Young vs Karlovic in Delray Beach Open final

Young vs Karlovic in Delray Beach Open final

Donald Young scored a 4-6, 6-4, 6-2 semifinal victory over Bernard Tomic and reached the Delray Beach Open final.

Young will face Ivo Karlovic, a 6-3, 6-4 winner over Adrian Mannarino. At a week shy of his 36th birthday, Karlovic, the 2010 runner-up, is the oldest finalist in the 23-year history of the tournament.

Against Tomic, Young hit eight double faults in the swirling wind - two in a row to lose his serve in the fifth game of the first set--but he also saved seven of 10 break points, including two at 4-4 in the second set, another while serving at 3-1 in the third and two more to hold for 5-2.

"I took a two-hour nap before the match and woke up irritated," said Young, who admitted that he was bothered by everything from the way a ball boy handed him his towel to the engine-revving of a courtside promotional car. "Usually those days don't turn out too well."

Kevin Anderson beat Marinko Matosevic 6-4, 7-6 to win the ATP Tour's Delray Beach International 2012 title.

Anderson couldn't convert any of his eight break chances in the second set, but he took control early in the tiebreaker to finish off the victory in just under two hours.

"Both of us were a little nervous at the start of match, so I had to find my rhythm," said Anderson.

"I think at the end, I felt I was mentally composed throughout (the tournament). I didn't let any patches of bad tennis affect my mindset."

Roddick loses to Anderson at Delray Beach

Roddick loses to Anderson at Delray Beach

Andy Roddick lost to Kevin Anderson 26 76 64 at the quarterfinals of the Delray Beach International.

“There’s not often I can look back at my career and say a serve lost me the match,” Roddick said. “But, today, that was the case. I’ve made a career of getting my first serves in.”

Despite the loss, Roddick feels his game is getting into better shape after dealing with a right hamstring and right ankle injury this season.

“I played OK this week,” Roddick said. “I returned a little bit better. I flowed a little bit better than a week ago. It’s just a matter of getting my percentage better on my serve.”

Isner into 2nd round at Delray Beach, Cilic upset

John Isner beat Jesse Levine 6-4, 7-5 in the first round at the Delray Beach International Tennis Championships 2012.

Jarkko Nieminen upset Marin Cilic 6-3, 3-6, 6-2.

Isner barely held off a tenacious Levine, who trailed his compatriot throughout the tiebreaker. The match ended when Levine’s backhand hit the top of the net and carried long, putting Isner into the second round.

“I served very well and to be honest I was very lucky to win it,” said Isner. “To be honest, if I lost that second set I didn’t really fancy my chances in the third because the humidity was getting to me.”

Roddick hopes for turnaround at Delray Beach

Roddick hopes for turnaround at Delray Beach

Andy Roddick is hoping to turn around his dismal start to the season at the Delray Beach International Tennis Championships.

Roddick usually does well in the first couple of months of the year but this time he’s battling injuries.

The American will face Philipp Petzschner in the first round at Delray Beach on Tuesday night.

“Honestly, I’m not as concerned with ranking,” Roddick said. “I just want to get into a flow again rather than some days on, some days off. I just want to play continuously for a while.”
