Kevin Anderson holding steady in world tennis elite

South Africa’s kingpin on the court moves a spot up in the latest world rankings.

South Africa’s Kevin Anderson has moved up one place to 16th in the ATP rankings.

The 31-year-old Anderson had an incredible run in the US Open where made it to the final before losing to Spain’s Rafael Nadal in September.

Anderson, at the time was the the world No 32, was the lowest-ranked US Open men’s singles finalist since the inception of the ATP rankings in 1973.

The South African started the season at No 80 in the ATP Rankings after an injury-ravaged 2016. It was his lowest mark since August 2010.

Anderson reached a career-high ranking of 10th in October 2015 soon after beating Britain’s Andy Murray to reach the US Open quarterfinals.

Meanwhile, rising SA tennis star, Lloyd Harris has slipped 33 spots to 232nd.

The 20-year-old broke into the world’s top 200 for the first time earlier this month.
