In 2017, Jack Sock was the best at Delray Beach, because Milos Raonić did not make the final due to injury. Now the American is in the fight stage to return to the top 100. On Tuesday he won with German Daniel Altmaier 2:6, 6:3, 6:4. Thanks to this, the former eighth tennis player in the world will meet Riley Opelka, who won the 2020 season in Florida, on Thursday, seeded “two,” the US representative just won the championship in Dallas. With Sock he has a 1-1 balance in the round (in 2018 he was better than him in the second round of the Delray Beach Open).
On Tuesday, fans watched interesting duels with Americans and Australians. Fifth-ranked Sebastian Korda beat Thansi Kokinakis 6:4, 6:1, who was reborn in January in his native Adelaide and won the coveted Tour Championship. On Wednesday, the young American actor will face the veteran Italian Andreas Seppi, who has already won twice in the Tour (Roland Garros 2020, Parma 2021). Korda is one of the finalists for the Delray Beach Open in the 2021 season (then lost in the title match with Hubert Hurkacz).
Mitchell Krueger also had a smooth win over the Australian international. The 28-year-old never broke, and used three break points to break the pace in a duel with Jordan Thompson. The 28-year-old won 6-2 6-4 and enjoyed only his fourth win in the main course. As a bonus, he will fight for the quarter-finals on Thursday, and his opponent will be Bulgarian third seed Grigor Dimitrov.

Sam Querrey, who won at Delray Beach in 2016, said goodbye to the championship after the first game. It turned out that the conqueror was Uzbek Denis Istomin, who won 6: 1, 7: 6 (5). He will also stand in the way of American Tommy Ball, who took a wild card from the organizers and took fourth place with a fortune in the first round.
Jenson Broxby, who fought for the title in Dallas on Sunday to no avail, quit right from the start in Florida. He was replaced by Ecuadorean Emilio Gomez, but fell short of American Stefan Kozlov. Marcos Giron and Adrian Mannarino also qualified for the second round on Tuesday. The American defeated fellow countryman Tennys Sandgren, while the French expelled the British Liam Brody.
