Dutchman Laurens Jan Anjema (pic le) upset 8th seed David Palmer (pic ri) in the 2nd round of the US Open to record his career-first Tour victory over the Australian former World Open Champion. “He was one of my idols when I was growing up, so to beat him for the first time in PSA is pretty special,” said the Dutch world No12, who will now join the quarter-finals in Philadelphis together with non-seed Mohd Azlan Iskandar, of Malaysia, Frenchman Thierry Lincou, Egyptian pair Amr Shabana and Mohamed El Shorbagy and the English trio Nick Matthew, James Willstrop and Peter Barker.
