American McDonald beats del Potro in Delray Beach Open

American McDonald beats del Potro in Delray Beach Open

In only his second ATP final he will face an unseeded player, either Mackenzie McDonald or Radu Albot.

"I just play every match as it comes, every point, every game", Evans said. He was suspended for one year later that year after testing positive for cocaine at the Barcelona Open that April. "It sounds very cliche but I'm just playing every match".

"I thought Adrian was playing well today".

The former world number 41 scored the biggest win since his comeback in the opening round when he ousted the Australian Open quarterfinalist Frances Tiafoe from a set down and he has displayed an inner steeliness this week which was evident as he closed out the first set against the Italian.

Evans previously appeared in a final at the 2017 Sydney International, where he was beaten by Gilles Muller.

National Football League aims to handle Kraft case like any other conduct matter
The league suspended Indianapolis Colts owner Jim Irsay for six games and fined him $500,000 under the conduct policy in 2014. The 77-year-old owner has been charged with soliciting a prostitute in Florida as part of a crackdown on sex trafficking.


Isner also reached the Delray Beach semifinals in 2012, '13 and '14, but has never advanced to the final.

Past year he won two ATP titles and reached the final of the US Open, where he was beaten by Novak Djokovic.

Isner took command early, breaking Evans in the second game and winning the first set without facing a break point as his booming serve held him in good stead in blustery winds on the outdoor hardcourt. It's getting to me now. I think tactically I did some things poorly today and that's what cost me.

Evans reeled off three successive breaks in the second set to swing the momentum in his favour and the Englishman did not look back at the ATP 250 tournament. "He just kept hitting a lot of balls". Even against an American opponent, the Delray Beach crowd urged the top seed on against McDonald by chanting "Delpo" between points and on changeovers.

McDonald visibly faded after taking charge in the first set, losing the final 12 games with little resistance.
