Former Illini wins ATP Humanitarian Award


(WCIA) — Former Illinois Tennis Player Kevin Anderson was honored with the ATP Arthur Ashe Humanitarian Award.

Anderson played with the Illini from 2005-2007, and was honored for supporting a number of charitable causes in South Florida. Last December, Anderson raised more than $100,000 at his Grand Slam Cause for the Paws.

The South Africa-native will return to the ATP Tour for the first time since competing at Wimbledon.
