Cape Town - Kevin Anderson's impressive run at the 2017 French Open is over after the big serving South African was forced to retire in the second set of his Round 4 match against Croatia's Marin Cilic.

Anderson had lost the first set 6-3 and was down 3-0 in the second when he couldn't continue further due to a hamstring injury.

Anderson is the sixth player from the men's draw forced to retire from the tournament.
