Former World No.5 Kevin Anderson announced his retirement from the Association of Tennis Professionals(ATP Tour). In his fifteen years of career, the 35-year-old South African claimed seven titles and reached thirteen championship matches.

Most notably, Anderson reached the finals at the 2017 US Open and 2018 Wimbledon. Right now, he is ranked No.107 in the ATP ranking table. 

“I don’t remember a time in my life when I wasn’t playing tennis. I started on the journey 30 years ago when my Dad put a racquet in my hands and told me if I was willing to work hard, I could be one of the best players in the world,” Kevin Anderson recently wrote on his Twitter handle.

South African further continued, “Since then, tennis carried me far beyond my roots in Johannesburg, South Africa and truly gave me the world. I’ve experienced so many different challenges and emotions; this sport can be exhilarating and at the same time lonely.”

“I’ve had ups and downs, but I wouldn’t change it for anything. My journey helped me become the man who I am today.”

“I’ve learned from so many people along the way.”

“I Gave It My Best”, says Kevin Anderson

Anderson added, “I’m extremely grateful for the incredible coaches, agents, physios, fitness trainers, and mental coaches who helped me maximize my potential and really achieve my dreams over the years.”

“Thank you to all the fans who watched, cheered and have been there for me along the way. I will always appreciate the outpouring of support you showed me.”

“I am so thankful for the wonderful things that have come my way purely because I was a part of this sport.”

“As a kid, my Dad used to tell me that success isn’t defined by results, but by the effort and sacrifice you make along the way in becoming the best you can be. I gave it my best,” Kevin Anderson ended.

Most recently, Kevin Anderson competed at Miami Masters 2022, where he fell in the opening round to Juan Manuel Cerundolo(6-7, 6-3, 3-6).
