Everyday musings ….Life as I see it…….my space, my reflections and thoughts !!
Cruising along, on match point, it was Roger Federer all the way. With just a point away from what appeared to be an easy win, suddenly it all changed to end in an epic win for the towering South African Kevin Anderson.
He snatched victory from Federer in a grueling four and a quarter hour match, to march into the semi-finals of the Wimbledon 2018. The final scores reading 2-6, 6-7, 7-5, 6-4, 13-11. Sadly Federer’s quest for ninth Wimbledon title was shattered.
Playing against a name like Roger Federer itself acts as a psychological barrier. To top it the crowd’s constant cheering for Roger, didn’t dampen the spirit of the gangly South African. He remained calm and determined all through this amazing thriller.
Kudos to Anderson for believing in himself and pulling off this sensational win, which I am sure he will cherish for a long time to come. A riveting match with some scintillating volleys and big serves.
Take a bow, Kevin Anderson!
