  • Edmund had only won once in his previous five Wimbledon appearances

Edmund was hoping to make it a double English sporting celebration after the players took to the court minutes after England had booked their place in the World Cup semi-finals.

Edmund gave the crowd something to cheer for, taking the first set against the 12-time Grand Slam champion before Djokovic prevailed, 4-6 6-3 6-2 6-4. Djokovic got into a bit of a two-sided argument with the crowd after he was booed following a time violation in the third set.

'No, no, no. I don't think he deserves that, ' he said after his triumph.

"I thought the crowd's reaction after that (time violation) was quite unnecessary". That's OK. But I don't understand why he (the umpire) didn't allow me to challenge the ball.

"I played someone like Nick at Queen's, who is obviously serving very well on the grass". It was not like this, definitely. But at times they were slightly unfair to me.

4 Tim Henman said: 'It's winnable and Edmund beat Djokovic on clay in Madrid but he goes in as a heavy underdog.

"Like I said, Novak does everything well". For me, I'm British. I just think it's not necessary.

"I've played in Serbia". I expected them to support Kyle, obviously.

Djokovic proved he still has the old fire in his belly too when he reacted furiously at 3-3 in the fourth when Edmund scrambled up a low ball for a victor despite replays clearly showing the ball had bounced twice.

Djokovic reacted with incredulity and his frustration was compounded when Garner ruled he could not challenge the subsequent desperate shot Edmund scrambled for a victor - TV replays backed up the Serbian on both counts.

Kyle Edmund has responded to claims he cheated during his third-round defeat to Novak Djokovic at Wimbledon. 'Kyle is a very nice guy. I don't really know what to say. We get along very well. You couldn't know. He was running towards the ball and he just hit it and he dropped his racket. I asked the chair umpire how is it possible he plays that shot if it didn't bounce twice.

'You need television to see it.

"If in real life it's hard to tell, then it's hard to tell for me when I'm scrambling", he said.

The 23-year-old reflected positively on his best Wimbledon run, saying: "Today was reasonably good".

"I would have maybe, looking back on it, liked to have been a little bit more aggressive at stages".
