WINSTON-SALEM – South Africa's Kevin Anderson ended his losing streak in ATP tournament finals here Saturday with a straight-set win over France's Pierre-Hugues Herbert to take the Winston-Salem Open crown. World number 15 Anderson ensured he would head to next week's US Open in New York brimming with confidence after downing Herbert 6-4, 7-5. Anderson had lost all seven finals he had contested since his last tournament victory at Delray Beach in 2012. Anderson secured an early break in the first set to go 3-2 up and held his advantage to go 1-0 up. A tense second set was ultimately decided in the 11th game, when Herbert, playing his first ATP final, double-faulted to gift Anderson a break and a 6-5 lead. Anderson then held serve to complete a convincing win.
