Read all the latest news about Delray Beach Open
The Delray Beach Open is one of the newer events in the tennis calendar and it belongs to the ATP 250 category with Florida, USA being its home.
The Delray Beach Open was founded in 1993 as an outdoor clay event which is somewhat unusual for US-based events. After six years on clay, the event moved to the signature outdoor hard court setting which we've seen ever since. The venue is the Delray Beach Tennis Centre which has an 8,200-capacity stadium where all the main matches are being held.
Due to the event taking place in Florida, which has a lot of tennis academies and a long history in the sport, it generally features a very solid entry list of players that use it to prepare for the Sunshine Double. It generally takes place in February before the heat hits the peninsula.
The first event on clay was won by native player Todd Martin. Back then the event was held in Coral Springs before it's permanent move to Delray Beach in 1998. Since then we've seen many prominent players win the event though Americans have dominated in recent years.
Players like Fish, Querrey, Sock, Nishikori, Tiafoe, Opelka and Fritz have all won the event in the past. The last of them, Fritz was the champion in 2023.
