Fourth-seeded Hubert Hurkacz converted four of his five break-point opportunities while cruising to a 6-3, 6-3 win over Sebastian Korda on Wednesday in the final of the Delray Beach (Fla.) Open.

Hurkacz, a 23-year-old from Poland, captured the second ATP Tour title of his career. He also won the 2019 Winston-Salem (N.C.) Open last year.

Korda, a 20-year-old Florida native and the son of former Grand Slam champion Petr Korda, appeared in the first final of his career.

Korda broke serve in the first game of the match, then never had another break point against Hurkacz's serve. Hurkacz put 76 percent of his first serves in play while Korda was at 60 percent.

Antalya Open

Fourth-seeded Alex de Minaur of Australia secured his fourth career ATP Tour singles title after Alexander Bublik of Kazakhstan retired two games into the first set of the final in Antalya, Turkey.

de Minaur, who outlasted No. 2 seed David Goffin of Belgium 6-4, 3-6, 6-2 on Tuesday, previously won ATP Tour hard-court titles in 2019 at the Sydney International, the Truist Atlanta Open and the Zhuhai Championships.
