The eighth-seeded Anderson needed four hours and 17 minutes to battle past the eight-time Wimbledon champion 2-6, 6-7 (5), 7-5, 6-4, 13-11 on Court 1 and will face the victor of the John Isner vs. Milos Raonic encounter in the semi-finals. After that, Federer began to struggle and Anderson unloaded his swings on every shot.
Federer's match point arrived when Anderson served at 4-5 in the third but, with the South African looming at the net, he made a hash of an attempted backhand pass. He ended the match with a serve down the middle that.
There was still the small matter of holding serve but a 28th ace helped settle Anderson's nerves and be brought up match point with a massive forehand before completing a remarkable victory with a first serve that Federer could not handle.
Federer was rattled, but the credit belonged to Anderson, who had disrupted his illustrious opponent's serve.
When he finished runner-up to Rafael Nadal at the US Open a year ago, he was the first South African man in a Slam final since Curren at the 1984 Australian Open. It rattled Federer, who blew the next match point and then double faulted on break point. "And I just couldn't get it done today so it's disappointing".
Kevin Anderson took deep breaths, big gulps of the early-evening air as he paced the court, preparing to serve for a place in the Wimbledon semifinals.

Three-time champion Novak Djokovic, meanwhile, reached his first semi-final at the majors in more than two years by seeing off Japan's Kei Nishikori 6-3, 3-6, 6-2, 6-2.
"I think the first warning was unnecessary", said Djokovic, who was sanctioned in the second set for spearing his racquet into the court. After making it to the fourth round of the Australian Open, an event where he's dominated historically, Djokovic lost in the first round of several masters events, including the Indian Wells Masters and the Miami Open. The 37-year-old vows to be back. "I am excited. It will be a good result for me". It wasn't until the Italian Open in May that he seemed to find his form again, ultimately losing in the semifinals to Rafael Nadal in the semifinals.
It means Nadal is now in his 35th Grand Slam quarterfinal and following previous years of injuries and bad luck at SW19, the Spaniard was pleased to reach the last eight. I couldn't really get the rallies going the way I wanted to, especially 1-2 punch wasn't working at all.
