I belong at the top, says Anderson

17 July 2018 12:09

Kevin Anderson wants to kick on further after reaching his first Wimbledon final and climbing to fifth in the ATP rankings.

The South African progressed to a grand slam final for just the second time with an impressive yet gruelling run at the All England Club, beating Roger Federer in the quarter-finals and then coming through a six-and-a-half-hour marathon against John Isner in the last four.

Although Anderson was then beaten comfortably on Sunday by Novak Djokovic, he is keen to improve further on his career-high ranking.

"I feel like I belong. I need to keep working hard and hopefully give myself more opportunities like this," Anderson told Jacaranda FM.

"It's a goal I've had for a long time. I think it took a little longer than I would have liked, but I'm really happy to be standing here now at number five in the world.

"It's a dream coming true, but I think I can re-align my goals and I feel like I can continue down the path that I'm on. There's no reason why I can't get that ranking even higher."
