He became the top-ranked male South African player on 10 March 2008 after making the final at the 2008 Tennis Channel Open in Las Vegas. He achieved his career-high ranking of world No. 7 on 14 May 2018. He is the first South African to be ranked in the top 10 since Wayne Ferreira was No. 10 on 5 May 1997.

On 6 February 2011, he defeated Somdev Devvarman in his hometown of Johannesburg to capture the South African Open title for his first ATP-level event title. His second ATP title came at the Delray Beach Open in 2012 when he defeated Marinko Matosevic.

Anderson made his Grand Slam final debut at the 2017 US Open, where he lost to Rafael Nadal. He ended 2017 winning the Abu Dhabi hosted World Tennis Championship.

In June 2016, Anderson co-founded a tennis instructional and lifestyle website titled Realife Tennis which offers online instruction and access to life on the professional tennis circuit.

I’m very excited to announce that on December 15, I will be hosting a charity event with 100% of funds raised to benefit Dezzy's Second Chance Animal Rescue and @oceanconservancy’s Trash Free Seas Alliance. I hope you can join me in Boca Raton, Florida for an afternoon of great tennis (including the Bryan Brothers, Sebastien Grosjean and more to be announced), meet & greets, on-court challenges, a silent auction and VIP dinner, and we’re thrilled that comedian Michael Kosta will be on hand to emcee the event. Even if you can’t make it to South Florida, there are many ways you can still support the cause and get something pretty cool in return. Visit AndersonCause.org or click the link in my bio for more information and hope to see you there!

I had a great first practice at the Miami Open today with Borna Coric. The elbow is feeling better and I'm hoping for a good week back on the match court! It's the first time the tournament is being hosted at this new venue and the facilities are pretty cool. Hope to see a lot of you here ๐Ÿ‘ ... See moreSee less

Poetry in motion Mr Anderson ... good luck this week in Indian Wells.

Who is on the other side of the net? Daniil Medvedev?

Good luck my son Kevin Anderson

Good luck โœŠโœŠโœŠ

you know who I love to watch play tennis? Medvedev. There's something about his technique. It's so aesthetic yet so unusual, even awkward. But it all comes together, for easy power, flat shots. I am impressed with more flat shots which are still consistent.

Good luck for Indian Wells, Kevin Anderson!

2 of my all time heroes. Kevin and Martina

Wow u lucky fish u.. Glad u enjoyed

Oh wow. What an honour Kevin.

Kevin ek wonder wie het tips by wie gekry. Bly om te sien jy oefen weer.. Mis jou op die wรชreld verhoog... Hou ook van die manier waarop jy uit die boks dink om ander leermeesters te kry om jou te help

She is one of the greats!!!

Wow! Sheโ€™s so amazing. Two greats on one court.

Lovely words Kevin. what a nice guy you are.

(So lucky to have seen Martina playing mixed doubles at Wimbledon on Court one 16 years ago), now I want to take my mom to support you: Kevin at Wimbledon(I refer to you as her other son, since you made her: previously also coaching, so proud). Keep going Kevin, youโ€™ve already shocked the world with your remarkable road to the title in 2018, and Martina: make him win, please!

Her and Chris Evert's rivalry in the 70s and 80s got me hooked on tennis!!!

Martina still looking great โค๏ธ

I think she is a fan!!!

One of the best... This Czech tennis queen

Wow thatโ€™s awesome ..... spent hours watching her play In The day
