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 break from the courts and fetched my cousin Alex from Amedeo College, a small, nurturing school in Sandton, Johannesburg that uniquely balances education with every-day life to meet the needs of each individual child! They seem to have got the balance right! @ Johannesburg ... See moreSee less
