Anderson 'on song' for Murray

London - Kevin Anderson warmed up for his Wimbledon clash on Monday against reigning champion Andy Murray with a braai and some tunes on the guitar.

Anderson, on a career-high ranking of 18, posted a picture of himself on Twitter enjoying a taste of home.

"A proper South African braai to kick off the weekend right!," he said in the accompanying caption.

The 28-year-old, born in Johannesburg, should feel right at home in Wimbledon. The southwest London suburb is one of the heartlands for South African ex-pats in the city.

The big-serving right-hander, who stands 2.03 metres tall, has also been relaxing before his Centre Court clash by learning to play the guitar.

"That's something I enjoy doing. My mum keeps asking me to play her some tunes, but right now I'm just learning all the different notes," he told the Wimbledon website.

"I've got a travel electric guitar which I take on the road with me. My acoustic guitar is a bit too big so that's at home."

Anderson is looking to become the first South African to reach the quarter-finals since Wayne Ferreira in 1994.

Ferreira was the last South African to reach the Wimbledon fourth round in 2000.
