Yuki Bhambri loses to Anderson in Citi Open quarters

Yuki Bhambri

In a high-quality contest, 45th-ranked Anderson seemed to have frittered away his chances when he wasted a first match point in the second set but regrouped mentally and even survived a match point against him in the deciding tiebreak.

"It was a pretty good match overall". But most importantly I was able to get the win and give myself a shot at the title tomorrow.

It may be recalled here that prior to this loss Bhambri had a stellar campaign and had recorded one of the biggest wins of his career when he defeated Gael Monfils 6-3, 4-6, 7-5. I felt I did quite a few things well today, couple things I thought I could have done a little bit better. "I'd like to break back into the top 100 by the end of the year and play as many big events as possible".

Anderson and Bhambri have never faced each other before. He comes in and attacks.

Anderson has bounced back after injury, and he continues to claw back up the rankings, and this win shows that he has the level to compete with the world's best. "It's a challenge", Anderson said. Although no one was broken in the second set, Thiem managed to break Anderson twice to make the score 4-3 in his favor.

Anderson endured a three-hour rain delay and saved a match point before firing his 21st ace to finish off seventh-ranked Thiem 6-3, 6-7 (6/8), 7-6 (9/7) after two hours and 46 minutes and reach the Washington hardcourt quarter-finals. "I just didn't get the feel of the serve".

Third-seeded Milos Raonic, the 2014 Citi Open champion, won a lengthy first-set tiebreak on the way to beating Marcos Baghdatis 7-6 (7), 6-3, and eighth-seeded Jack Sock beat fellow American Jared Donaldson 7-6 (6), 6-2.
