Prince George's County native Frances Tiafoe, the second-ranked American and world No. 29 who won his first ATP title in Delray a year ago, lost his opening-round match to Daniel Evans 3-6, 7-6 (1), 7-5 on a windy Tuesday night at Delray Beach Tennis Center. Tiafoe, 21, had his serve broken three times in the third set. Leading 4-1, Evans won four consecutive games to take a 5-4 advantage before Tiafoe, on the ropes, broke Evans' serve to knot it back up, 5-5. Evans, the 28-year-old British, then won the ensuing two games, breaking Tiafoe and finally serving for the victory. Tiafoe lost match point when he hit a shot from up close into the net. Visibly frustrated, the tournament's No. 2 seed was left slamming his racket on the stadium court's hard surface after shaking hands with Evans. "Very frustrating, very frustrating," Tiafoe said. "I knew it was going to be tough, but I definitely shouldn't have lost tonight. I probably rushed on big points. Definitely wasn't expecting this, especially when I was winning by so much. It is what it is. Got to keep going, got to keep grinding."
