The American Taylor Fritz won the Delray Beach tournament on Monday, beating his compatriot Tommy Paul 6-2, 6-3 in a final played a day late due to rain. Fritz, 10th in the world, defending champion in Florida, added a seventh title to his record. Paul, 14th in the world, remained on a victory at the Dallas tournament last week.

The quarter-finalist of the last Australian Open better mastered playing conditions made difficult by the wind, while his opponent made numerous mistakes. “I tried to serve well and that often got me out of trouble. It’s incredibly difficult to do what you want with this wind.”, commented the winner. Fritz now has the advantage (3-2) in his duels with Paul, a player of the same generation as him (26 years old).
