Johannesburg - South Africa's number one tennis player, Kevin Anderson, has equalled his career-best ranking after winning his second ATP Tour title at the weekend.

Anderson climbed six places to 30th in the latest world rankings released on Monday.

The big-serving South African defeated Australian qualifier Marinko Matosevic 6-4, 7-6 (7/2) to win the Delray Beach International in Florida, United States, on Sunday.

In his run to the final, Anderson beat former world number one Andy Roddick and current world number 11 John Isner.

Anderson lifted his only other tour title, also an ATP 250 event, when he won the SA Open in February last year.
