Many players use Delray Beach Open event and the subsequent Acapulco and Dubai tournaments to start Indian Wells and Miami Masters at their best forms. Weather conditions and surfaces are very similar to the latter two.
Weather and Courts
The two weeks weather forecast in Delray Beach includes rains. High humidity will make it hard to perform for those who have recently played indoors. In Florida it will be in 20s °C, which makes the tournament very attractive: you may not make a deep run, but will enjoy swimming and sunbathing. After the indoors events the courts will seem slower and will favor the baseliners, technical players and those who like to produce powerful shots. It is also forecasted that the weather will be not without wind and it will also affect the playing conditions.
The Delray Beach champions differ every single year. It’s a rare case that the champion will come to defend the points. What comes as a surprise is that the US natives seldom win the title. Yes, last year Sam Querrey won the tournament, while the previous US winner was Mardy Fish in 2009. It is another acknowledgement of the fact that the big serving American tennis style is not the most efficient for Florida courts.
We’d like to mention Juan Martin Del Potro. The Argentine should strive for big result and he’s one of the main favorites for the title. Milos Raonic will also compete for the victory. The Canadian has greatly improved his performance in rallies and it should help him become more competitive.
Who can prevent these two? Ryan Harrison who spent a solid week in Memphis, Jack Sock, Steve Johnson, Ivo Karlovic, Taylor Fritz and Nikoloz Basilashvili. The Georgian has also been at his maximum in Memphis.
The rest of the players in draw are less competitive and will hardly be dangerous.

IMHO Federer will win like 6:2 6:4 or so.

Probably. But Johnson's service is good, so Roger will rarely make more than one break in a set.
