Anderson beats Isner in longest semi-final in history
13 July 2018, 11:22 | Charlene Valdez
It's not the first time that Isner has played to a marathon match - back in 2010, he defeated Nicolas Mahut 6-4, 3-6, 6-7 (7), 7-6 (7), 70-68 in the first round at Wimbledon in a match that lasted over 11 hours and was played over three days.
It was also the second longest match at a Slam, beating the six hours and 33 minutes which Fabrice Santoro spent seeing off Arnaud Clement in the 2004 French Open.
The South African won the opening set on a tie-break but lost two subsequent tie-breaks before he levelled the match 6-4 in the fourth.
That service hold - helped by a 129 miles per hour (207.6km/h) second serve - took the American to 100 service games unbroken at this Wimbledon.
6-4, 26-24 victory that lasted more than six hours, Anderson advances to the Wimbledon Final on Sunday, when he will play the victor of the other semifinal between Rafael Nadal and Novak Djokovic.
He then converted his first match point when Isner sent a shot wide - after 6 hours, 36 minutes.
John Isner and Kevin Anderson simply refused to lose. Anderson won the opening set before Isner bounced back to take the next two.
That inconsistency was eliminated in an absorbing final set before Anderson produced a moment of magic. The two went back and forth all the way to 12-all, essentially playing a full sixth and seventh set.
