Zverev, Tsitsipas and Ruud advance to quarterfinals

  • Three of the top four seeds, Zverev, Tsitsipas and Ruud advanced after their debut in the eighth edition of the ATP 250 Los Cabos.

Los Cabos, February 21, 2024.- The third day of activity in the main draw of the Mifel Tennis Open by Telcel Oppo closed with pleasant sensations after three of the top four seeds advanced to the quarterfinals.

The action began once again at 4:00 p.m. local time with the match between Alex de Miñaur (No. 9) and Alex Michelsen, where the 2023 finalist and third seed was surprisingly defeated 6-4, 6-1 by the 19-year-old American in just 1 hour 22 minutes of play. 

The Australian had just reached the final in Rotterdam and will now seek to defend his title at the Mexican Open in Acapulco later this month, where he will have more time to adjust to the conditions of the court.

Michelsen, who just made his debut in the summer of 2023 and has been one of the most sensational players under 20 years old in the tour, will face another Australian in the next round, Jordan Thompson, and in the same bracket is the top seed Alexander Zverev.

The stellar match at the Mextenis Stadium was precisely that of the German, who is visiting the tournament for the first time in Los Cabos. He started his week as favorite without complications and breaking Yoshihito Nishioka’s first serve. While it took him almost 40 minutes to close the first set, he defined the second in less than 20 minutes and in an hour he was celebrating with all the support of the public his resounding victory 6-3, 6-0 and assured that he was working on his serve to see how almost perfect he was during the game.

“There are very good players here, they have been in great finals, but being the top seed I understand that I become a favorite and I welcome my role, I take my matches very seriously. I have always said it, I have great memories of Mexico so I really enjoy the loud and passionate fans,” he said after the match.

Earlier, defending champion Stefanos Tsitsipas, ranked No. 11, faced Aleksandar Vukic (No.72), who had suffered a close first match on Tuesday against Mexican Rodrigo Pacheco. However, the Greek had no complications against the Australian and defeated him with a solid first serve in one hour with 6-3, 6-0. With all the love from the local crowd, Tsitsipas will now face Aleksandar Kovaceciv, who came from the qualifiers, in the quarterfinals.

“I feel it’s a privilege to be back, it’s great to be in Los Cabos. I was thrilled with this first victory, I hope I can continue on this path, with the mentality I showed today and those good intentions on the court when I have things under control… I feel motivated to be back in the Top 10” confessed the Greek in conference.

Finally, Casper Ruud (No. 12), another debutant at the ATP 250 in Los Cabos, managed to defeat the recent Dallas Open finalist, Marcos Giron, 6-1, 6-0, on the Grandstand also in one hour. 

The Norwegian assures that conditions like those offered by the Cabo Sports Complex benefit his game. “I played very well, moved well, good forehand, felt comfortable. I’ve been here since Tuesday last week, so more than a week to try to be ready and I feel confident every day. I’m happy with the almost perfect match.” In his key he faces Portugal’s Nuno Borges (No. 47) in the quarterfinals.
