No. 2 American Tommy Paul Returns Home for Delray Beach Open; Bryan Brothers, Tommy Haas Highlight Legends Lineup

November 1st, 2023

Palm Beach County resident and No. 12 world-ranked Tommy Paul, the second-highest-ranked American, has committed to play the 2024 Delray Beach Open ATP 250 event, organizers announced today. He joins top 10 world-ranked American Taylor Fritz who was previously announced.

This year has been a breakout season for Paul, 26. He reached his first Grand Slam semifinal at the Australian Open with wins over two seeds and fellow American Ben Shelton, was a two-time finalist and notched a win over No. 1 Carlos Alcaraz to move up from No. 32 to No. 12 in the world rankings.

He will be competing in Delray Beach for the fifth consecutive year, with his best finish a semifinal in 2022. Later that year he scored wins over world No. 3 Alexander Zverev, his first over No. 4 Alcaraz, and Grand Slam major winners Rafael Nadal, Stan Wawrinka and Marin Cilic, the 2014 DBO champion. He won his first ATP Tour title at 2021 Stockholm by defeating Fritz, 2018 Delray winner Frances Tiafoe and three-time Grand Slam major winner Andy Murray.

Delray Beach locals saw early signs of Paul’s talent when he won back-to-back titles here at the USTA National Clay Court Championships in Boys 16s and 18s in 2013-14.

The 10-day event will begin with an ATP Champions Tour Legends event opening weekend Feb. 9-11 featuring fan favorites Bob and Mike Bryan, the most successful doubles team in the history of the sport. Joining them will be 2006 Delray Beach Open champion Tommy Haas, who reached the No. 2 world ranking. Singles and doubles main draw action for the ATP 250 event starts Monday, Feb. 12 and concludes with the finals on Sunday, Feb. 18.

The tournament is introducing a new website experience at www.DelrayBeachOpen.com. Fans will enjoy the site’s new look and easy navigation to find information on tickets, parties, special events, dining and more. During the tournament, a Scores tab will be added to the homepage that will have real-time updates of scores, results, draws and schedules. Player stories will be updated daily to help fans follow the action.

Also new, the tournament is adding a Burgers, Bourbon & Brew party and Championship Weekend Brunches to the list of on-site special events that includes Ladies’ Day Luncheons, Tacos, Tequila & Tennis and the Ultimate Pairing event – Game, Set, Pour, as well as USTA Florida Kids Day, Pride Night, Senior Day specials and group discounts.
