Second-seeded South African Kevin Anderson locked up his sixth ATP quarter-final berth of the season with a straight-sets win over Jerzy Janowicz, while Taiwan’s Lu Yen-hsun beat South Korea’s Chung Hye-on 7-6 (7/1), 1-6, 7-5 on Wednesday at the Winston-Salem Open in North Carolina.
Lu booked a meeting with 13th-seeded American Steve Johnson, who upset third-seeded Frenchman Jo-Wilfried Tsonga 6-3, 4-6, 7-6 (7/4).
