Defeating Novak Djokovic in 2008 Kevin Anderson's favorite Miami moment

South Africa's Kevin Anderson still remembers his first big Masters 1000 win. The South-African beat tennis superstar Novak Djokovic in round two of the 2008 Miami Masters. Anderson won two qualifying to reach a Masters 1000 main draw for the first time in his career.

He then procedeed to beat Agustin Calleri in round one before he suprised the Serb in his following match at the tournament. The South-African's run eventually ended in round three as he just couldn't pull off another surprise win and beat Russian Igor Andreev.

World No. 9 Anderson has featured the Miami main draw eight times so far in his career. The 31-year-old reached the quarter-finals at Miami in 2011 where he lost to Djokovic. Anderson, who was defeaged by Croatian rising star Borna Coric in the Indian Wells Masters quarter-finals, now looks forward to his upcoming Miami campaign.

"Miami was the first Masters series that I ever played...back in 2008. It was the year that I beat Novak Djokovic. Obviously huge win...that was 10 years ago. I still think that's probably my favorite moment down there," Anderson recalled in the MadeInMiami moment.
