Anderson beats Querrey in last 8 to spoil American party

Share

Anderson, 31, beat his fellow big-server 7-6 (5) 6-7 (9) 6-3 7-6 (7) to become the first South African to reach the last four in NY since Cliff Drysdale in 1965.

Roddick is the last American male to reach the Open semis, which he did in 2006, and the last to win a grand-slam tournament, the 2003 U.S. Open.

Victory on Friday over Spain's Pablo Carreno Busta, another man in unknown territory in a maiden semi-final at a Slam, will make Anderson the first South African in a final at the majors in nearly 35 years.

The No. 28 seed will play in the semi-finals on Friday (Saturday morning, Singapore time) against the 12th seed Pablo Carrena-Busta of Spain, who beat Argentinian 29th seed Diego Schartzman 6-4, 6-4, 6-2. The impetus behind starting Realife Tennis was what the four (Kevin's wife Kelsey Anderson, Brian Lutz and G.D. Jones are the others) called a frustration with "the way top players are notoriously secretive of their training methods".

"Pretty happy. At the beginning of the week, if you said I would have made quarters, I probably would have signed up for that".

"You know, those matches are tough".

The players traded breaks in the second set and a tie-break always looked set to follow. A lot of his balls were landing (just) in.

They had met 14 times before, with Querrey winning eight, including a five-setter at Wimbledon this summer on his way to the last four, but Anderson coming out on top of their last match in Montreal last month. "You know, it just happened really quick, I guess".

Anderson believes the key to his win was that he was able to "reset" his approach to the game during the intense second-set tie-break. At the same time, I feel like I came into this taking each match at a time. "I really thought I did a fantastic job resetting". "I had my opportunities and I did not capitalise on them". It's just tough. Just a couple points here and there.

It was a closer match than the scoreline suggested but, as in his fourth-round victory over Denis Shapovalov, Carreno Busta played the big points superbly.

Carreno Busta recorded 30 winners to go with 30 unforced errors in the one-hour, 59-minute match.
