Johannesburg – Kevin Anderson's shock 3-6, 6-4, 6-3 second-round upset of world No 4 David Ferrer at the Indian Wells Masters tournament on Saturday completed a notable achievement for South Africa's top tennis player.
Anderson can now boast a feat only a limited number of players on the highly-competitive ATP circuit have achieved – victories over three of the world's current top four players.
The 26-year-old, lying 37th in the ATP rankings, had previously upset current world number one Novak Djokovic at the Miami Masters event in 2009 and last year demolished Andy Murray, who is rated third, in straight sets at the Canadian Open Masters tournament.
Competing in only his second tournament since undergoing elbow surgery following this year's Australian Open, where he reached the fourth round, his victory over the tenacious Ferrer was one of the most impressive performances of his career.
He trailed 3-6, 4-4, with the diminutive Spaniard seemingly having the match within his grasp, but the South African fought back splendidly.
Anderson will play Finland's left-handed strokemaker Jarrko Nieminin, another upset winner at Indian Wells who coasted to a 6-1, 6-0 rout of Fernando Verdasco, in the third round on Monday. – Sapa
