World No. 3 Rafael Nadal is through to the Australian Open quarterfinals after a 7-5, 6-1, 6-4 win over Kevin Anderson on Sunday, setting up another Grand Slam meeting with Tomas Berdych.
The 2009 Australian Open winner turned around the first set – and ultimately the match – in the 11th and 12th games.
Rafa saved five break points, clinching the game with an ace and service winner to go ahead 6-5. In the next, he broke Anderson’s serve, clinching the set when the South African hit a volley awkwardly into the net. (via AP)
