Hubert Hurkacz looks to back his solid performance in the second round here in Delray Beach, as he meets Roberto Quiroz in the quarterfinals of the 2021 Delray Beach Open on Monday, January 11th 2021. Will Quiroz be able to cause another upset, or will Hurkacz be able to make the semifinals?
Roberto Quiroz beat Ivo Karlovic in the second round on Sunday in straight sets 6-2/6-4, in what was a shocking result in my opinion. Ivo Karlovic was of course the best player when you compare their respective game, but he had a stomach issue bother him right from the start of the match, which prevented him from playing his best tennis. Quiroz capitalised on this and is now in an ATP 250 quarterfinal. Quiroz knows that if Karlovic was fully fit, this would have been a different story, and now as he comes against Hurkacz, who can both serve insanely big, but moves incredibly well around the court, he will have to up his game drastically.
Hubert Hurkacz absolutely destroyed Daniel Elahi Galan in the second round here, beating him in straight sets 6-2/6-2. Hurkacz looked ready and solid from the get go in his first match of the year, and I would not be shocked if he is aiming to win the title here in Delray Beach. Hurkacz has a big serve, and he can move incredibly well around the court, allowing him to back his play against good returners. Will Hurkacz be able to backup a solid performance here?
This is going to be the first meeting between both players and I think this is going to be another Hubert Hurkacz domination. Hubert Hurkacz looks ready to compete and in his best form. Roberto Quiroz should not even be here, and if it was not for Ivo Karlovic's stomach bug on Sunday, he most likely would not be here. I don't see another upset on the cards here, I think Hubert Hurkacz will come out in dominating form and he will take this match in straight sets to make his way to his first semifinal of 2021.
