Cape Town - South Africa's Kevin Anderson has announced that Brad Stine will be his coach for the 2018 season.

Anderson confirmed the news on his Twitter page on Wednesday. 

Having made the US Open final in 2017, Anderson somewhat surprisingly parted ways with Neville Godwin as his coach in November. 

Now, with the Australian Open around the corner, the big-serving 31-year-old has settled down with Stine and the pair has been working together in preparation for the first Grand Slam of the year. 

Stine comes with a sterling reputation in the tennis community having coached Jim Courier in the 1990s. 

Since then, he has worked with Sebastian Grosjean and Byron Black. 

The Australian Open gets underway on January 15.
