British number two Kyle Edmund misses out on a place in the semi-finals of the Brisbane International after losing in three sets to Stanislas Wawrinka.

Stanislas Wawrinka has overturned a one-set deficit to edge out Kyle Edmund in the Brisbane International quarter-finals.

The British number two was attempting to move back into the world's top 40 ahead of the Australian Open but he found the three-time Major winner too strong on Friday.

It appeared that the 21-year-old had put himself in position to record the biggest scalp of his career when he won the first set on a tie-break, taking it 7-2.

However, Wawrinka held the edge over the following two sets and although Edmund battled on gamely, he fell to a 6-7 6-4 6-4 defeat.

Edmund is expected to remain in 45th position in the latest world rankings when they are updated on Monday.
