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.
