Cape Town - South African tennis star Kevin Anderson has moved up one spot to No 8 on the official ATP rankings.

This follows his run to the quarter-finals of last week’s Indian Wells Masters.

There Anderson lost to Croatia’s Borna Coric to miss out on the opportunity of reaching his first Masters 1000 semi-final.

It was however enough for the South African to jump one spot in the latest rankings.

Anderson’s current ranking has seen him equal his career-best which he first achieved in February this year.

The 31-year-old will now set his sights on this week’s Miami Masters where another deep run is not out the question.
