Wimbledon 2018 -- Kevin Anderson wins men's semifinal match

13 July 2018

Fast food chain Nandos, which originated from South Africa, has pledged to give away free meals to people who share names with the two players, until Anderson is knocked out of the tournament or wins the final.

Melichar and Peschke will play the victor of the second semifinal between No. 3 seeds Barbora Krejcikova and Katerina Siniakova of the Czech Republic and the unseeded pair of Alicja Rosolska of Poland and Abigail Spears of the U.S.

Anderson served for the match and it ended with Isner planting a forehand wide before both exhausted players embraced at the net. Isner was serving first, with Anderson then having to hold each time in order to stay alive in the match.

Anderson, 32, will face either Rafael Nadal or Novak Djokovic in Sunday's final. The former Bulldog broke right back to even the set once again.

Isner is 33 years old now, a veteran on the ATP Tour.

Isner jumped out to a 5-0 lead in the tiebreaker and converted his third set point with an ace.

Isner took a medical timeout after holding for 2-1 and had his finger taped before resuming play.

Because of the length of the first match, that semifinal will be played with the roof closed.

In a match full of booming serves and countless aces, the first three sets were all decided on tie-breaks.

The ball was in Kevin Anderson's court when he defeated Roger Federer on Wednesday to book a semifinal spot in the 2018 Wimbledon. Though Raonic outgunned Isner in that respect - 31 to 25 - he was unable to see through service games as convincingly.
