The world number 49 made a sluggish start but managed to recover and eventually came out on top against the Italian, winning 6-7 (4-7) 7-5 6-2 6-3 at Melbourne Park.

Edmund was over the moon with the result and now the 23-year-old is looking forward to his first Grand Slam quarter-final, where he will face either Australian Nick Kyrgios or Grigor Dimitrov of Bulgaria.

"Through to my first quarter-final - I am very happy," said Edmund. "It was a close first set and I didn't feel I got the best start. He was hitting the ball very clean.

"In the second set I tried to shift the momentum and once I broke him in the last game of the second set I took control of the match."
