The South African Kevin Anderson believes he has all the weapons to triumph in a Grand Slam tournament. Anderson, who lost 2017 US Open and 2018 Wimbledon finals to Rafael Nadal and Novak Djokovic, feels he is making steps forward as time goes on.
'The main thing is if I look at the improvements I'm making, I feel like it's getting better', Anderson said. 'Chatting with my team, everybody has the same sense of looking at the way I play. I think there are some small improvements I can still continue to make that will make life easier for me. I definitely believe I have the game to win these tournaments. If you asked a lot of players, their dreams, it's to win Grand Slams, win Masters Series.
Some players are able to trick themselves to really believing that. Even though it was a huge goal of mine, if you asked me this time a year ago, I don't think I could sit here and say I really believe that I can win a Grand Slam and a Masters Series and say it with the same self-belief and confidence that I can now. Obviously, that's by no means a sure thing whatsoever, but it's a big starting point. It's taken a long time to get to this point. I feel like I'm on a great path. I'm trusting the process a lot. I have to continue doing that. If I'm not in another Grand Slam final, it's because maybe I just got unlucky. You can't control everything. What I can control, I'm doing my best at doing. I have a lot of belief I can put myself into another one of these matches, and hopefully have the result that I'm looking for.'
