History and Rafa Nadal is against an upset by Kevin Anderson
Sep 11, 2017, 00:33
He maintained his grip in the fourth set with breaks in the fourth and eighth games and as 12th seed Carreno Busta wilted, he broke again for 3-2 in the fourth in what proved the final blow.
He is the first South African in over 50-years to make it to the final of the US Open.
Rafa Nadal was at his awe-inspiring best as he recovered from a first set wobble to crush Juan Martin del Potro 4-6 6-0 6-3 6-2 in the US Open semi-finals on Friday and move within reach of a 16th grand slam title.
The South African tennis maestro will play in his very first Grand Slam final against Rafael Nadal on Sunday.
Anderson said: "It's definitely an wonderful feeling being in this position and I have worked very hard to get here". Anderson served out the match on his serve when Carreno Busta netted a forehand. The Spaniard has not been pushed past four sets in the tournament and has dropped just three sets en route to the final. She will end the season having reached two Major semis and a quarterfinal at Wimbledon.
It has been noticeable at the US Open how pumped up he has been throughout the event, something Tiley said reminded him of Anderson's college days.
This will be the second time in less than a month that Anderson will meet Carreno Busta. "It makes me feel good that I can hopefully fly a flag and show kids especially that if you work hard you can get there".
The likes of fourth seed Alexander Zverev, seventh seed Grigor Dimitrov and eighth seed Jo-Wilfried Tsonga then went out in the early rounds. "It's little things", Anderson said.
The momentum quickly changed in the second, however, a scorching forehand giving Anderson the break, only for Carreno Busta to hit straight back with a fine forehand down the line.
Will the big-server and former top-tenner from South African have too much to handle for Carreno Busta?
It's the furthest either man has ever gone in a Grand Slam tournament.

However, his last loss at this stage came on the same NY hard courts in 2009 at the hands of Del Potro, who went on to shock five-time champion Federer in the final.
Neither Carreno Busta nor Anderson has played in a semifinal at any Grand Slam tournament.
This time, he takes on those two greats of the game in reverse order: del Potro beat Federer in the quarterfinals Wednesday.
