Anderson splits from coach

Cape Town - South Africa's top tennis player, Kevin Anderson, has parted ways with his coach of almost three years, Louis Vosloo.

Anderson, the current world No 37, won two ATP tournaments since he started working with Vosloo in April 2010.

“It’s been a great experience working with Louis," the 26-year-old Anderson told the Tennis World website.

"I feel like I have improved immensely under his guidance and will always respect and look up to him as a coach and a friend. He helped me grow as a person, both on and off the court. I wish him all the best in his future endeavours.”

Vosloo said it was an honour for him to work with Anderson.

"We had three good years and really enjoyed it," Vosloo told the Volksblad website. "I'm thankful for having the opportunity to help him move from 100 to 28th in the world."

Anderson reached a career-high of No 28 on the ATP rankings in March this year.

Despite the split, Vosloo insists there's no hard feelings between the two.

"We both learned a lot from each other and will remain good friends," he said.

Anderson earlier this year infuriated the South African public when he opted against representing his country in Davis Cup.

He made himself unavailable for the World Group playoff against Canada in September because of a proclaimed knee injury, but was then confirmed as an entrant in the lucrative World Team Tennis Finals extravaganza in Charleston, United States, at the same time the Davis Cup tie was due to take place.
