Anderson’s easy path into Delray Beach quarters
- Updated: February 20, 2014
Kevin Anderson’s run at the Delray Beach Open gained impetus on Wednesday when tricky opponent Ivo Karlovic was forced to retire with a stomach virus, writes Mark Etheridge.
The match only lasted one game as the fourth-seeded Anderson held his service before the giant Croatian was forced to call it quits with the stomach bug.
This means that Anderson, our top ranked singles player, now moves into the quarter-finals and is still on course for a second title at this $474,000 tournament, which also serves as his ‘home’ event as he lives in the area.
Anderson also won this tournament back in 2012 when he beat Marinko Matosevic of Australia. He has also won the Johannesburg Open.
He’ll now come up against the same Matosevic who beat eighth-seeded Lleyton Hewitt of Australia in the later game.
Matosevic also had a easier run into the quarters as former world No1 Hewitt retired with a right shoulder injury with the score 7-6 to the former.
Anderson will fancy his chances against Matosevic, never having lost to the Australian in three encounters.
