South Africa swept Kei Nishikori in London (6-0, 6-1) on Tuesday and took a big step forward in the quarterfinals.
In the Masters of Kevin Anderson (South Africa), Kei Nishikori (N. 9) scored a 6-0, 6-1 victory over Roger Federer in the fourth round.
Anderson, who defeated Dominic Thiem of Austria and played for two hours in two games, secured an excellent contract for the first time, inviting him for more than an hour of amazing success. His career at the tournament brought together eight of the best players of the season.
"It's one of the best games in my career. It's fantastic to succeed."
At the age of 32, South Africa (2.03m) tied the best tennis for two years as the 2016 season was repeatedly torn by knee and shoulder injuries. He made his second Grand Slam final in Wimbledon in July and is only one year since his first US Open in 2017. This is the fifth place in the world ranking this summer. .

Against Nashikori on Tuesday, Andersson doubled to 6-0 in three innings. Federer has achieved his goal at the expense of Argentine Gaston Gaodia in the semi-final in 13 years.
"It's one of the best games in my career. I hope you can play that game all year round.
"I got off to a good start and made him feel a lot of pressure during the game, I'm really back, he did not get a lot of free points, I got confidence while he was gradually losing," South Africa said.
Undoubtedly, he was still unable to explain what happened to Nishikori because of the influence he had just received. "I do not know why I did not do well or why I missed so much, I do not know, I lost a little bit, I did not feel the ball today, I hope to make it to the semi-finals for the third time in 2014 and 2016. The Japanese resigned.
