MM played well. Crazy good court speed and presence. But, Delpo was in pain just walking. Djoker shows more grace at the net after he obliterates a qualifier. Rubbed me the wrong way. Just sayin.
I think McDonald was just overjoyed to get his first win over a top player and couldn't help himself. I doubt he had expected to come out of this match the victor. Del Potro's movement was obviously hampered by his knee injury (didn't bother to move for several potentially returnable balls in that last set). I wonder if he came back too soon?
 
Fortunately the patella should heal, it's not in the same class of injury as the wrists. He just needs to take it easy for the next couple of months.
Good thing he lost this match. it was just silly of him to even continue on in 3rd set when he really should have defaulted. I have no idea what he was thinking.

Delpo should have stopped playing after 1st set. It was not a smart thing to do to continue

Apparently he has withdrawn from Acapulco so he’s losing 500 points as defending champion. There’s also a potential 1000 points he could drop if he also withdraws from IW.

Isner, when I was as watching the 1st set has total control and won the 1st set before I went to the grocery store. Boy, that was a total shock! LOL!
He never seems to have any luck at Delray Beach. He's played it 8 times and got as far as the semi-finals on 4 occasions (2012-14, 2019) but has never got to a final!

To the tune of winning 20 points in 12 games...and he had 0-40 on Albot’s serve to start the third set!
Funny how both finalists had to come back from losing the first set and then took charge of the rest of the match.

Incidentally, any idea what happened to the live feed? I was watching the after-match discussion between the panel and the feed suddenly ended. Haven't been able to get it back.

Then Miami, where he defends a semi for 360 points. And it's not like clay is his favorite surface where he can gain loads, and he defends a RG semi as well.

Del Potro can probably kiss YE top 10 goodbye already
 
The delray draw always seems to get blown out. This year looked to be different as delpo and isner looked to have easy rides to the final. Oops. Delray loses yet again.

This tournament is brutal for favorites. Last year's draw looked amazing and it totally blew up. Nice to Tiafoe to win the tourney but overall a disappointing Delray. The 2017 tourney had looked good with Sock and Raonic in the final.... Until Raonic withdrew on Sunday morning with an injury. No final... Just a lame 1 set exhibition with sock and some retired former pro.
 
McDonald has had a big week. He obviously hit a wall after the biggest win of his career. Similar situation at the Dallas Challenger with Krueger. He’ll stabilize
