Sec­ond-seeded An­der­son into Win­ston-Salem semis

The Pak Banker - - INTERNATIONAL BUSINESS/SPORTS -

Sec­ond-seeded South African Kevin An­der­son pow­ered into the semi-fi­nals of the US Open tune-up tour­na­ment at Win­ston-Salem on Thurs­day with 6-2, 7-6 (7/1) win over Borna Coric.

An­der­son im­proved to 6-0 in quar­ter- fi­nal matches in 2015, fir­ing 10 aces and never fac­ing a break point in the 82minute tri­umph. He took full ad­van­tage of the 18-year-old Croa­t­ian s er­rors in the open­ing set, when Coric coughed up five dou­ble faults and won just three of 11 pos­si­ble points on his sec­ond serve.

In Fri­day's semi-fi­nals An­der­son will play un­seeded Tu­nisian Malek Jaziri, who up­set sixth-seeded Brazil­ian Thomaz Bel­lucci 6-3, 6-2.

Amer­i­can Steve John­son reached the fi­nal four with­out lift­ing a rac­quet as Lu YenH­sun of Tai­wan with­drew from their quar­ter-fi­nal with a back in­jury sus­tained in a three-set win over South Korea s Chung Hyeon.
