Kevin Anderson celebrates his victory over Roger Federer at Wimbledon.

Kevin Anderson beat Roger Federer 2-6, 6-semi-finals.
•Federer had a match point at 5-4 in the third set
•This is Anderson’s first win over Federer in five meetings.

Kevin Anderson produced an astonishing fightback from two sets down to beat eight-time champion Roger Federer 2-6 6-7(5) 7-5 6-4 13-11 in a quarter-final cliffhanger at Wimbledon on Wednesday.

The big South African’s hopes looked forlorn as Federer skipped through the opening two sets on Court One with his usual panache but he turned the match on its head to cause the biggest shock yet in a tournament full of upsets.

It was his first win against Federer at the fifth attempt and means he is the first player representing South Africa to reach the semi-final here since Kevin Curren in 1983.

He won the third set to snap Federer’s 34-set winning streak at Wimbledon and Federer was clearly shaken as Anderson dominated the fourth set to drag the 20-times Grand Slam champion into a decider.

Anderson stayed cool and sealed victory on his first match point with a powerful first serve whichwFederer could only return into the tramlines.
