    Anderson takes out Isner in Delray Beach semifinals Kevin Anderson defeats John Isner in straight sets on Saturday in Delray Beach. Next up for Anderson is a surprising final against Marinko Matosevic.

    Kevin Anderson is through to the Delray Beach final after defeating John Isner 7-5, 7-6(4) on Saturday night at the Delray Beach International Tennis Championships. Anderson, who fired 16 aces without double-faulting, set up a title match against Marinko Matosevic after one hour and 36 minutes.

    What promised to be a big-serving affair progressed as expressed throughout the first 10 games, with neither man facing a break point. At 5-5, however, Anderson broke serve out of nowhere then closed out the opening set one game later without any trouble.

    Isner went the entire second frame of play without donating serve. Again, though, the top-seeded American was little more than hopeless in the return game. This time Isner at least saw a break chance, but he sent a routine backhand well past the baseline.

    The ensuing tiebreaker all came down to the very first point. Isner double-faulted to fall behind 1-0 and he never got back on level terms. Anderson took care of every one of his service points and clinched victory at 6-4 by forcing Isner into an error with a strong approach shot.

    Isner also wrapped up his effort with 16 aces to go along with three double-faults.
