"This couldn't be a better week for me to start my comeback" - Anderson on return to winners' circle at Hall of Fame Open Newport

Kevin Anderson began the week at the Hall of Fame Open in Newport with a 5-6 tour level record but he bounced back in style with a victory over Jenson Brooksby 7-6, 6-4.

Anderson claimed his first ATP title since Pune in 2019 and he is motivated to start a comeback to the top level after returning to the winner's circle.

“It’s been a pretty tough run with some injuries. But to be back here at the International Tennis Hall of Fame with such history, this couldn’t be a better week for me to start, hopefully, my comeback," Anderson said during the trophy ceremony. "I’m very motivated to get back. But it all starts with each match, and I was able to really grind it out.”

“Thanks to the tournament for giving me a wild card. It definitely worked out for me," Anderson continued. "The last time I was here was in 2008. It’s significant in a way. I was just starting my career, and I guess I’m towards the end, but definitely [am] very motivated to keep going.”
