Former U.S. Davis Cup players Mardy Fish, James Blake and Vince Spadea will compete for TEAM USA against an international team made up of former Australian Open finalist Fernando Gonzalez of Chile, four-time Grand Slam semifinalist Sebastien Grosjean of France, and former French Open finalist Mikael Pernfors of Sweden at the Delray Beach ATP Champions Tour event, held during the 10-day Delray Beach Open from Feb. 17-26, 2017.

The tournament is celebrating its 25th edition in 2017.

A holiday ticket promotion features ALL box and reserved (sections A-J) seats at 20 percent off. The discount is also applicable to the tournament’s celebratory-priced $25.25 box and reserved seats for all ATP Champions Tour sessions, commemorating the event’s 25th edition. The holiday promotion ends Jan. 1, 2017 at midnight.

All three Team USA players — Fish, Blake and Spadea — have reached a Delray Beach Open singles final or better while competing on the ATP World Tour. Fish won the 2009 title, Blake reached back-to-back finals in 2007-08, and Spadea reached the 2004 final.

The ATP World Tour field already includes world No. 3 Milos Raonic, 2009 US Open champion and 2011 Delray Beach Open champion Juan Martin del Potro, world No. 20 and 2015 Delray Beach Open champion Ivo Karlovic, world No. 23 and No. 2 American Jack Sock, and the Bryan Brothers, the top doubles team of all-time.

The event’s pre-qualifying “Survivor” event was won by 24-year-old Peter Nagy, a native Hungarian who attended Texas A&M. Ranked No. 415 on the ATP World Tour, in the tournament final he beat Ty Trombetta of Hallendale, Fla., 6-7, 6-4, 6-4 to win the wild card into the 16-player Delray Beach Open singles qualifying tournament.

Nagy won five matches over four days to top the 93-player field.

“It feels awesome and it’s amazing to be in my first qualifying of an ATP World Tour event,” Nagy said. “I can’t wait to do some damage.”
