Kevin Anderson rallied from two sets down to shock Roger Federer 2-6, 6-7 (5), 7-5, 6-4, 13-11 and move into the Wimbledon 2018 semi-finals on Wednesday after a four-hour war on Court No. 1.

After an imperious Federer blew him away in the opening set, Anderson made things tricky for the Swiss legend in the second. He forced a tiebreak but, despite losing the first mini-break, Federer turned things around to go two sets ahead. 

Anderson’s comeback started here, however, and the South African found his distance with the serve to win back-to-back sets and level. Wimbledon rallied behind both stars, but Anderson roared on to the biggest result of his career after a thrilling contest.

He’ll face either Milos Raonic or John Isner in their semi-final on Friday.
