Pablo Carreno Busta vs Kevin Anderson: US Open Semifinal preview and prediction

Pablo Carreno Busta vs Kevin Anderson: US Open Semifinal preview and prediction”

Spaniard Pablo Carreno Busta said playing in the shadow of Rafael Nadal, his country's most celebrated tennis player, has helped to keep the pressure off him as he has quietly advanced to the semi-finals of the US Open.

Kevin Anderson fought back to beat Pablo Carreno Busta at the US Open and become South Africa's first Grand Slam singles finalist in more than 30 years.

While victories over JC Aragone, Ernests Gulbis, Borna Coric and the unsafe Paolo Lorenzi were all high quality, it was the quarter-finals here he really appeared to hit his stride. "I'm going to allow myself tonight to really celebrate tonight's win".

He might benefit from picking Nadal's brains before his semi-final match against powerful South African Kevin Anderson tomorrow morning.

Carreno Busta has never reached a major semifinal.

Alabama returns to action Saturday, Sept. 9, with its home opener against Fresno State at Bryant-Denny Stadium. While Alabama's offense struggled to finish for most of the first half , its defense came ready to play.

On the other side, Vandeweghe remains a constant factor when it comes to Grand Slam events. Anderson broke on the next point. He took the set when the Spaniard double-faulted at 5-6, 30-all and Anderson then smacked a forehand victor into the corner on set point. "He played so smart from the second set till the end of the match", Del Potro said.

In the final set Carreno Busta battled hard, producing some incredible shots as the game went deep, but he was unable to prevent Anderson from reaching the final.

The third continued the trend of Carreno Busta having to work hard on serve, as evidenced by him coming from 0-40 down to hold in his first service game of the set.

It was now the South African making all the running, earning six break points in the third set, albeit needing a Carreno Busta double fault to get over the line.

Seven-time Grand Slam champion Venus Williams, this year's Australian Open and Wimbledon runner-up, faces two-time Wimbledon champion Petra Kvitova later for a berth in Thursday's women's semi-finals.

After winning that game, Muguruza gained a little confidence and definitely gave Kvitova a hard time closing the match out. To be able to come out here and do what she needs to do, to clear her head, it's such a lovely thing to see".

But it is Anderson and his huge serve - he has reached 137 miles per hour during the tournament - that has come through to the final on the bottom half.

World number one Nadal, the 2010 and 2013 champion, enjoys an 8-5 career edge over Del Potro, who knocked out Roger Federer in the quarter-finals.

Kevin Anderson began his US Open campaign against Juan Cruz Aragone of the United States, registering a comfortable win in straight sets 6-3, 6-3, 6-1. He served 22 aces to one for Carreno Busta, with a fastest serve of 135 miles per hour.

Now he has a chance to claim a Slam trophy on the same Arthur Ashe Stadium court where boyhood idol Pete Sampras captured the last of his 14 major crowns in 2002.
