A steady, all-day rain throughout South Florida caused the postponement of Sunday’s Delray Beach Open finals. Both the singles and doubles title matches in the ATP Tour 250 outdoor hard court event were rescheduled for Monday at the Delray Beach Tennis Center.

The doubles final between top seeds Santiago Gonzalez of Mexico and Neal Skupski of Great Britain and No. 3 seeds Julian Cash of Great Britain and Robert Galloway of the United States will begin at 10 a.m. (4 p.m. CET).

The singles championship between top seed Taylor Fritz and No. 3 seed Tommy Paul, both of the United States, will start not before 12:30 p.m. (6:30 p.m. CET).

Fritz is attempting to win his first ATP Tour title of 2024 and become the second player in Delray Beach Open tournament history following Jason Stoltenberg in 1996-97 to successfully defend the title. Meanwhile, Paul, who won the Dallas Open last week and is on a career-best seven-match winning streak, is looking to become the first American to win back-to-back tour-level titles in consecutive weeks since John Isner accomplished the feat in 2017 at Newport and Atlanta.
