ATP tennis returns to the Americas on Thursday with the Delray Beach Open. The tournament relocated from it’s customary pre-Indian Wells date to now, along with Antalya, open the season.
Not surprisingly, the tournament was hit hard with big name withdrawals including Andy Murray, Milos Raonic, Kei Nishikori and defending champion Reilly Opelka who withdrew earlier today.
The tournament will be left with former champions Sam Querrey, Frances Tiafoe and Ivo Karlovic.
At the top of the seeds will be Cristian Garin, John Isner, Adrian Mannarino and Hubert Hurkacz.
With qualifying getting underway Tuesday, at least 10 of the 24 players will hail from America.
French Open breakout star Sebastian Korda is also in the field. Isner could meet Korda in the quarterfinals and then possibly Tiafoe in the semifinals.
Last year, Opelka beat Yoshihito Nishioka in the final 6-2 in the third.
