A trio of top North Americans were all ousted from the Delray Beach Open, as top-seeded Jack Sock, sixth-seeded John Isner and ninth-seeded Milos Raonic were all bounced from the event on Wednesday.

“It’s definitely a great win for me,” Opelka said of his win over defending champion Sock. “Jack’s a guy that I’ve always looked up to.” Sock has had a miserable start to 2018, and an injury compounded things on Wednesday. Sock took a fall in the second set and was seen grabbing at his hip throughout the rest of the match.

Speaking of misery, Isner and Raonic have had their share as well, and they couldn’t shake the blues on Wednesday.

Isner hammered 30 aces but still fell to Germany’s Peter Gojowczyk in three tiebreakers, 7-6(3), 6-7(4), 7-6(5).

Isner dropped to 2-4 on the season.

Raonic fell to 1-3 when he was defeated in straight sets by American Steve Johnson. Johnson won for the first time in four tries against Raonic.
