Tennis world number 3, Andy Murray has ended his US Open campaign with a devastating loss to South African, Kevin Anderson.
Anderson, ranked number 15, handed Murray a 7-6 (5), 6-3, 6-7 (2), 7-6 (0) beating in the fourth round match.
It was, fittingly, the longest match of the tournament, at 4 hours, 18 minutes.
Anderson finished with 25 aces and, more importantly, won 79 percent of his first-service points. With the score 5-0 in the ultimate tiebreaker, he cracked his hardest serve of the night, a 138 mph ace that barely grazed the white line.
Anderson also managed to save eight of the 11 break-point opportunities Murray had against him. Meanwhile, Anderson was able to convert four of his nine chances.
The match was the longest match of the tournament, lasting for 4 hours, 18 minutes.
Anderson will play Stan Wawrinka in the first quarter finals of his career. The match will also be his 10th match in 16 days. (ESPN)
