Anderson In Search Of Momentum in ’21 Season

Kevin Anderson was ranked fifth in the world on the ATP tour in the summer of 2018 in the midst of what was undoubtedly the highest point of his career. The South African was a finalist at the 2017 US Open (lost to Nadal) as well at the 2018 Wimbledon (lost to Djokovic).

Anderson will be best remembered for his spectacular comeback in the 2018 Wimbledon quarter-finals against then defending champion Roger Federer. He then followed it with an epic semi-final match against American John Isner, which Anderson finally won 26-24 in the fifth set.

Although 2018 saw him make the year end ATP Tour Finals for the first time, the seasons since have not been overly encouraging for Anderson. A mix of injuries, layoffs, difficult returns to the tour and early losses have seen him drop in the rankings to as low as world number 97 now.

The 2021 season has not been overly encouraging either, where a couple good wins at the ATP 250 in Melbourne was followed by an opening round Aussie Open exit. Anderson lost early at the Miami Masters and his only tournament on clay was at Estoril where he pulled out with injury against Marin Cilic.

Can Kwon Register Biggest Win Of Career Thus Far?

After early losses at Delray Beach and Down Under, young Korean Kwon Soon-woo spent some time on the ATP Challenger circuit and worked his way back into better form and confidence.

While he had a good run at the Singapore Open, another early loss at the Miami Open saw an end to his indoor and hard court swing for now.

Kwon started well on clay with a quarter-final run at the Andalucia Open, but has since then only played at the two ATP 250s in Belgrade, with early losses at both, one inevitably at the hands of Novak Djokovic.

With not a lot of confident boosting clay practice under his belt, the Korean comes to Roland Garros with limited expectations. But, given how Anderson himself has had a bleak season thus far, Kwon may fell fancy his chances in the opener here.

Anderson v Kwon Prediction and Tip

Neither player has been in the best of form this season and particularly not on clay. If Anderson is back to decent fitness levels, this should be an easy encounter for him. Expect him to win in four sets.
