South African Kevin Anderson won his second career title as he captured the Delray Beach trophy. He defeated the Australian qualifier Marinko Matosevic in straight sets 6-4  7-6 (2) in Sunday’s final.

Anderson played some fantastic tennis throughout the whole week as he beat Roddick and Isner on the way to the final.

The first set of the match started in a quite unusual way as the crowd saw five breaks of serve in a row. After Anderson managed to hold serve to take a 4-2 lead, he held on tight and took a 1-0 set lead.

In the second set, it was the South African who maintained the pressure on Matosevic. The Australian had to save a few break points on his serve to take the set to a tiebreaker. But Anderson got off to a 4-0 with three mini breaks and the faith of the match was pretty much decided.

On the way to the final, Anderson overcame John Isner of America 7-5  7-6 (4) and Matosevic dismissed Dudi Sela of Israel 5-7  6-4  7-6 (7).
