Kevin Anderson: News

A South African tennis player, Kevin Anderson is one of the best players to represent the country in the international circuit. Standing tall at 6ft 8in, Anderson, at the peak of his prowess, was a very powerful server and had an aggressive forehand, both of which he used to attack his opponents. He turned pro in 2007. With his forceful groundstrokes and tight baseline play, Anderson slowly began his ascendency. He became a top-ranked South African player after making the finals of the 2008 Tennis Channel Open. In the same year, he played in his first major tournament when he qualified for the Australian Open. Anderson's first ATP Tour title came in 2011. He defeated Somdev Devvarman in the final and won the SA Tennis Open. Anderson broke into the top 10 in 2015 and continued his progress. Two years later, in the 2017 US Open, he reached his first major finals and became the lowest-ranked finalist in US Open history. The year 2018 saw Anderson achieving his career-high ranking when he became No.5. He also became the first South African since 1985 to achieve the same. Anderson became the President of the ATP Player Council in 2020.
