Head To Head


Kevin Anderson leads 2-0 against Jordan Thompson in matches played. Additionally, he has never lost a set to Thompson.

Their last meeting was in the round of 16 at the ATP Masters 1000 in Florida. Anderson won 7-5 7-5.

Anderson is currently ranked 69th in the world, and Jordan holds the 76th position. 

Kevin Anderson's Form


Kevin Anderson has battled with injuries in the last few years, but he bounced back to winning ways when he claimed his first ATP title of the season on the grass at the Hall Of Fame Open in July.

Since that victory, the big South African has struggled with his form on the hard courts, winning only one first-round match in his last six starts on the surface. 

However, the former world number five tends to do well at this tournament, reaching the quarter-finals on three occasions. 

Jordan Thompson's Form


Jordan Thompson recently suffered a humiliating defeat to 901 ranked August Holmgren during the qualifying rounds of the San Diego Open. He will still be hurting from that loss, and his confidence will be low.

Before that, the Australian did have some decent form on the hard courts, reaching the quarter-finals at Los Cabos and Atlanta.

Thompson will need to rediscover that form to have a chance against Anderson.
