Cape Town - South African tennis star Kevin Anderson has announced he will skip next week’s US Men's Clay Court Championships in Houston.
He will however miss his first scheduled clay court event of 2018, but is expected to play in the Masters 1000 clay event in Monte Carlo from April 16.
Anderson did play in the ATP World Tour 250 event in Houston last year, but lost in the first round to Spain's Fernando Verdasco.
Unfortunately I’m not going to be able to compete at @mensclaycourt this year. It’s definitely one of my favourite stops on tour and I hope to make it back to River Oaks in 2019.— Kevin Anderson (@KAndersonATP) April 3, 2018
