Qualifier Jason Jung on Tuesday stunned former world No. 5 Kevin Anderson in the first round at the New York Open, an event at which the world No. 131 -— who was born in Torrance, California, but represents Taiwan — has earned three of his five ATP Tour victories.

Jung saved a set point on his way to a 7-6 (8/6), 6-4 victory over the South African, now ranked 120th after suffering an injury-ravaged season last year.

Jung converted two of five break points and won 94 percent of points on his first service to wrap up the victory in 1 hour, 28 minutes.

“I guess I like these courts. It’s always nice to get a big win and gives [me] a little confidence boost, so hopefully I can build on that. I’m just really happy,” Jung told the ATP Web site.
