Kevin Anderson played college tennis at the University of Illinois for three seasons (2005-2007). He earned All-American honors for all three years there.
Anderson is one of the best tennis players to come from South Africa. Naturally, sponsors have signed him up to benefit from his global exposure. Though a grand slam title has eluded Anderson, he has been a constant fixture in the top 20 when he has been injury-free.
Anderson has been involved in a number of charitable activities. He hosts events to raise funds for First Serve, Dezzy’s Second Chance, and Ocean Conservancy.
In 2019, he earned Arthur Ashe Humanitarian Award and in 2020, the ATP ACES for Charity grant to benefit First Serve, a charity focused on children.
