Muller took the second set 6-3 so into a decider.

Not bad for Kyle though, first challenger semi and he beat 3 higher ranked players on his way there

Can watch Kyle's opening match in the Recanati challenger here:

http://new.livestream.com/accounts/5057055/events/3172475

Has just taken the first set 6-1 against Marc Giner (WR 267).

Giner is now having an MTO.

Kyle twice a break down in the second set but twice broke straight back. Yet to hold serve this set however - the MTO seemed to upset his rhythm somewhat.

As I type he does hold - 3-3* in the second.

After making his first Challenger SF last week he rose back up to #275 in the world and if he wins this one he'll almost certainly set a new career high in the 260s.

Kyle lost 3&3 to Bozoljac (WR199) in the second round but should still set a new career high after Tuesday's win.

Excellent win for Kyle (now up to a new career high of WR267) this morning, taking out the 7th seed and WR218 (was WR181 until Monday) Thomas Fabbiano 7-5, 6-1 to make the QFs in Astana.

It's a $125k event so the QFs are worth 20 points, which might just be enough to see Kyle break the top 250 for the first time.

Will probably face 2nd seed and WR81 Blaz Kavcic next.

Steven: "The Slovenian has won 21 of his last 22 Challenger main draw matches (won Fergana and Tianjin and runner-up in Nanchang in June, then won Portoroz earlier this month) "

Also beat Muller a couple of weeks ago.

A tough ask, to say the least.

How about this for a result - Kyle Edmund WR 267 beat (2) Blaz Kavcic (SLO) WR 81 (CH 68 in 2012) by 6-3, 6-4 Very Happy

That is Kyle's biggest win of his career (ranking-wise and points wise), and will put him in the low 220s now. That's nearly a 100 place rise in just over a month!

Will play Ricardas Berankis in the semis.

Will be interesting now to see if Kyle heads over to the US to play the US Open qualifying (which he will now qualify for comfortably) or sticks in Europe and carries on playing Challengers.

You can watch a replay of the match here (high quality stream):

Well worth a watch. One of the best performances Kyle has put in. That forehand is lethal.

Interestingly Kyle is the 4th highest ranked teenager as it stands (some of them are still involved in tournaments this week). And the three ahead of him (albeit two nearly two years younger) are some of the biggest prospects in a long, long time. It bodes well.

Top ten teenagers (using live rankings):

1 Kyrgios (19) 760
2 Zverev (17) 343
3 Coric (17) 257*
4 Edmund (19) 220*
5 Pavlasek (19) 217
6 Kokkinakis (18) 212*
7 Krstin (19) 210*
8 Chung (18) 199
9 Nishioka (18) 189
10 Ymer (18) 181

*Still in action this week.

All of those are ranked #263 or above.

It's been a long, long time since so many teenagers have been in the top 300.

Kyle came so close to making his first final - leading 7-5, 4-1 at one stage - but unfortunately after Berankis broke back Kyle seemed to run out of steam and didn't win another game.

Still, a great few weeks and continue to move in the right direction. Fitness maybe needs more work, but that will come with matches.

Meant to be playing Segovia with Dan Cox and a few other Brits next week but wouldn't be surprised if he withdrew.

Kyle is into yet another challenger QF, thrashing the world #265 Ortega Olmedo (who upset Ilhan in the first round) 6-2, 6-2 after beating Dave Rice in R1.

Plays 8th seed Menendez-Maceiras in the QFs, who beat Dan Cox in R1.

Brydan Klein is also in the QFs here (having come through qualies and upset the 7th seed Bozoljac).

Up to provisional #208. A win would send him into the top 200 for the first time.
