Despite losing to top seed Rafael Nadal in the third round of the Rogers Cup in Toronto, Canada on Thursday, Kevin Anderson can hold his head high.
Our top-ranked player went down in two sets to the Spanish ace, losing 6-2 7-6 (6).
Up to that point though he had beaten two players ranked well above him in the first and second rounds, Argentina’s Leonardo Meyer (No68) and Sam Querrey, the American now ranked 21st on the ATP rankings.
Anderson is now bound to go even higher up the ladder when the latest rankings are released on Monday.
Having earned himself a tidy $US 31,000 for making the third round, Anderson’s success certainly enriches the South African Davis Cup squad. Earlier this week Anderson confirmed that he would be turning out to help South Africa in their crucial clay-court clash against Germany in Stuttgart next month.
