Cape Town - Kevin Anderson says he has no intention of playing Davis Cup for the United States.
READ: Semi-final a realistic goal for Anderson
The South African, who stunned the tennis world earlier this week when he beat Britain’s Andy Murray at the US Open, is in the process of becoming a US citizen.
Anderson's wife, Kelsey, is an American and he recently received his Green Card, but the chances of him representing the United States in Davis Cup appear to be slim.
The 29-year-old has made himself unavailable for selection for the South African Davis Cup team in recent years.
When probed on the matter following his Round of 16 win over Murray, Anderson told the US Open’s official website:
“I have my Green Card. Right now I'm getting it through my marriage,” he said.
“There's like a three-year time you have to have your Green Card for. But within that three years you have to spend a certain amount of days in the US. It's like 50%. I'm like at 45%. I think maybe I'll be eligible sometime next year, I think. (But) in terms of Davis Cup, no, I'm not going to be playing for the US.”
Anderson will face Swiss Stan Wawrinka in the quarter-finals on Wednesday.
