Anderson into Casablanca quarters
- Updated: April 12, 2013
Our top-ranked singles player, Kevin Anderson cruised into the quarter-finals of the Grand Prix Hassan II tennis tournament in Casablanca, Morocco on Thursday, writes Mark Etheridge.
He accounted for Spanish qualifier Pablo Carreno-Busta in straight sets, winning 6-3 6-3 to book his place against Slovenia’s Grega Zemlja who himself beat a qualifier, Henri Laaksonen of Switzerland in straight sets.
Seeded second for this tournament, Anderson needed just over an hour to go through to meet the eighth seeded Zemlja.
Currently ranked 29th on the ATP world rankings, Anderson has a 15-5 match record this year, despite taking time off for minor wrist surgery.
He fired down eight aces against Carreno-Busta and won an impressive 85% of points on his first service.
Anderson has not yet come up against Zemlja, who is ranked 55th in the world.
