Anderson falls at the first hurdle
- Updated: March 14, 2009
South Africa’s 2008 tennis Olympian Kevin Anderson, who missed last week’s Davis Cup tie over Macedonia due to injury, was beaten in the first round of the BNP Paribas Open ATP Masters at Indian Wells.
Anderson fell 6-3 6-3 to the German Michael Berrer. Anderson has fallen out of the top 100 players in the world after a brief appearance in 2008, but his form has subsequently dipped, while injury has also taken a toll.
