What Will Kevin Anderson’s Ranking Be After Wimbledon?

What Will Kevin Anderson’s Ranking Be After Wimbledon?

Overview

At just 32 South African tennis star Kevin Anderson is not only on top of his game but is already on a career high ranking. 

Anderson first reached the world’s top five in July last year after a run to the Wimbledon final where he lost to Novak Djokovic. 

After the completion of the Australian Open, Anderson moved up one spot to No 5 on the ATP Tour rankings. In Melbourne, he was knocked out early in the second round by American Frances Tiafoe but gained points after improving on his first-round showing in 2018. 

Significantly, Anderson is now ranked higher than Swiss great Roger Federer, who dropped three spots to No 6 in the rankings. Federer was the defending champion at the Australian Open but lost in the fourth round to Greek youngster Stefanos Tsitsipas. 

Anderson has performed admirably in reaching what’s known as a career high ranking. But, having stunned Federer in the Wimbledon quarter-finals with a fight back from two sets down, Anderson was adamant that his run to a first Wimbledon final proved he’s getting closer to Grand Slam glory. 

“The main thing is if I look at the improvements I’m making, I feel like it’s getting better. I definitely believe I have the game to win these tournaments,” Anderson said. 

“I feel like I’m on a great path. I have a lot of belief I can put myself into another one of these matches, and hopefully have the result that I’m looking for.”
