'One of the best moments of my career' - Kevin Anderson on THAT Wimbledon final

South African tennis player Kevin Anderson says despite failing to win this year's men's singles at Wimbledon he still believes he is 'on the right path'.

The home-grown talent lost 6-2 6-2 7-6 (7-3) after taking on Novak Djokovic on Sunday, becoming the first South African men's player to make it to the Wimbledon final since Brian Norton in 1921.

Even though I still have some work to do, I feel like I am really on the right path. This last week, especially beating Roger Federer here at Wimbeldon ,was probably one of the best moments of my career, I can take a lot of confidence going forward.

Kevin Anderson, tennis player

I feel like I am making steps in the right direction.

Kevin Anderson, tennis player

I think the best thing I am doing a better job of is when I go on to the court against some of the best players in the world is just to feel more comfortable and have more trust in my game.
