Third round exit for Anderson in Miami
- Updated: March 25, 2013
Our top-ranked singles player, Kevin Anderson crashed out in the third round of the Sony Masters in Miami on Sunday, writes Mark Etheridge.
Anderson, who had a first round bye, went out in a three-setter to Serbia’s Janko Tipsarevic and the two played are now all square in matches against each other.
Tipsarevic, ranked ninth on the ATP world rankings, won 4-6 7-6 (5) 6-0 to progress to the fourth round.
Anderson won the aces battle with six against four but battled with double faults ÔÇô eight of them!
At 61% to 40%, his first service percentage was looking good but on the flip side he only managed to win 31% of points on his second service.
Tipsarevic now comes up against France’s Gilles Simon, a player that Anderson got the better of recently at the BNP Paribas Masters.
