Cape Town - South African tennis star Kevin Anderson is the top seed at this week’s New York Open in Long Island.
The 250-level indoor hard-court tournament was previously called the Memphis Open, but has relocated to Long Island in 2018, ensuring the continuation of one of the ATP World Tour’s longest-running tournaments in the United States.
Anderson, the current world No 11, heads a field which includes Americans Sam Querrey and John Isner as second and third seeds respectively.
Japan’s Kei Nishikori, a former world No 4, is the fifth seed having recently made his return from a long injury layoff.
Anderson, meanwhile, will have a bye in the first round and in the second round will face either America's Mackenzie McDonald or a qualifier.
