Cape Town - The look on Kevin Anderson's face as he booked his place in Sunday's US Open final was priceless.

But regardless of what happens in that match, Anderson has put South African tennis on the centre of international stage for the first time since Wayne Ferreira.

Anderson has not beaten Nadal in four attempts, but that will count for nothing when the two lock horns when it matters most.
