Kevin had a tough year playing in only 5 events in 2019 due to knee and elbow injuries – the last of them coming at Wimbledon. He will begin his 2020 campaign at the inaugural edition of the ATP Cup and says he is looking forward to playing for South Africa in the new tournament.
An announcement via Twitter stated that Kevin has added Diego Moyano to his team to help him return to form.
Diego Moyano has resigned from his position as USTA Player Development Coach and will become the new coach of South African tennis player Kevin Anderson in 2020. Moyano, who is originally from Argentina, has built an impeccable reputation while working with the USTA for the past 10 years and worked with several American youngsters as they transitioned from the junior circuit to the professional circuit – including Reilly Opelka, Frances Tiafoe, Taylor Fritz, Tommy Paul, Mackenzie McDonald, Tennys Sandgren and Denis Kudla. 44-year-old Moyano is a former tennis professional himself and peaked at No. 130 in the ATP world rankings in November 2000. He won 4 ATP Challenger titles and 6 ITF Futures titles during his career and played his last professional tournament in 2005.
