Kevin Anderson earned a three set victory over Stanislas Wawrinka on Thursday at the ATP Paris Masters 1000 6-7, 7-5, 7-6. After dropping the first set the South African upped his game to complete a come-from-behind victory over the Swiss in the French capital. Anderson served down 18 aces on his way to a famous victory.
The Australian Open champion served just eight while both players committed three double faults. Criminally the Swiss landed just 51% of his first serves, although as the scoreline suggests it was a tight affair on the indoor hard court.
Anderson will play his nemesis Tomas Berdych in the quarter-finals. The 28-year old has failed to win a match against the Czech is eleven previous outings. Indeed, the South African has won just four sets out of 31 against the 29-year old.
