Raven and Kevin out of Wimbledon


Kevin Anderson’s run at Wimbledon has come to an end with the big serving South African losing in the fourth round to 24th seed Sam Querrey of the United States.

In a hard fought match that lasted just over three hours, the American won in five sets, 5-7, 7-6 (7/5), 6-3, 6-7 (13-11) and 6-3.

After a year filled with injury, which also forced his retirement at the French Open in June, Anderson matched his best ever run at Wimbledon.

He had previously reached the fourth round in both 2014 and 2015.

Meanwhile Raven, and partner Rajeev Ram, lost in straight sets in round 3 to Vasilevski and Podlipnik-Castillo: 6-4, 7-6 & 6-3 in the men’s doubles. In the mixed doubles Raven and partner K Srebotnik, seeded 7, went out to unseeded M Pavic/L Kichenok 64 75 in round 2.
