DELRAY BEACH, Fla. (Oct. 24, 2023) - Reigning Delray Beach Open champion and world Top 10 player Taylor Fritz will return to defend his 2023 title, tournament organizers announced today. The 32nd edition of the event takes place Feb. 9-18, 2024 at the Delray Beach Stadium & Tennis Center.
“We are thrilled Taylor will return to Delray to defend his title,” said Tournament Director Mark Baron. “Delray is tennis crazy and the fans will love seeing one of the world’s top 10 players right here.”
After becoming the first Top 10 player to hoist the Delray Beach Open trophy last February, Fritz moved up to No. 5 in the world. He has since won a sixth career title, reached five semifinals, made the US Open quarterfinals and helped the World Team win the Laver Cup. One of the featured players in the Netflix series Break Point, Fritz will try to become the first player to win back-to-back championships in Delray Beach since Jason Stoltenberg in 1996-97.
The top American, who turns 26 on Saturday, is currently fighting for a spot in the year-end ATP Finals as one of the year’s top eight players. At last year’s ATP Finals he defeated No. 2 Rafael Nadal enroute to a semifinal finish, culminating a breakout year that saw him win the biggest title of his career, the ATP Masters 1000 in Indian Wells, where he notched his first win over Nadal.
The 10-day Delray Beach Open will begin with an ATP Champions Tour event opening weekend Feb. 9-11. 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 draws more than 60,000 fans annually.
