The victory of the Australian, champion of the Acapulco ATP 500, was relatively accessible and he closed it out in 65 minutes.

De Miñaur and Paul starred in the final in Acapulco and now they will face each other again in the quarterfinals of Los Cabos.
“It’s going to be a very tough match, as it was in Acapulco”, said the Australian, who is looking for the double in Mexico.
On his part, the sixth seed, the Chilean Jarry advanced to the round of the best eight by achieving a hard-fought 7-6, 4-6, 6-4 victory over the Dutchman Brouwer in two hours and 40 minutes of match.
“There are matches that you have to win no matter what and today was one of those, it is very important because at this level everyone is strong,” said Jarry after the match. The Chilean will play in the next round against the winner of the duel between the Greek Stefanos Tsitsipas and the American John Isner.
