With world No. 10 Milos Raonic in the fold, the Delray Beach Open is celebrating the signing of the highest-ranked singles player in its 24-year history.

Already the top Canadian in tennis history, Raonic has reached a career-best No. 4 in the world, played in the 2014 Wimbledon semifinals and reached Grand Slam quarterfinals at Roland Garros in 2014 and the Australian Open this past January.

The tournament also announced that the world No. 1 Bryan Brothers doubles team will be returning in search of their third straight title and fifth overall in Delray Beach. Delray Beach’s ATP World Tour event, in its 18th year in the City, will be played February 12-21, 2016 at the Delray Beach Stadium & Tennis Center.

“While we’ve had players in our draw who have higher career rankings, like former world No. 1s Andre Agassi and Andy Roddick, no player has committed to the Delray Beach Open with a ranking higher than Raonic’s,” said tournament director Mark Baron. “He’s one of the bright young players on the ATP World Tour and the tennis world is enthusiastic about his game.”

“I really look forward to coming down to Florida to play in Delray Beach,” said the 24-year old Raonic, who moved from Montenegro to Canada as a three-year-old. “It will be my first time competing in the event and have heard many great things about the tournament from my fellow competitors. I am excited to play in front of the great crowds and hopefully many Canadians spending their winters in Florida will come out to watch.”

While Raonic is a new face in the Delray Beach singles draw, the Bryan Brothers have won four Delray Beach Open doubles titles since 2009. As the most celebrated team in tennis history, the twins have won 109 ATP titles, 16 at Grand Slam tournaments, and won the gold medal at the 2012 London Olympics.

“Delray Beach has become a regular spot for us on our schedule, and it’s a place where we’ve enjoyed a lot of success over the last few years,” said Bob Bryan, a resident of South Florida’s Sunny Isles neighborhood. “It’s also a fun tournament because of the off-court Bryan Bros Band performances we’ve been able to share with sponsors and patrons. We’re looking forward to our fans coming out and cheering us on as we go for our fifth title.”

The tournament also announced that Raonic’s first-round match will be played during the night session on Tuesday, February 16, with the Bryans beginning defense of their doubles title on Wednesday, February 17 during the evening session.

The Delray Beach Open also includes an ATP Champions Tour event, which brings legends of the game into town for the opening weekend of the 10-day event.

Individual seats are available for all 17 sessions, including “Best Seats in the House” and covered Veranda seats.

A variety of series packages are also available and popular with fans. Courtside Box Series tournament packages are $1,500 for two seats, or $2,500 for four, while the on-court Best Seats in the House package is $3,000 for two seats, or $4,500 for four.

A Reserved Diamond Series ticket includes all 17 sessions of the ATP Champions Tour and ATP World Tour events (Friday, Feb. 12 – Sunday, Feb. 21, 2016) for $500 in sections A – O. Seats are located just behind the box seats and have back support and arm rests. The most popular ticket – the Weekender Series – includes a reserved seat for the quarterfinals, semifinals and finals (sessions 13-17) for $200.

The event’s new Sky Suites and Sky Boxes start at $7,000 for all 17 sessions. Sky Suites and Sky Boxes accommodate 8 to 24 people and include food and beverage options.

Fans can order tickets online at  Delray Beach Open Tickets, visit the on-site box office at 30 NW 1st Avenue in Delray Beach, or call 561-330-6000.
