UPDATE 1-Tennis-Opelka fires 27 aces in beating Nishioka in FloridaReuters | Updated: 24-02-2020 06:33 IST | Created: 24-02-2020 04:39 IST
The fourth-seeded Opelka clinched victory in style, pounding his 27th ace of the match down the centre line for a 7-5 6-7(4) 6-2 triumph. The American had surprised Canada's second-seeded Milos Raonic 4-6 7-6(6) 6-3 in their rain-delayed semi-final earlier on Sunday to set up the meeting with the rested Nishioka. Nishioka had beaten France's Ugo Humbert 1-6 6-4 6-0 on Saturday before rain washed out other matches at the Florida tournament.
Opelka's only other title came a year ago in the New York Open.
