Del Potro vs Opelka (By: Iniestaone)
1/8-final match from ATP Delray Beach between Del Potro (#4) and Opelka (#56)
Delpo made his return to tennis after a 4 month absence in Delray Beach where he defeated Nishioka 6-3 7-5. He wasn't as solid as one would expect a healthy Delpo to be which of course is understandable due to him missing out on so much tennis.
Opelka won the New York ATP tour and he was expected by many to lose to Sandgren in his Delray Beach opener as he was supposed to be too fatigued but instead he wont on to demolish Sandgren 6-4 6-0 which is a crazy result and one that makes me believe he will stay close to Del Potro here as well. I don't dare to bet on Opelka to win this as Delpo is so much better in general but I wouldn't be surprised one bit if Opelka lost 6-7 6-7.
Delpo is not bad against these big servers at all, he has great head to head stats against the likes of Isner and Karlovic but he is out of shape and facing an Opelka who is in the form of his life. I can't see Opelka losing many, if any, games on serve here considering how well he has been serving on American courts this month.
