Del Potro Stunned By Tiafoe At Delray Beach Open

Del Potro Stunned By Tiafoe At Delray Beach Open

Wildcard Reilly Opelka, ranked 228th in the world, stunned top seed and defending champion Jack Sock 4-6, 7-5, 6-3 on Wednesday to reach the quarter-finals of the ATP tournament in Delray Beach, Florida. And after a return to the Top 10 of the ATP Rankings in January for the first time since August 2014, del Potro again started favourite in the match against the World No. 91. After an opening round win for the No. 1 seed, the American falls in the round of 16.

While Lincoln native Jack Sock went the academy route as a tennis player, living and training full-time in Kansas City as a junior, Jackson Withrow stayed in Omaha and became a three-time state champion at Omaha Burke.

Injuries limited Raonic's time on the court in 2017, and his first-round victory over Japan's Taro Daniel was his first Tour-level win in six months.




Spurred into action at the frustration of having let the first set slide from his grasp, del Potro broke immediately and carried the momentum to serve out the second set 6-4. The 21-year-old South Korean had to dig in to finish off the 303rd-ranked Skugor, who rallied from 0-4 down in the second set, saving three match points as he forced the tiebreaker. "It's unbelievable definitely. Two weeks in a row in the quarters", Tiafoe said.

Isner noted after his win yesterday that the lack of match play made it tough for him to get his footwork going, but winning real matches would help. "Just wanted to get over the line". "Still, I certainly will be better here than in Australia". "I think both of us were playing well". Eighth-seeded Chung Hyeon of South Korea faces Croatian qualifier Franko Skugor for a place in the last eight. "We're good friends. We've practised together a tonne, but we've never played a match", Tiafoe said.
