Kevin Anderson (SA)
 
This guy from South Africa looks well on his way to making an impression in professional tennis. He is 21 years old (18/05/1986) and did well in the US college circuit earlier this year (2007). In the month of June he won a strong futures tournament and reached the final in another. Today he is in the final of Winnetka Challenger after coming through qualifying and probably has a good chance to win this event.

He is tall (1.95) and slim but I don't know much about how he plays. But his form profile and improvement looks very promising. Currently ranked 419 he will get into the 200's next week and should get into the top-200 this year, maybe even better.

Great player from Illinois College! Impressing!!! I think he has still one year on colleges left??? Or not?

Kevin has a huge game, he should definitely crack the top 100. He's got a screaming forehand, huge serve, but his movement and backhand are suspect. I think he might have been playing through an injury a few months ago. He's also taller than 1.95m by the way, he's 6'7" which is about 2m.

Kevin is doing great :worship:
Besides being at a career high 175 in the world, he won three matches to qualify for Las Vegas. This included being Mischa Zverev, who is ranked 76 in the world. Keep it up Kevin :D

Las Vegas Q: Kevin Anderson d. [1] Mischa Zverev 6-4 7-6(3)

Kevin! :banana:

He is the hitting partner of WTA Tour player Patty Schnyder, who is my favorite player. Naturally, I am drawn to him. :lol: Seems like he is making a name for himself on the ATP Tour now, hope he wins some matches in the main draw. Good luck Kevin!

By the way, the abbreviation for South Africa is RSA, not SA. :p

Re: Kevin Anderson (SA)
 
He is actually not Patty's hitting partner, but her hitting partner is from South Africa and his last name is Anderson. But I will continue to follow Kevin since I have come to like him while thinking he is someone he isn't. :lol:

Las Vegas 1R: [Q] Kevin Anderson def. [6] Michael Llodra 6-2 7-6(2)

Wow, Kevin! :banana:

Didn't expect that at all. Great result for him. John Isner in the second round.

Las Vegas 2R: [Q] Kevin Anderson d. John Isner 7-6(2) 7-5

:banana:

Huge week for him, and winning lots of tiebreakers too. :lol:

He plays Korolev in the next round, so I can't say good luck, but I hope the match is close at least.

:lol: Yeah, but I didn't expect him to do so well this week :o, especially after almost losing to Nick Lindahl in qualifying :tape:

A good chance for Kev to get into the DC tie in April now!

Ivanatis 03-08-2008 07:57 PM

Re: Kevin Anderson (SA)
 
he's in the final :)

he will play either Canas or Querrey for the title

I would prefer Querrey as Kevin did well against Isner and Canas for sure has a lot more weapons to attack Kevin's serve
