Kevin Anderson reaches 3rd round of Wimbledon

South Africa’s Kevin Anderson has reached the third round of Wimbledon after beating Italy’s Andrea Seppi in their second round encounter on Thursday.

Anderson had a two sets to one lead when rain interrupted his charge on Wednesday night, but came out firing on Thursday and quickly won the fourth set.

The final scoreline read 6-3, 6-7 (5/7), 6-3, 6-4 in Anderson’s favour.

Anderson, who also beat Seppi in last year’s Wimbledon second round, will next face Germany’s Philipp Kohlschreiber, who defeated Gilles Muller of Luxembourg 7-6 (8/6), 7-6 (7/4), 7-6 (7/3).

Anderson’s best effort at Wimbledon at date has been reaching the fourth round on three occasions – 2014, 2015 and 2017.

He’ll be eager to reach the quarter-finals for the first time, where he could come up against defending champion Roger Federer.
