The first two quarterfinals of the Newport tournament take place this Thursday. And the posters are pretty enticing. A duel of “ghosts” particularly attracts attention. Jack Sock and Kevin Anderson fought a great battle but it was the South African who ended up winning by the score (5) 6-7, 6-2, 6-4. The American did not give up but Kevin Anderson was too solid especially on his service. With 20 aces and 90% points won behind his first ball, the former Wimbledon finalist was just too strong. He will face another big server in the semi-finals in the person of Alexander Bublik.

In the first quarter-final of the day, Alexander Bublik easily got the better of a Jason Jung yet in full confidence. As often, the Kazakh player, 37th in the world, was very solid on serve with a 22/26 behind his first and only one break point to save. He is the first player to reach the last square on the Newport turf.
