Having gone two sets up on the back of big hitting from the baseline, sixth seed Anderson threw Schwartzman a lifeline in the contest while serving for the match at 5-4. His serve came undone again at 5-6 as Schwartzman took the third set.

The 25-year-old Schwartzman switched gears in the tie-break of a tight fourth set to level the contest at two sets apiece as a tiring Anderson failed to score a point.

With the momentum having swung his way, Schwartzman secured the decisive breaks in the final set and sealed a memorable victory with an ace in three hours and 51 minutes.

Schwartzman next faces top seed Rafa Nadal or Maximilian Marterer. He is tied 1-1 with Marterer and trails Nadal 0-5 in their previous meetings.
