Anderson advances to quarters in Acapulco
- Updated: February 27, 2014
Fresh from making the final of the Delray Beach Open in his ‘home’ state of California at the weekend, Kevin Anderson has moved into the quarter-finals┬á of the Mexican Open, writes Mark Etheridge.
Anderson, seeded fifth for this tournament, beat unseeded American Sam Querrey.
He won in straight sets, 7-6 (2) 6-4, with 11 aces coming his way en route to victory in a hour and 25 minutes at the $1.3-million Acapulco event.
The lanky Anderson’s first round victory came against French qualifier Stephane Robert, also in straight sets 6-2 7-6 (7).
Reward for victory is a match-up with top-seeded David Ferrer in the quarter-finals. Ferrer has beaten Kazakhstan’s Mihail Kukushikin and Spaniard Feliciano Lopes en route to the quarters.
Anderson came up against Ferrer on two occasions last year, winning at the ATP World Tour Masters 1000 in Indian Wells (three sets) and going down to the Spaniard, also in three sets, at the French Open at Roland Garros.
