"It was a pretty good match overall".

In the third set, Anderson, who had stunned top-seeded Austrian Dominic Thiem 6-3, 6-7 (6), 7-6 (7) in the third round, broke Bhambri again to take a 3-0 lead early on. I felt I did quite a few things well today, couple things I thought I could have done a little bit better.

"I'd like to break back into the top 100 by the end of the year and play as many big events as possible", Bhambri said.

His manager Paul Doyle added: "We tried to do everything we could to have him ready but he's just not going to be ready". De Grasse has sustained a hamstring tear this week and the injury is going to cause him to give London a miss.

Anderson has never shared a court with Bhambri except in workouts. Even though the Indian scored just one ace against his opponent's eight aces in the set, he had a clear edge on the first serve, winning 16 out of 17 points as compared to Anderson's 12. "If I would have served better I could have saved it in the third set".

In the third set it really seemed like Thiem, the number one seed of the tournament, and seventh seed in the world, would win the match. "It's a challenge. If I'm taking care of business on my side of the ball, then I give myself the best chance", Anderson said. But Thiem was broken in the 10th game while serving for the match.

Japanese second seed Kei Nishikori's match ended 20 minutes later as he saw off Argentine Juan Martin Del Porto 6-4 7-5 to advance to the quarters, where he will face American Tommy Paul.

"I've practiced with him before but that was a few years ago".
