Milos Raonic gets bumped from Delray following semifinal loss
American Reilly Opelka defeats unseeded Yoshihito Nishioka of Japan in final
American Reilly Opelka defeated Canadian Milos Raonic on Sunday to advance to the final of the Delray Beach Open men's tennis tournament.
The six-foot-11, 225-pound Opelka secured a 4-6, 7-6 (6), 6-3 semifinal win over Raonic. The two were relegated to playing Sunday after their match Saturday night was postponed due to rain.
Opelka tied the head-to-head series 1-1. Raonic, of Thornhill, Ont., won the first meeting last year at Wimbledon in straight sets.
Opelka went on to beat Japan's Yoshihito Nishioka in three sets to win his second career ATP Tour title.
