Goodnight.
...
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.
...
...
...
...
Final score: Anderson beats Bhambri, 6-4, 4-6, 6-3.
...
...
Yuki does try hard but a backhand down-the-line, that went wide, gifts the match to the South African.
...
Can his fortunes still change? Can he conjure up some magic here?
...
Anderson to serve for the match now.
...
An effortless service game from Yuki to hold for 3-5 but it might have come too late.
...
One break back is all he needs
...
Yuki closes the gap to just two games...2-4
...
Is Bhambri's magical run finally about to end?
...
Bhambri even forces a deuce with the 15th seed serving in the fifth game but it's all in vain. Anderson is successful in staving off the challenge and now has a massive 4-1 advantage.
...
Bhambri does get on the board in the decider but the Kevin juggernaut is in no mood to stop. The South African is cruising at 3-1
...
Bhambri can't....he is now trailing 0-3
...
He makes it 30-30 on the Anderson serve
...
Not the ideal start for the Indian but can he find some fightback here?
...
And he makes it even better as he breaks Bhambri to go up to 2-0
...
THIRD SET

Anderson doesn't falter this time and makes a good start to the decider..1-0
...
...
Anderson's first serve percentage considerably dropped in the second set.....from 74% in the first set, it slid to 57% in the second, allowing the Bhambri comeback further.
...
That one break of serve in the very first game was all that became the difference-maker between the two men
...
No hiccup at all from the Indian as he serves out the second set to 15....6-4 to Bhambri
...
Yuki is now one game away from taking the second set...5-3
...
And Kevin holds for 3-4...he has already notched up 16 aces!!
...
Bhambri is ahead 4-2..so far his serve has held up
...
Anderson holds and it is 3-2 to Bhambri
...
Some signs of vulnerability from the 25-year-old Indian but he holds on for 3-1.
...
Thanks to his serves, Anderson manages to weather the Bhambri storm for 1-2. Yuki still is a break up.
...
Anderson erases that but THE BHAMBRI FOREHAND IS ON FIRE AGAIN! He now erases the Anderson game point for deuce!
...
WHAT A FOREHAND PASS FROM BHAMBRI!!!!! He has a break point again!!!
...
AND HE DOES!!!! Yuki is up 2-0
...
So far looking good for the Indian in the 2nd set...Yuki is pumped up, moving well and hitting with confidence. Can he consolidate?
...
Yuki's smooth hitting really put the 15th seed under a lot of pressure and he buckled to concede the break.
...
Makes up for the opportunity that he lost in the opener.
...
1-0 for the Indian
...
And Yuki BREAKS!!!!!! And roars 'Come On'
...
SECOND SET

Now Bhambri has THREE break points on the Anderson serve!
...
The difference between the two players, was, however, the ability to convert the break point. While Bhambri squandered the only chance he had, Kevin didn't.
...
Bhambri played well throughout the set except for that last game. Sensing that Bhambri was under pressure, Anderson simply amped up the pressure and intensity of returns and advanced to the forecourt. Bhambri tried to pass him but failed.

Can the Indian brush off this setback to start the new set with positivity?
...
And the 15th seed successfully converts the only set point he had....set goes to the South African, 6-4.
...
Bhambri needs to be careful here....a double fault made a dent in his confidence and Anderson pounces on his opportunity to carve out a break point.
...
The 15th is serving a couple of aces per game. Up now at 5-4. Yuki will serve to stay in the set.
...
And Yuki too is inspired to come up with his third ace of the match and produces a flawless service game for 4-4.
...
Anderson just never gets tired of serving down aces...he so far has 7 of them....and with those gigantic serves, the 15th seed inches ahead to 4-3.
...
And once more the Indian is able to come through....3-3
...
Backhand's breaking down for Bhambri...30-30
...
And Anderson holds without much fuss for 3-2...nothing much to separate the two so far.
