I'm going to go that post.' It was just like such a natural instinct for me to go and jump over".

Dimitrov set up a tantalising clash with Kyrgios after outlasting Edmund.

Svitolina rallied to beat defending champion Karolina Pliskova 7-5, 7-5, and Sasnovich reached her first tour-level final with a 7-6 (3), 6-4 semifinal win over seventh-seeded Anastasija Sevastova.

What TV channel is Kyrgios vs Dimitrov on?

The Australian number one admitted he was flat at the start of the match before switching on at the start of the second set.

Edmund, the world No 50, proved another fearless and plucky customer in a see- sawing contest that lasted almost two-and-a-half hours. The 18-year-old De Minaur will play Ryan Harrison, who led 7-6 (6), 4-2 when Denis Istomin retired from their quarterfinal match with a hip strain. Dimitrov wasted no time in lending a helping hand, sprinting to the other side of the net to assist his opponent to the changeover seat.

Edmund's ankle was taped up and he appeared reasonably comfortable on his return to the court, but the momentum had gone and two games later the match was over.

"At the end of the day, health above all (matters)". "It's very unfortunate what happened. I really hope he gets better". That's just me, I guess.

While Dimitrov continues to impress, his opponent in the quarter-final faced a major injury scare in the third set.
