Frances Tiafoe and qualifying field announced at the Delray Beach Open

Big Foe will be at the DBO! The Delray Beach Open announced that Frances Tiafoe will return for this year’s tournament. Tiafoe is a former Delray Beach Open champion and will become the tournament's fourth Top 20 player in the field. The DBO also announced a comprehensive (and impressive) list of qualifiers looking to fight their way into this year's main draw.

At the 2018 Delray Beach Open, Tiafoe was a wild card ranked No. 91 and defeated five higher ranked players, including No. 10 Juan Martin del Potro, to capture his first ATP Tour title. He added two more trophies last season, on clay in Houston and grass in Stuttgart. In his Houston run, he lost serve just once in the tournament.

Currently world-ranked No. 17, Tiafoe is scheduled play his first match at 8 p.m. on Thursday, Feb. 15. Big Foe will be joining Americans Taylor Fritz (No. 12) and Tommy Paul (No. 14) at the DBO. Rounding out the Top 20 quartet will be the No. 19 Frenchman Adrian Mannarino. For the initial entry list, check out our full breakdown published a few days ago.

The Delray Beach Open also announced its qualifying field which includes some exciting players. Two qualifying rounds will take place on Feb. 10-11 with four qualifiers moving on to the main draw. We'll definitely be pulling for fellow Floridian Michael Mmoh who currently resides in Bradenton.
