20-time Grand Slam champion Roger Federer put on a master-class during his 6-0 6-4 win over Kevin Anderson in the Miami Open quarter-finals on Thursday.

The Swiss ace conceded just five points on his first serve and broke his big-serving South African opponent as many times during the lopsided battle that lasted one hour and 25 minutes.

Apart from the numbers, Federer produced a moment of brilliance during the fifth game of the first set.

After somehow managing to return fast and wide forehands from Anderson at the net, the duo was involved in a net rally. And Federer just walked through it (see video below).

No wonder, the crowd couldn’t stop cheering on, a gesture that was acknowledged by the man himself.

Meanwhile, Federer will face Denis Shapovalov of Canada in the semi-finals on Friday.

“I have always enjoyed playing against teenagers,” he said of the 19-year-old. “I think it’s very exciting because of that. They are not just young, but they are very good as well.

“They are nice guys. It should be hopefully good semi-finals.”
