For the first time in his career, Kevin Anderson defeats Gael Monfils on his 6th attempt. :worship:
He'll play Roger Federer in the QF.

Anderson did well to not get sucked into the La Monf show and was actually pretty patient as Monfils really did his best to defend Anderson's big serves and shots. Great flashes from both and shown how Anderson has grown in general IMO. Finally gets to a round that gives him more than 250 points (360 points for a Slam QF). Faces Fed next though which I think would need his absolute best level and more to win it.

Exactly. Say what you want about botting, about worst slam finalist ever and similar forum bullshit. I watched Kandy today and I saw a real top player, who plays best shots when it matters, who doesn't shit his pants @ *5-6 and shows great fighting spirit and composure when it matters.

Kudos to both, I enjoyed this match very much and I was at the edge of my seat despite not even being a fan of neither player
