LONDON – A game that will probably go down as on of the greatest matches ever at Wimbledon, Kevin Anderson defeating top seed and eight times champion, Roger Federer in a thrilling five set matter to advance to the semi-finals of the event.
After his extraordinary victory, Anderson said even though he was almost out of the game, fighting off match point he knew that he had to keep trying to get back into the match.
“Down two sets to love I tried my best to keep fighting. I kept telling myself to keep believing. I said today is going to be my day,” said the elated South African, seeded eight for the grass court season showpiece at the All England Club.
