Topnotch Management's Reilly Opelka and Yoshihito Nishioka met in the final of the Delray Beach Open this weekend.
Reilly ultimately lifted the trophy (his second career ATP Tour title), but Yoshi earned a career-high ranking of No. 48 with his battle. Congratulations to both!
Reilly's win was his second of the day—a postponed semifinal meant he had to take on former Top 10 and Wimbledon finalist Milos Raonic in the morning and return to the court for the final only a few hours later. Both matches went to three sets.
