2018-04-04 18:28

Cape Town - South African tennis star Kevin Anderson has announced he will skip next week’s US Men's Clay Court Championships in Houston.

Anderson, the current world No 8, fared well in the two most recent Masters 1000 events in Indian Wells and Miami, reaching the quarter-finals on both occasions.

He will however miss his first scheduled clay court event of 2018, but is expected to play in the Masters 1000 clay event in Monte Carlo from April 16.

Anderson did play in the ATP World Tour 250 event in Houston last year, but lost in the first round to Spain's Fernando Verdasco.
