Tennis – Delray Beach Open: Juan Martin Del Potro Into The QF’s
Juan Martin del Potro booked a spot in the Delray Beach Open quarter-finals, while Nick Kyrgios neglected to do as such on Thursday.
Del Potro, playing his first competition since October after knee damage, broke once in each set to beat Reilly Opelka 6-4 6-4 in the second round.
The Argentine best seed, champion at the ATP 250 occasion in 2011, next faces Mackenzie McDonald, who defeated Guillermo Garcia-Lopez 7-5 6-4.
Be that as it may, Kyrgios bowed out with a 6-2 3 6-3 misfortune to Radu Albot, who will meet Steve Johnson after the fourth seed’s 7-5 7-5 triumph over Paolo Lorenzi.
At the Rio Open, the remainder of the rest of the seeds – Joao Sousa – withdrew to leave the field wide open.
Sousa was beaten by qualifier Casper Ruud 6 3 6-4 in the second round to end up the remainder of the eight seeds to exit.
Ruud will confront Laslo Djere, who was unreasonably useful for Taro Daniel 6-4 6-2 to add to his steamed win over Dominic Thiem.
Pablo Cuevas and Albert Ramos-Vinolas will likewise meet after successes over Juan Ignacio Londero and Federico Delbonis separately.
Juan Martín Del Potro doesn’t face a break point all match and converts 2/2 to beat the New York Champ Reilly Opelka, 6-4, 6-4, and reach the QFs in Delray Beach. He is facing Mackenzie McDonald tomorrow.
