Pol star Hubert Hurkacz collected his second career title besting Sebastian Korda 6-3, 6-3 to win the Delray Beach title on Wednesday.
The 23-year-old Hurkacz never lost a set all week en route to his second career ATP final after his 2019 Winston-Salem crown.
“It feels great,” Hurkacz said. “It’s the beginning of the season and I still need to work on a couple of things, but I hope I can play even better in Australia.”
Korda, who made a big breakthrough at the French Open losing to Rafael Nadal in the fourth round a few months ago, had a terrific start to 2021 beating Tommy Paul, John Isner and then Cameron Norrie in the semifinals to reach his first career ATP final.
“I was trying to focus on things that I should do and to stay aggressive, because Sebastian is never going to hand me the match,” Hurkacz added after the 68-minute win. “Sometimes It’s even tougher when your opponent is not feeling 100 per cent well. He’s trying to focus on what he can do, and he can serve big and hit big shots from the baseline. So it was crucial for me to stay aggressive and get an advantage there.”
