Johannesburg, South Africa - South Africa's Kevin Anderson won his first ATP singles title Sunday, beating India's Somdev Devvarman 4-6, 6-3, 6-2 in front of home fans at the SA Tennis Open.

The fourth-seeded Anderson became the first South African titlist on the ATP tour since Wesley Moodie capture the championship at Tokyo on October 9, 2005.

Anderson was appearing in the second final of his career. The Johannesburg native lost to American Sam Querrey in the 2008 Los Vegas title match.

Devvarman, meanwhile, became a two-time runner-up. He was beaten by Croat Marin Cilic in the 2009 Chennai title match -- his only other singles final.
