DELRAY BEACH, Fla. (AP) Kevin Anderson beat Australian qualifier Marinko Matosevic 6-4, 7-6 (2) on Sunday to win the Delray Beach International Tennis Championships for his second career ATP title.

The seventh-seeded Anderson, the first South African to win this 20-year-old tournament, is now 2-1 in career finals, having won his first title at the now defunct 2011 Johannesburg tournament.

The 36th-ranked Anderson - he'll move up to around No. 30 in the next rankings - gained a lot of attention here this week as he beat the two American favorites - Andy Roddick in quarterfinals and John Isner in the semis.

The 173rd-ranked Matosevic had the best week of his career despite losing in his first career. The 26-year-old, who came in with a 3-15 record on the ATP Tour, had never before won consecutive matches.
