It was only the colossal serve from Kevin Anderson that made all the difference at crucial times of the match. Anderson hit 21 aces and that worked in his favour in the end.

Yuki has had a tough 2016 with most of his season ravaged by elbow injury. But the former junior Australian Open champion came to Washington DC this week to show what he is capable of! Gave a fantastic display of his massive talent. Hopefully this will inspire him to keep climbing higher.
