Cape Town - South Africa’s Kevin Anderson is thankful for the support he received during his 2017 Wimbledon campaign.
The SA No 1 matched his Wimbledon best by reaching the last 16 as he attempts to rebuild his career following a spate of injuries.
Anderson was beaten 5-7, 7-6 (7/5), 6-3, 6-7 (13/11), 6-3 by America’s Sam Querrey in the Wimbledon fourth round on Monday, with just a few points separating him from a quarter-final place.
Anderson took to Twitter on Tuesday, thanking his supporters and also wishing his good friend Querrey well.
Following his decent run at Wimbledon, the current world number 42 is targeting going at least one better at the US Open.
The top 10 is "definitely" within reach, the 2.03m tall Anderson said after his Wimbledon campaign ended.
"It's just a few matches here and there. Without a doubt I'm playing good enough tennis to be there. You just have to stay patient. A good couple of wins can catapult you up the rankings pretty quick," the 31-year-old continued.
