Isner Sails Into Delray Beach QF
John Isner advanced to his second quarter-final in as many weeks on Wednesday (New York), dismissing Slovakian Lukas Lacko 6-4, 6-3 at the Delray Beach Open by VITACOST.com. The three-time semi-finalist dropped only one first-serve point (31/32) and improved to 4-0 against Lacko in their FedEx ATP Head2Head series, which dates back to Auckland 2014.
"It was a good win. I think I'm getting more comfortable on this surface, especially with the positioning on my return... I was challenging him on a lot of return games," Isner said. "I was very happy how I came through that."
Brit qualifier Daniel Evans reached his third tour-level quarter-final – and first since the 2017 Sydney International. The 28-year-old, No. 148 in the ATP Rankings, routed South Africa's Lloyd Harris 6-0, 6-2 in only 69 minutes.
