Anderson, the current world No 11, missed last year’s Australian Open due to injury, but made a surge up the rankings upon his return to action in 2017.

He reached the US Open final before losing to world No 1 Rafael Nadal.

Anderson also started 2018 strong, reaching the final of the Maharashtra Open in Pune, India last week, before losing to Frenchman Gilles Simon.

On Wednesday, Anderson lost 4-6, 6-3, 3-6 to Cypriot Marcos Baghdatis at the Kooyong Classic exhibition event in Melbourne but was quick to return to the practice courts.

He tweeted a picture of his training session at Melbourne Park, the site of the year’s first Grand Slam which starts next Monday.
