Bhambri in quarter-final in career-best show

Continuing his dream run at the Citi Open in Washington, world number 200 Yuki Bhambri of India moved into the quarter-finals of the tournament. On the outside courts of the venue, the Indian defeated Guido Pella of Argentina 6-7 6-3 6-1 on Thursday.

He will now face world number 45 Kevin Anderson of South Africa in the next round.
Bhambri had completed a sensational win over world number 22 and defending champion Gael Monfils of France on Wednesday. He took one hour and 51 minutes to register the 6-3 4-6 7-5 upset win over the sixth-seed player. Also, Bhambri had qualified for the main draw of the ATP event.
This has been a fantastic week for the former junior world number one as he now has two big wins, one of which was probably the biggest of his career yet.
He can make it three in a row if he can overcome the stiff challenge of Anderson in the quarters.
Anderson came from behind to stun top seed Dominic Thiem 6-3 6-7(6) 7-6(7). The victory for Anderson came in a little under three hours. The 15th seed won the game on the third match point.
