Anderson, who lost just eight points on serve, could become the first African player to reach the semifinals of the season-ending tournament.
Roger Federer staved off elimination from the ATP Finals as the six-time champion eased to a 6-2, 6-3 win over Dominic Thiem on Tuesday (Nov 13).
It was a landmark moment for Anderson, who has set a new career-high of 47 victories in a calender year. He will rarely have had such an easy outing as this one throughout his memorable 2018.
The big-serving South African has won both of his opening matches but faces Roger Federer on Day 5 of the ATP Finals, where it's all to play for. "I mean, he was also playing well but I think I gave him too many free points". "But I was able to settle very quickly and find a really good rhythm, taking care of my serve games nicely, created quite a few opportunities on his serve."World number one Novak Djokovic, who heads the Guga Kuerten group, will be in action on Monday against John Isner while Alexander Zverev takes on Marin Cilic".

Today was a awful match. "I just didn't feel the ball". "He played well, but something was wrong".

But Nishikori seemed to have nothing left after that effort.
With this result, the semi-final scenarios in the Lleyton Hewitt group got a little more complicated as no player has sealed his berth in the last four, nor has anyone been eliminated, with Anderson still being the front-runner.
After suggesting that the whole debate has been taken out of context, Federer told reporters there is no obvious pattern in the way the timing of his matches is arranged.
