Wimbledon 2014 R4: Andy Murray vs Kevin Anderson « on: June 27, 2014, 09:00 PM »

After an emphatic display in the third round from Andy, in which he dismantled the Spaniard Roberto Bautista Agut, Andy will next face South African big server Kevin Anderson. Anderson is a solid Top 20 player who has had some of the best years of his career as of late. This year he has posted goods results at the Australian Open, losing in the 4th round to Berdych, a final in Delray Beach, losing to Cilic, a final in Acapulco, losing to Dimitrov, as well as a QF and R4 appearance at Indian Wells and the French Open, losing to Federer and Ferrer respectively. Anderson poses many weapons in his repertoire, such as the big serve, as well as strong groundstrokes and some exceptional touch at the net. Anderson is quite an efficient all court player. This year is the best result of Anderson's career at Wimbledon, so he will be full of confidence coming into his match with Andy and will be seeking the opportunity to upset the 3rd seed.

This will be the third meeting between the two players, with the head to head tied at 1-1, with Anderson winning the last meeting three years ago in Montreal in straight sets. So Andy will be looking for revenge in this match.

Good intro,  Connor.

Andy will need to be aware of Anderson (serve) but I think he'll come through okay once he's got int  the right rhythm.

I think this will be a straightforward progression. I doubt if the previous loss has any bearing at all. Three years is a long time - and didn't he go into that tournament right on the back of Davis Cup duty?

Certainly hoping this next round will be a smooth progression for Andy into the quarters - I'll be there to see it! Saw Djokovic dismantle Anderson a few years back on Court no. 1, I forget which round ... On current form I wouldn't bet against Andy to do the same!  yay

Courage doesn't always roar - but wins Wimbledon

That loss to Anderson was in Andy's  post AO final loss slump. Andy was down, fed up and entirely out of sorts. He was losing to all sorts. If I'm not mistaken Donald Young beat him in the same period. Andy is fine and dandy now.

Anderson will be different, but Andy knows his game. He's also well used to the big servers. I suppose Anderson could nick a set if Andy isn't on his game, but I honestly can't see him troubling Andy for long.

Connor, I'm being pedantic, but Andy's career win/loss record is wrong there. I make it 452 wins now.

Sixteen straight wins at Wimbledon. That's exciting!

It won't register Wimbledon until after the tournament. Be patient.

Does Anderson have anything of weight to offer apart from his serve?  Given that Andy is one of the best returners in the game, I'm not surprised Anderson says he feels nervous about facing Andy on Monday. 

TJ - I too thought he'd lost to him in a post-AO slump (I thought it was Indian Wells) but it appears it was in Montreal in 2011 so am trying to remember what accounted for what was a pretty comprehensive defeat. Can someone with a better memory remember what happened there?

If you read the intro you would see I did say something about what Anderson provides.

   As I indicated above he came to Canada off a Davis Cup stint in UK following a heavy run at RG (SF)and Queens (won) and Wimbledon (SF) .  Just knackered I guess.

Nah it was well after that. You're thinking of Bogomolov Jr I think (who he lost to at Miami, having lost to Young in IW).

The thrashing to Anderson was at Montreal in his first tournament after losing to Nadal at Wimbledon (DC vs Luxembourg aside).

Andy does well vs guys like this. He's tall, so Andy will make him move, slice, keep the ball low. He'll get into Anderson's service games, too. I said four, but it could easily be straights.
