Cape Town - Kevin Anderson has progressed through to the Wimbledon final after beating American John Isner in a five-set thriller semi-final on Friday.
Anderson, who appeared in his first semi-final at the All England Club, won 7-6 (8/6), 6-7 (5/7), 6-7 (9/11), 6-4, 26-24 onCentre Court.
It was the second longest Wimbledon match ever - and longest Wimbledon semi-final - as it lasted 6 hours and 35 minutes.
The semi-final was deep into the fifth set when the new record was set, although it was a long way behind the 11 hours and 5 minutes it took Isner to beat Nicolas Mahut in the 2010 first round.
For the first time in 91 years, there will be a South African man in a Wimbledon singles final.
The 32-year-old stunned the tennis world on Wednesday when he beat defending champion Roger Federer in the Wimbledon quarter-finals, while Isner beat Canadian Milos Raonic in his quarter-final match.
In the second semi-final also at Centre Court, world No 1 Rafael Nadal takes on three-time winner, Novak Djokovic.
