Stomach bug delays Anderson’s 2014 season

Top ranked South African tennis player Kevin Anderson joined the long casualty list at the Brisbane International on Thursday when he was forced to withdraw with an acute stomach virus.

Seeded fourth for the tournament, the South African was due to play Australian wildcard Sam Groth in the second round on Thursday night, reports AFP.

Anderson, the world No 20, was yet to play a singles match as he was given a first round bye, and he has been replaced by qualifying lucky loser Pierre-Hugues Herbert of France.

Anderson joins Nick Kyrgios, Caroline Wozniacki, Sabine Lisicki, Ashleigh Barty and Anastasia Pavlyuchenkova as withdrawals from the season-opening tournament.
