Johannesburg - Top South African tennis player Kevin Anderson will be seeking to end a slump in form at next week's Shanghai Masters tournament, amid a stellar line-up.

Anderson's dip in consistency, with his world ranking having already slipped to 21st, reached a particular low this week, when he was beaten 6-4, 7-6 (2) by 81st-ranked Slovakian Lucas Lacko, coupled with a first-round doubles defeat adding to his misery.

But Anderson's current ranking will keep him out of the top 16 seeds and a lot might depend on what kind of draw he receives, with the likes of Novak Djokovic, Rafael Nadal, David Ferrer and Roger Federer all competing.
