What a great draw this is Devvarman, Bellucci and now Gasquet.

He should beat Gasquet quite comfortably as well Come on Kevin!

Anyone know why he's suddenly taking the rest of the year off (at least as far as the ATP tour is concerned)?

How do you know he's taking the rest of the year off? He plans to play Basel qualis after a week off.

BTW, he's in the final of Seoul, hope he wins it. Would be 125 very welcome points.

That's true, but I still can't find much about it.

Maybe he is going to undertake the operation on his foot he talked about earlier. To be ready for the next season. If so, wise decision.

Too bad he lost the final to Lu today.

Top 50 for the first time. Should be able to easily stick around as the next two tournaments he's playing, he's not defending anything.

Tough loss in Memphis, could have picked up 90 points or more there. But he will be well rested for Delray, hope he does well there. Probably a lot of contenders there who are tired from Memphis and San Jose.

Hi. I had a chance to do a super quick interview with Kevin in Memphis and I though you guys might like to see it.

Tennis Idol: “Pete Sampras. He was such an inspiration and I loved watching him play. In fact I was lucky enough in 2008 to be invited to have lunch with him at his house in Beverly Hills. It was a great feeling for me.”

Favorite Music/Songs on Ipod: “Rap, Eminem, Classic 80s and even a little 70s (Abba!)”

Nicknames: “Kev Dog and Kevo”

Sports Outside of Tennis: “Since I played college tennis at Illinois I became an (American) football fan when I was in school there. Also I am a big Chicago Bears fan and try to catch their games when I am traveling and during the off season.”

Dream Doubles Partner: “Well I guess maybe someone who plays a similar style of tennis to me. A big hitter. Actually, though, maybe I would just want to play with Federer.”

How About Mixed Doubles: “Hmmm I don’t want to just give the expected answer here. Maybe I shouldn’t answer this one.”

Special Pre-Match Rituals: “None really. Sometimes I listen to music or just try to stay relaxed and positive.”

Friends on Tour: “Well I am close to all the South African guys even though I don’t get to see them as much now. Also Ryler DeHeart, who I played with at Illinois, Michael Russell and Somdev Devvarman. I like all the Americans really but it’s tough to have very close friends on the tour because they are all your competitors at the end of the day.”

Kevin comes from a close family and his parents were inspirational in helping him get where he is today. His fiancee from Chicago is a great support as well. Younger brother Gregory also plays tennis at Morehead State University in Kentucky. He has reached a career high singles ranking of 40 after winning his first ATP title in Johannesburg this year.

Given the lack of posts the past year on Kevin, he's definitely deserving of a full rundown of how he's gotten to the point he's at today in his career. 2011 was a breakout season for Kevin at the ATP tour with a 42-27 record and his first career title in his home country tournament in Johannesburg. Kevin made his first career QF in a Masters 1000 event in Miami, defeating Davydenko and Isner along the way. He also advanced to two SFs in Brisbane and Vienna, and five other QF appearances outside of Miami, as well as defeated Murray in the second round of Montreal. He finished 2011 a career-high #32 in the ranking.

He has started 2012 maintaining the same consistency he had during 2011, with an 11-6 record and earning his second career title in Delray Beach, beating Roddick and Isner in back-to-back rounds before defeating Matosevic in the finals. He has also made the QF of San Jose and R3 of the Australian Open. Kevin reached a career-high #28 a few weeks ago and is currently ranked #33 in the rankings.

Kevin has been a very consistent player the last few years and it's only a matter of time before he make a big run on a big stage. In the meantime, as long as injuries or a loss of confidence don't get in the way, Kevin looks very capable of maintaining his very consistent results and becoming a mainstay in the top 30/35 of the rankings. Kevin received a WC into Houston next week, and that will be his next event as the tour heads to clay. Kevin went 5-6 on clay last season so he'll be looking to improve that number in 2012. GL to Kevin in Texas!

There has been some controversy regarding Kevin's decision to apply for a US green card and withdraw from the South African Davis Cup squad. Read from the man himself as to why he made the decision:

Anderson says why he cannot play Davis Cup
South African tennis player busy applying for a green card and cannot leave the US

http://www.businessday.co.za/article...aspx?id=168768

DURBAN — South African tennis player Kevin Anderson has defended his decision to withdraw from the Davis Cup team for this weekend’s match against Slovenia and doubt remains as to whether he will represent the country in future ties.

Anderson, who is based in the US, is in the process of applying for an American green card and this means he cannot leave the country while the application is being processed.

SA suffered further blows with the withdrawal of world No124 Rik de Voest and ladies star Chanelle Scheepers for the Fed Cup, the women’s corresponding tournament.

SA’s bid for a place in the Davis Cup World Group for the first time since 1998 is at risk of falling at the first hurdle, unless the young and inexperienced squad can upset the Slovenians in Soweto. Also, none of SA’s top tennis players will be eligible to represent the country at the London Olympic Games in July.

International Tennis Federation rules stipulate that only players who have made themselves available for Davis Cup or Fed Cup action in two of the past four years will be eligible to compete in the games.

Anderson, who married an American last year, told Business Day that the green card would enable him to travel in and out of the US easier than with other visas.

"The main reason I withdrew from the Davis Cup is that I am in the process of applying for a green card, which takes three to four months," Anderson said. "During this time you are not allowed to leave the US.

"After three years I am eligible for citizenship, and I will most likely apply for dual citizenship. In order to play Davis Cup for another country you need to be a permanent citizen, not be a resident — which is what the green card offers."

Anderson rose to a career best world No28 ranking after winning the Delray Beach title in February — knocking out top Americans Andy Roddick and John Isner — for his second ATP career title.

"Every decision I have made thus far has been what is best for my career, on and off the court," he said. "I believe this has helped me get to where I am now and will help me get to where I want to get.

"Moving forward, I will have the same feelings, where if I can play Davis Cup I will, as long as it doesn't affect my schedule and is financially viable. I fully understand and support Chani’s (Chanelle Scheepers’s) position and decisions she has had to make along the way.

"Tennis is a tough sport, played far away from the home soil of SA …. We are forced to base ourselves in other countries. We unfortunately do not have the backing and support from Tennis SA and so therefore need to make decisions based on what is best for our careers."

While the Johannesburg-born star has consistently risen to prominence on the world tennis circuit over the past year, the game in SA has steadily suffered setbacks.

Last year, the South African Open was scrapped from the ATP tour calendar to ease the playing schedule and this year’s Sowetan Open was cancelled after the City of Johannesburg pulled its funding.

Tennis SA president Bongani Zondi said the organisation’s focus would be on developing more young and capable players who can carry the national flag in the absence of prominent stars.

He also dismissed Anderson’s claims that the organisation had failed to provide the necessary support to tennis players, adding that Tennis SA had always contributed to players’ expenses "even if the financial support was not 100%".

"I have told the (Tennis SA) board that we need to produce more players," Zondi said.

"We must have a pool of more than 10 players that play at the highest level, so that we don’t have headaches when we have situations such as the one we are facing.

"That is why we have even brought in young players for this weekend’s tie.

"We want to develop those players, even if we lose the tie; the bigger picture is that they will have gained valuable experience."
