Twitter reacts to Anderson's epic victory over Federer
Cape Town - It was dubbed as the match of the tournament.
South Africa's Kevin Anderson stunned defending champion Roger Federer in their Wimbledon quarter-final.
He clawed his way from two-sets down to win 2-6, 6-7 (5/7), 7-5, 6-4, 13-11 in four hours and 13 minutes.
The 32-year-old is the first South African man to make the last four at Wimbledon since Kevin Curren in 1985.
Anderson will now play American ninth seed John Isner on Friday for a place in Sunday's final.
