Kevin Anderson expects a very exciting 2019 season ahead of him. The South African player believes he can improve even more his tennis, but at the same time retaining this year's results will not be easy because of the whole big competition.
'It will be interesting', said Anderson. 'It's tough to sort of see too much. The way that Novak has ended, you definitely have to expect him to be up there. I mean, obviously Nadal is going to be healthy, I'm sure.
He's always a force to be reckoned with, to say the least. Roger continues to amaze. But then you also have the likes of Murray is going to be back and healthy. I think Stan is going to be continuing. Del Potro. There's so many players, I can't name everybody now.
Of course you have all of the young guys as well. I'm definitely looking at putting myself in the mix there. Top five was a big goal of mine for a long time. Hopefully next year this time I'll finish top three. I think that will be a great goal for me.
In order to do that, you're going to have to have very good results at Masters Series and slams. Hopefully I'll have a couple of titles, Masters Series, being in finals there, putting myself in finals of slams, hopefully winning one.
That's the ultimate goal. I feel like I've put myself in a position where I feel like I'm a contender, a legitimate one. There's some things I need to do better at certain stages of tournaments, but that's what we'll be working at.' ALSO READ: Rafael Nadal: Worse players than David Ferrer won a Grand Slam title
