    The Tournament

    Delray Beach hosts the world's only combined ATP World Tour/ATP Champions Tour event. The 2016 Champions Tour event featured a Team USA vs. Team International competition, which included James Blake, Mardy Fish, Wayne Ferreira and Sebastien Grosjean.

    Juan Martin Del Potro made his long-awaited return to the tour here in 2016 and begins his 2017 campaign here again.

    Milos Raonic is the top seed going into the tournament.

    Great to see Juan Martin back on the courts! He's playing Anderson, so they're on serve so far: 3-3.

    Del Potro just beat Anderson in straights. It's a little hard to judge his game in a battle of serves. He's still using the BH slice, but it seems to be more strategic, because the 2-hander was used effectively. It'll be interesting to seem him in a match where he has to rally more.

    @britbox deceitfully omits Juan Martin del Potro´s comeback win, still bitter about Maradona´s "Mano de Dios"... get over it, man!

    Lol. He was just wrapping it up when I posted the rest of the results...

    But this is for you @mrzz



    I'm not bitter... Welsh, not English ;)

    But that goal was just enough to put Maradona over Pele in my all time lists at the time :)

    I like Maradona but I hope that it was only "at the time". Pelé is in a league of his own and I don´t even know how to start a conversation about it.

    Coric is a bit error-filled, and DF-ing. Roanic is proving the benefit of maturity in this match so far.

    Raonic wins in the 3rd after losing the 1st to Edmund. I know there are folks who don't like Raonic's game, but, with his revolving raft of coaches and his high-flying ambitions, he's turned that big serve into a more than serviceable S&V game. Surely he is making the most of his skills and minimizing his deficiencies.
