Defending champions Marin Cilic (singles) and the Bryan Brothers (doubles) will be returning to play in the Delray Beach Open , scheduled for February 13-22 at the Delray Beach Stadium & Tennis Center. The ATP World Tour event is in its 23rd year, and 17th in Delray Beach.
The announcement comes as the event kicks off its annual pre-sale during the US Open by offering a 20 percent discount on all individual seats, including the on-court “Best Seats in the House” and covered Veranda seats, as well as courtside box seats and reserved seating; specially-priced packages will also be available during the pre-sale that runs from Friday, August 22 – Monday, September 8.
“We want 2015 to be special and memorable,” says tournament director Mark Baron. “Welcoming our defending champions back is our first step in building a great field for our fans.”
Cilic won the 2014 Delray Beach singles title over Kevin Anderson in February in the longest final (3 hours, 9 minutes) in tournament history.
“It was great for me to win another trophy on US soil and at Delray (Beach) I enjoyed playing some of my best tennis of my career,” said Cilic. “I’m looking forward to coming back next year. It’s going to be definitely a nice challenge to try to win back-to-back titles. I’m going to enjoy the crowd there and the atmosphere which is really nice.”
The Croat broke into the Top 20 soon after leaving Delray Beach, continuing his stellar play by putting together a 40-win season and reaching the quarterfinals at Wimbledon in June against
The world No. 1 Bryan Brothers make history every time they step on the court, and the two are aiming for their 100th ATP World Tour title at the upcoming US Open.

Fans will also have the opportunity to see the twins on stage as The Bryan Brothers Band will perform during the event.
“We love playing in Delray Beach because it’s such an intimate atmosphere and one of the great stops on the Tour,” said Mike Bryan. “We’re excited to be playing for our fourth title there, and picking up our guitars and performing on the main stage during the week is also a thrill for us.”
The Bryans’ quest to defend their title starts with their first-round match on Wednesday, February 18 in the 12:30 pm feature slot of the day session.
