At Delray Beach Open in Florida, tennis is having a great week with some highly motivated players in its draw. In men's singles, the semifinals' matches are already on the table with 2 worth-watching encounters. The first match will oppose Jack Sock (21 ATP) vs Donald Young (69 ATP) while the 2nd encounter will have Milos Raonic (4 ATP) and Juan Martin del Potro (42 ATP) as competitors. Although it could have been the final, due to del Potro's lower ranking, the Argentine has no other chance than facing the first seed at this stage of the tournament.

Raonic went through a tough match against Kyle Edmund

The Canadian was on the edge of defeat against the new hope of British tennis. Kyle Edmund pushed the Canadian into a decisive 3rd set. The opening statement belonged to the British player as he went on winning the set by 6-4. Raonic bounced back and secured the 2nd set by 6-3. The decisive set saw a dominant Raonic as he broke on Edmund's serve in the first game of the set. That was the sign that he needed. With a perfect service of his own, Raonic breezed through the set allowing zero chances to Edmund. The set ended by 6-4 for the top seed ensured him a spot in the semis.

Del Potro edged Sam Querrey in two tight sets

Playing his first ATP tournament in 2017, del Potro came at Delray Beach with no expectations but he put in a solid display of power especially in his last match against Sam Querrey (35 ATP).

The Argentine won it by 7-5 7-5 in just over an hour and a half. Both Querrey and del Potro put in a solid serve, so there were few break points along the way. Del Potro was better when he saw an opportunity on his opponent's serve. One break for each set has the job done. On his own serve, he was sharp as a Swiss watch allowing not a single chance to Querrey.

Del Potro vs Raonic

When the draw was out, the possibility of a match between del Potro and Raonic caused some excitement. The reason is simple as they faced each other twice and that happened back in 2013. The overall stats is 1-1. Del Potro won in Tokyo, while Raonic surged in Canada. With both players relying on their big serve, their clash is going to be a raw display of brutal tennis.
