Anderson hopes to win his first grand slam title and is in his first grand slam final appearance of his career.
Speaking of his own performance at the US Open - where he reached the semi-finals of a Grand Slam for the first time, ' the Spaniard added 'Of course.
The 31-year-old, ranked 32 in the world, is the lowest-ranked major singles finalist since 38th-ranked Jo-Wilfried Tsonga reached the 2008 Australian Open final.
Rafael Nadal is coming off a four sets win over Juan Martin Del Potro that took 33 games to decide.
It's so hard to see Carreno Busta competing with the on-fire serve of Anderson.
The 6ft 8in Anderson needed some inspiration and he found it in the second set with a backhand cross-court victor that brought him level at one set all.
Anderson and Carreno Busta have played each twice before in their career, and the South African won both those matches. The pressure seemed to have overwhelmed him as he threw in his first double fault of the match at 30-30, gifting Anderson a set point.
Anderson earned a critical break in the fifth game of the fourth set, taking control of the match for good when the Spaniard shanked a forehand wide on break point.
It was a string of six straight service holds which followed before Carreno Busta served to stay in the set at 5-6 down. I think just my emotion at the end summed it up.
"It was an unbelievably tough match on one of the biggest stages in tennis".
I am proud of Kevin for sticking it out and surviving in one of the toughest global sports.
He said: "I really don't know what to say right now".
The key to this match, however, will be the battle between Anderson's serve and Carreno Busta's return.
However, he had several troubles trying to consolidate the break as he failed to find his first serves when it mattered, coupled with the fact that Carreno Busta was playing some unbelievable tennis after he came up with two impressive passing winners during that game itself, including one on break point which allowed him to break straight back. He thanked his family for their support after his win on Friday, with brother Greg getting a special mention for nurturing his Grand Slam dream from a young age. "I've put in a lot of work, so it feels good to reach a milestone I haven't before".
It's the furthest either man has ever gone in a Grand Slam tournament. He didn't drop a set through his first five matches. Del Potro was the U.S. Open champion in 2009, when he beat Nadal in the semifinals and Roger Federer in the final.
In this era when players are winning grand slam titles well into their thirties, Anderson nearly doesn't qualify as a late bloomer.
