Anderson took the third set on his third set point, serving a 132-mph ace to take a two-sets-to-one lead. "It's a fantastic feeling", Anderson, seeded 28, said after that win. I think he was very focused here, in practice and also in the matches.

Nonetheless, the adrenaline of Carreno Busta seemed to have suddenly shot up as he came up with some of his best serves to claim five consecutive points, letting out a huge roar after holding his serve narrowly.
