The Delray Beach Open by The Venetian® Las Vegas has received the Official Entry List for its 2014 ATP World Tour event coming up Feb. 17-23 at the Delray Beach Stadium & Tennis Center. The event is in its 22nd year, and 16th in Delray Beach. The latest stars to join the 32-player field included Top 30 players Feliciano Lopez of Spain and Vasek Pospisil of Canada, No. 2 American Sam Querrey, and former Delray Beach finalists Marinko Matosevic (2012) and Ivo Karlovic (2010). Overall, four Top 20 players and six of the world’s Top 30 will make up the Delray Beach field. Singles stars who committed early to play include Top 20s Tommy Haas (No. 12), American John Isner (No. 14), Kei Nishikori (No. 17) and Kevin Anderson (No. 20) as well as 2012 world No. 8 Janko Tipsarevic, former world No. 1 Lleyton Hewitt, and former world Top 10s Marin Cilic and Marcos Baghdatis. Isner looks to move up in the rankings after winning his eighth career ATP title at the Heineken Open last week. Hewitt, the two-time Grand Slam champion, beat Roger Federer in the 2014 opening-week Brisbane final. Hewitt (1999), Haas (2006), Nishikori (2008) and Anderson (2012) are all former Delray Beach champions, while Tipsarevic was the 2011 runner-up.
