Yuki Bhambri sinks Guido Pella to enter Citi Open quartersYuki Bhambri, ranked 200th in world rankings, recovered from a set down and registered what turned to be an emphatic 6-7, 6-3, 6-1 win over Guido Pella.
Continuing with his great run, India's Yuki Bhambri produced yet another stunning performance as he defeated Guido Pella of Argentina to enter the quarter-finals of Citi Open in Washington DC.
Bhambri, who entered the tournament as a qualifier, stunned world No.22 and sixth-seeded Gael Monfils of France in his earlier match on Thursday.
Bhambri, ranked 200th in world rankings, recovered from a set down and registered what turned to be an emphatic 6-7, 6-3, 6-1 win over Pella in a match that lasted for two hours and 10 minutes.
The 25-year-old gave a tough fight to his Argentinean counterpart in the first set but couldn't win it.
However, in the next two sets, the Delhi lad stepped up his game and won them rather easily.
Bhambri will now lock horns with 15-seeded Kevin Anderson, who tamed Dominic Thiem of Austria, for a place in the semi-finals.
