Kevin Anderson had high hopes for his 2019, but eventually this season was rather disappointing for the South African that managed to play just 15 matches. Anderson managed to win the ATP250 in Pune at the very beginning of the year, but that was his only satisfaction as later he was hampered by a knee injury.
The communicate and the knee injury
Currently ranked no.18, Kevin released the following statement on Twitter
“2019 has been a very difficult and frustrating year for me on the tennis court. I was so pleased to start well, winning the title in Pune, but since have not been able to get healthy to compete at the level I want to.
I have spoken with my team, consulted with doctors, and we have decided that the best course of action is to take the rest of the year off and prepare for 2020. This will give me enough time to undergo more rehab processes and get healthy.
I’d like to thank you again for all your support and well wishes, and I look forward to getting back on the court in the new year.
All the best,
Kevin and Kelsey expecting a baby girl in October
The good news for the South African is that he will also have time to spend with his lovely wife Kelsey and her future newborn, Keria, that is expected to be added to the family in October.
