Melbourne: Britain’s Kyle Edmund’s dream of playing a first Grand Slam final was destroyed by sixth seed Marin Cilic in straight sets on Thursday.

Cilic thrashed Edmund 6-2, 7-6 (7-4), 6-2 to become the first Croat to reach an Australian Open final.

Cilic will either face 19-time Grand Slam winner Roger Federer or Hyeon Chung of South Korea in the title clash.
