Victory sees Anderson taking on Aussie Open champ
- Updated: March 11, 2014
His run of good form continuing, Kevin Anderson moved through to the fourth round of the BNP Paribas Masters on Monday, writes Mark Etheridge.
He needed three sets but overcame the disappointment of losing the first set to see off Russian qualifier Evgeny Donskoy 4-6 6-0 6-3.
Seeded 17th for the tournament, Anderson now faces an enormous challenge in the formidable shape of Stanislas Wawrinka in the fourth round.
It was Wawrinka who downed Rafael Nadal to win the Australian Open, the year’s first grand slam of the year, in January.
The Swiss ace beat Italian Andreas Seppi in straight sets, 6-0 6-2 to come up against Anderson.
Anderson is yet to beat Wawrinka in three encounters, the most recent being a three-set defeat at the Shanghai Masters in China last year.
