TennisSection previews the 2023 Delray Beach Open as Tommy Paul takes on Denis Kudla in the Round of 16 on Thursday, February 16, 2023.
Will Tommy Paul get the win? Will Denis Kudla pull off the upset? This will be an interesting one, where we have an all-American matchup for a spot in the last eight. Who will triumph and move through to the quarterfinals at the 2023 Delray Beach Open?
Tommy Paul is coming off a semifinal appearance at the Australian Open, a remarkable result for him and no doubt he is surging with confidence. Let’s see if he can maintain his level and put up a solid opening performance against fellow American Denis Kudla. Paul will be a strong contender here for the title as the 2nd seed here at the 2023 Delray Beach Open.
Denis Kudla has a very tough match ahead of him in Tommy Paul, if he wants to win this one, he’s going to have to try and wear down Tommy Paul. With how well Paul moves and defends, I don’t see Kudla being able to make any inroads with aggressive play, so he’ll need to try and keep the rallies long and do his best on serve, either way, he’s got a hard match ahead of him at the 2023 Delray Beach Open.
Tommy Paul and Denis Kudla have met once before, with Tommy Paul leading the head to head 1-0. Their one meeting came in Washington in 2019, with Paul winning 6-0 6-4, despite being several years off his prime, he easily won then, and I expect no less in this encounter as Paul looks ahead to the quarterfinals of the 2023 Delray Beach Open.
