Anderson falls in French Open fourth round
- Updated: June 2, 2013
Our last hope of singles glory, Kevin Anderson was beaten by Spaniard David Ferrer in the fourth round of the French Open on Sunday, going down in straight sets at Roland Garros.
Despite a bright start, Anderson failed to keep up with Ferrer, losing the opening set in 35 minutes, before going down 6-1 in the second, reports Sapa.
Ferrer wrapped-up the match in an hour and 45 minutes, with a 6-3, 6-1, 6-1 victory.
Anderson secured a hard fought 7-5, 7-6, 6-3 victory over Canadian Milos Raonic, the world No 16, in the third round on Friday, but was unable to repeat the performance.
He had been the only South African remaining in the singles draw.
It is only the second time Anderson has progressed to the fourth round of a Grand Slam tournament, after reaching the same stage of the Australian Open in January.
