Swiss Star, Roger Federer has crashed out in the quarter final of the Wimbledon after losing to Kevin Anderson by 2-6 6-7 7-5 6-4 12-10
The 32-year-old Kevin Anderson got the better of crowd favourite Roger Federer on Court as he played a marathon 5-setter that last 4 hours and 15 minutes.
Both players were adamant on giving up in an astonishing sequence, Anderson won 3 games in a row on his serve without conceding a point where federer slipped in the 23rd game of the set. He hit two unforced errors, first hitting long with the back hand and then missing a short ball on his forehand.
He then served his first double fault of the match to hand his opponent a break point. Anderson cashed in on the opportunity and took the game. He held his serve with aplomb in the subsequent game and earned his first ever win over the Swiss maestro.
Anderson will face the winner of Rafa Nadal and Juan Martin Del Potro.
