Bob Bryan and Mike Bryan are set to make their final appearance at the Delray Beach Open by VITACOST.com. The 41-year-old American twins, who will retire from professional tennis at this year’s US Open, made their Delray Beach debut in 1999 and have since won a tournament-record five titles. Their triumph last year marked their first tour-level title together since Bob’s comeback from hip surgery.
Australian Nick Kyrgios returns for a second straight year, and is the top seed in the singles draw. Should Kyrgios get through his first-round match against American Tommy Paul, he will face the winner between Australian Open quarter-finalist Tennys Sandgren or 2018 champion Frances Tiafoe. Sixth seed Ugo Humbert, who won his maiden title in January at the ASB Classic, is also in the top quarter of the draw.
In the bottom quarter, Radu Albot opens his title defence against 2017 champion Jack Sock, while No. 2 seed Milos Raonic meets Andreas Seppi. Taylor Fritz and Reilly Opelka lead the American charge, as the third and fourth seeds, respectively.
