Wimbledon 2018: Roger Federer Beaten by Kevin Anderson
Defending champion Roger Federer is out of Wimbledon after eighth seed Kevin Anderson fought back from two sets down in a gripping quarter-final.
Federer was on the ropes after dropping a comfortable two-set lead, and he even failed to take a match point chance in the third set, but the South African held his nerve to win a captivating contest 2-6 6-7 (5-7) 7-5 6-4 13-11.
The 2017 US Open finalist will meet Canada’s Milos Raonic or American John Isner in his first SW19 semi-final.
“I kept telling myself to keep believing. I said today is going to be my day. You need that mindset against Roger.
“I’m ecstatic. That’s what you work so hard for. Matches like that are very special.
