For Kevin Anderson, after losing 2017 US Open final to Rafael Nadal and 2018 Wimbledon final to Novak Djokovic, the goal is to conquer a Grand Slam title. The South African player has been going through a tough 2019 season, which was influenced by injuries and he skipped the French Open.
In an interview, Anderson commented on the difficulties of winning a Major having to deal with Roger Federer, Nadal and Djokovic. "It's a lot of depth right now, it's a great time to be playing the sport, and it's also a tough time to be playing the sport.
Without a doubt I am good enough to play tennis and beat anybody, and it's about putting together seven consecutive matches and that's not easy to do. That's why such a select few people have been able to win Grand Slams, there's a lot of stuff to deal from an emotional standpoint.
I definitely like I have proven into myself I can beat these guys, obviously it's very tough but if I take care of the little details, I can have a chance." He also picked a special story: "Roger and Rafa coming back from a time off in 2017, just seeing them competing in the Australian Open finals and then seeing them in the race for the No. 1 spot on the rankings."
