Marin Cilic was denied by Andy Murray in his first Australian Open semi eight years ago and another Briton now stands in his way Thursday of making the final.It opened the door for the 2014 U.S. Open champion to make his fifth Grand Slam semifinal, in sharp contrast to Kyle Edmund who is in his first after an extraordinary run in Melbourne.Edmund, ranked 49, is the only British man in this year's field after five-time finalist Murray's injury withdrawal before the tournament.Cilic, who lost to Roger Federer in last year's Wimbledon final, has been serving impressively with a total of 96 aces and a fastest serve clocked at 215km/h (180 mph).He has won 81 percent of his first serve points and 54 percent of his second serve points, while breaking his opponents' serve 23 times.
