"It was a tough match - I knew it would be", said the 22-year-old.
In the other men's match tomorrow, our outright picks face decision day, as we need Marin Cilic to beat Rafa Nadal to give us a quarter victor, as well as offering us a really decent outright victor market trading position. But I don't want to lie.
The 23-year-old, whose previous best showing at a Grand Slam was the fourth round of the US Open two years ago, served magnificently on the way to his first top-5 victory. Kyrgios told the Bulgarian to "believe" as he shoots for his first major crown while Edmund will be hoping he has enough gas left in the tank after playing two five-setters and a four-setter in his past three matches.
Asked to rate Edmund's chances of continuing his dream run, Dimitrov replied: "I think once you reach that stage of a grand slam, anything can happen really".
"What he's shown in this tournament is the real competitive character, he's come through the tough matches".
Nadal (right knee), six-time champion Novak Djokovic (right elbow) and 2014 champion Stan Wawrinka (left knee) left their fitness decisions to the eve of the tournament - it's no surprise they are all out of the tournament.
"I worked hard to be here", said Nadal, who skipped tournaments in Abu Dhabi and Brisbane, Australia, while his knee recovered at the start of the season. Today was similar. In the key moments I stepped up well and was fearless, really went for my shots, and they came good. "He's such an unbelievable competitor". He now hasn't won back-to-back Australian Open quarterfinal matches since 2008 and '09, the year he won his only Australian title.
Edmund now has two days to prepare for his first Grand Slam semi-final, in fact his first semi-final at senior tour level, and with it comes an unprecedented amount of interest from outside.

"Against Marin will be a tough one, but at the same time, is a handsome match to play against a great player".
The man standing in his way is Grigor Dimitrov, with the Bulgarian now at [1.33] on the Exchange and looking very short indeed, with my model pricing him at [1.54] instead.
That didn't last for long, though, as Edmund blasted a forehand return victor to break again in game 9, serving for the set in the game that followed.
His moment of victory arrived after a Hawkeye challenge confirmed Dimitrov's backhand had drifted long.
"I just held my nerve in that last game and prayed that last ball would be out", Edmund said. "He was serving unbelievably, playing unbelievably", said Dimitrov. "It hurts, and so it should".
Channel Seven presenter Melanie McLaughlin took a cheeky jab at the Hollywood icon for his role in a video alongside Aussie wheelchair tennis star Dylan Alcott.
"I know what it feels like to be Andy Murray for the last eight years", he joked. "The biggest praise I can give Kyle is that he was in the quarter-finals for the first time and he handled the occasion better than his opponent, who is world number three". "So it is more attention there, but of course you just take it in your stride, trying to embrace it as much as possible".
