  • Canada's Milos Raonic

"It's a good thing I was able to win today and it gives me a lot of things that I believe I can do better tomorrow", said ninth seeded Raonic.

Raonic is ranked 32nd in the world which is vastly different than previous year when he came into Delray Beach ranked fourth on the men's ATP Tour. "I think both of us were playing well".

Sock made it a first-day sweep for Americans. "He had three match points, but I played well".

With only two wins to his name this year, three-time Delray Beach semi-finalist Isner fell to another disappointing defeat, beaten 7-6 (3), 6-7 (4), 7-6 (5). "I've got to be a bit more consistent and disciplined with that". The American posted a 6-2, 6-4 result over the No.9 seed to reach the quarter-finals.

For this tournament, I didn't have the best preparation due to personal reasons that I am going through, but I will be doing better as time goes on.' The 29-year-old clearly referred to him splitting with the famous singer Jimena Baron after dating each other for a year or so.

Juan Martin del Potro didn't play so much so far this year.

German Peter Gojowczyk eked out a 7-6 (3), 6-7 (4), 7-6 (5) triumph over the three-time Delray Beach Open semi-finalist to await the victor of top seed Jack Sock and #NextGen ATP player Reilly Opelka.

"Any chance you get to play more matches that always builds confidence", said Johnson, who next faces Russian Evgeny Donskoy, a 7-6 (8/6), 6-3 victor over American Donald Young.

The American will next face Peter Gojowczyk, who won in three sets against Lukas Lacko. Wild card Francis Tiafoe beat Matthew Ebden 6-2, 2-6, 6-2.
