Edmund's impressive run in the tournament continued as he beat Italy's Andreas Seppi 6-7 (4-7) 7-5 6-2 6-3, but the British number two will not stop there and believes he can go all the way.

The 23-year-old enters the last eight of a Grand Slam event for the first time in his career, but is full of confidence heading into the clash with third-seeded Bulgarian Grigor Dimitrov.

"That's why I'm in the quarter-finals - because every time I step on the court, I believe I'm going to win," Edmund said when asked if he has the belief he can win.

"It's no different now. The next opponent, I take it one step at a time. I have to believe I'm going to win and believe in my game."

Edmund served up 25 aces in his victory over Seppi and believes the hard work he did in that area of his game during the off-season, is starting to pay-off.

"It's a very small margin and balance between winning and losing," said Edmund. "It's always been like that.

"I have known that I have not been far off. Now that I'm winning, it's just small, small margins in an elite sport."
