Anderson wins… but now for Berdych!
- Updated: June 27, 2013
Twenty-seventh seed, Kevin Anderson has achieved his best progress yet at Wimbledon after moving into the third round in London on Thursday.
Our top-ranked single player, Anderson easily overpowered Polish qualifier Michal Przysiezny.
Despite a small hiccup in the second set he secured a straight set win, going through 6-4 7-6 6-4 victory in the second-round match.
But the towering South African now comes up against his nemesis, in the shape of world number six Tomas Berdych of the Czech Republic a man who Anderson has met on so many occasions in the last year and an opponent who he still has to work out how to beat.
The two have met on no less than eight occasions but in Anderson’s favour is that none have been on grass, Anderson’s most favoured surface.
