Kevin in quarters
- Updated: March 2, 2012
Top-ranked South African tennis ace, Kevin Anderson is through to the quarter-finals of the Delray Beach International in the United States, writes Mark Etheridge.
Seeded seventh for this tournament, Anderson beat Belgium’s Xavier Malisse in three-sets, prevailing 6-3 3-6 6-3.
The match lasted five minutes shy of two hours out on the Stadium Court.
Nine aces to four helped the lanky Johannesburg-born player finish the job and he also broke Malisse on three occasions.
His reward at this $442,500 tournament, is a spot in the quarters against fourth-seeded Andy Roddick. Anderson came up against the American three times last year and despite losing two of those, will be encouraged by their last meeting where he came up trumps, 6-4 7-5 in their round of 32 match in Beijing, China.
