Sock beats Johnson to set up Delray semifinal against Young

February 24, 2017

DELRAY BEACH, Fla. (AP) Jack Sock moved into the semifinals at the Delray Beach Open by beating Steve Johnson 6-4, 7-6 (4) in an all-American matchup Friday.

Sock will play yet another American on Saturday for a berth in the final: Donald Young, who didn't even need to play a point to get there. Young's quarterfinal opponent, Steve Darcis, withdrew from the tournament, citing personal reasons.

The third-seeded Sock has not dropped a set at the hard-court event as he seeks his second title of 2017, third of his career. Young has never won an ATP title. Sock is 2-0 against Young in previous meetings.

The quarterfinals in the other half of the draw were scheduled for Friday night: defending champion Sam Querrey vs. 2009 U.S. Open champion Juan Martin del Potro, and top-seeded Milos Raonic vs. Kyle Edmund.
