Kevin Anderson says he won’t be fully satisfied with his career unless he manages to win a Grand Slam. South African Anderson has really upped his game this season and managed to reach the Wimbledon final for the first time in the summer, where he lost out to Novak Djokovic in straight sets.
The 32-year-old also added two more ATP titles to his collection – the New York Open and Vienna Open – whilst he reached the semi-finals of the season-ending ATP Finals in his debut appearance.
Although happy with his displays in 2018, world number six Anderson admits he still longs for a victory in a Grand Slam and a Masters event. “I’d only really know afterwards if my career would be complete only with a Slam,” he was quoted as saying by tennis365.
“I understand the difficulties. The challenge now is knowing that in order to win those tournaments, you’re going to have to beat a handful of guys who’ve had so much experience of that. “Hopefully more Masters Series finals, hopefully hoisting one of those.
They’re ambitious goals, but well within my ability, I’ve proven that to myself. If I finish my career without hoisting one of those, a Grand Slam trophy or a Masters Series, it will be tough in some ways.”
