Anderson looking for new coach

2014-01-15 00:00

SOUTH Africa’s top tennis player, Kevin Anderson, is looking for a new coach.

Anderson revealed that his New Zealand coach, G.D. Jones, has taken a new job and that they will go their separate ways after the Australian Open.

Anderson said he will be considering new possibilities while playing at the tournament in Melbourne, where he is through to the second round. Former South African player Neville Godwin will assist Anderson until he finds a permanent coach.

In December 2012 Anderson announced Louis Vosloo, who was his coach of three years at the time, was leaving.

He then turned to Jones, a close friend, and moved to a career-high of 19th in the world rankings under the Kiwi in August of last year.

“He [Jones] accepted a job from February at PricewaterhouseCoopers in Auckland,” said Anderson in his column on SuperSport.com.

Anderson said that after the Australian Open he will be working on a trial basis with Neville Godwin.
