DELRAY BEACH, Fla., March 3 (UPI) -- Underdogs Kevin Anderson and Marinko Matosevic will meet for the Delray Beach tennis event crown after both staged upset semifinal wins Saturday.

The seventh-seeded Anderson upended No. 1 seed John Isner of the United States 7-5, 7-6 (7-4), to reach only his third career final.

The South African fired 16 aces while improving to 3-3 against Isner and advancing to only his third career final.

Matosevic was appearing in his first-ever ATP-level semifinal.
