Opelka dropped the first set 6-4, then seemed in great shape when he took a 5-0 lead in the second set tiebreak.

Against Yoshihito, I stayed focused and grabbed two breaks in the final set, which happens only once in ten years in my case. "If he broke me and we had to play more tennis, I was fine". A cross-court backhand passing shot that Nishioka could not handle ended the set and sent Opelka, sprinting to his chair, smacking his chest in celebration.

Opelka blasted his 15th ace to save match point, then watched Raonic send two forehands beyond the baseline to force a third set.

"It's very tough to break his service game and I do not have the biggest serve", Nishioka said. "It worked. That was the key".

The fourth-seeded Opelka labored overtime and gained two matches on Sunday, topping Yoshihito Nishioka 7-five, 6-seven (four-7), six-2 to just take the Delray Beach Open up championship.

Nishioka, who won his only other ATP final in 2018 at Shenzhen, ousted French sixth seed Ugo Humbert 1-6, 6-4, 6-0 on Saturday before the rain.

Speaking after the win against Nishioka, Reilly said he likes those conditions much more than those in NY where he won the title a year ago, struggling with the wind a little bit but still doing enough to go all the way and grab the trophy.

The doubles crown was won by Mike Bryan and Bob Bryan as they beat Luke Bambridge and Ben McLachlan 3-6 7-5 (10-5).

The final was being held later on Sunday.

It was Garin's second title this year after winning the Cordoba Open in Argentina earlier in February.

I love playing at home; my house is ten minutes away from the Stadium. It was very good in all aspects.

As good as a second ATP title feels, Opelka has much loftier goals in mind as he settles in for the long haul.

After several years of indifferent form and injury set-backs, there were signs of a return to form for the former Canadian number one in Melbourne, where he got to the quarter final only to lose to Novak Djokovic.

Both semi-finals were finished Sunday afternoon after rain halted play shortly after midnight when Garin and Mager had already won the first set.

Nishioka won 27 of 37 factors in the choosing collection to beat the in-form Frenchman, that thrived in Auckland inJanuary Early on, Humbert was in control of the factors, playing regulated offense that saw him make couple of mistakes.

Marcel Granollers and Horacio Zeballos ran out doubles winners after their 6-4 5-7 (10-7) victory over Federico Gaio and Salvatore Caruso.
