Draper is the first British boy to reach the singles final at Wimbledon since 2011 and is aiming to be the first British boys champion since Stanley Matthews in 1962. Before today, that match held the title of longest ever Wimbledon semi-final.
The 32-year-old South African advanced to the final after an official time of 6 hours and 36 minutes and a score of 7-6 (6), 6-7 (5), 6-7 (9), 6-4, 26-24. They combined for 102 aces: 53 by Isner, 49 by Anderson.

Jamie Murray and Victoria Azarenka beat the British pair of Jay Clarke and Harriet Dart 6-2 6-2 to storm into the mixed doubles final.
Isner appeared to be struggling at times from 12-all to 18-all, but he held firm on his serve as Anderson, playing his second-consecutive five-set match, found a second (or third or fourth) wind.
The 6-foot-10 Isner finally succumbed to the 6-foot-8 Anderson just before 8 p.m. local time in a grueling encounter full of plot twists in the longest men's semifinal in Wimbledon history. The final set was five minutes short of three hours, ending when-after many missed chances-Anderson broke Isner's.
Everyone knew the Wimbledon semifinal between John Isner and Kevin Anderson was going to be a slog, and it well and truly lived up to the billing.

At 6-5, Anderson saved a set point with a smash, and went on to take the first set 7-6 (8) in 63 minutes on two errors by his opponent.
Isner was the last remaining American in the men's bracket. Earlier, at 5-5, ninth seed Isner made it 100 straight service games unbroken in this year's tournament.
