Mexico’s Reyes Varela and Argentina’s Andreozzi advance to quarterfinals 

  • They joined the pair formed by Mexican Hans Hach Verdugo and Venezuelan Luis David Martinez in the second round.

Los Cabos, February 20, 2024.- Mexico’s Miguel Angel Reyes Varela and Argentina’s Guido Andreozzi advanced this Tuesday to the second round of the doubles tournament of the Mifel Tennis Open by Telcel Oppo 2024 in Los Cabos.

The Latin American pair beat Finland’s Harri Heliovaara and Australia’s John Peers, the third seeded pair, 1-6, 7-6 (6), 11-9.

“It was a difficult start, we were 5-0 down in the first set, but it was a bit misleading score, because in the first set the two breaks they get are in decisive point, then we won our first game at the end of the set and to start the second we went from less to more, Reyes Varela told the media. 

The Mexican said that together with Andreozzi “we showed the courage to go for our opportunities and in the end we were able to close the match that fell on our side”.

For a place in the semifinals, Reyes Varela and Andreozzi will play against Mexico’s Hans Hach Verdugo and Venezuela’s Luis David Martinez.

Reyes Varela said that they are going to prepare the match “and enjoy it among friends and now yes, let the tennis come out and let the local public enjoy because we will be happy that a Mexican is in the semifinals”.

“We know each other well and there will be no surprises, it will be to see who can execute better at the time of the opportunities”, exposed the Mexican.

On the same day, the Australian pair formed by Max Purcell and Jordan Thompson, fourth seeded, defeated brothers Stefanos and Petros Tsitsipas 6-4, 6-3.

Meanwhile, the American William Blumberg and the Norwegian Casper Ruud won 6-3, 6-3 against the British Jack Draper and Daniel Evans.

MEXTENIS Stadiun vibrates on its first night

  • Three matches were played on the opening night of the eighth edition of the Mifel Tennis Open by Telcel Oppo

Los Cabos, February 19, 2024.- Three singles matches were played at the Mextenis Stadium on the opening day of the Mifel Tennis Open by Telcel Oppo. The action started at 4:00 p.m. local time with the match between Daniel Evans and Roman Safiullin, followed by a close match between Max Purcell and Matteo Arnaldi, while Thanasi Kokkinakis closed Monday night against Jack Draper.

The all-star match went to three sets after the Australian managed to discomfort the young Draper and define the match in almost three hours 4-6, 7-6(5), 6-4. Kokkinakis did not look like a favorite when facing the No. 53 ranked player, however his familiarity with the Los Cabos ATP 250, the schedule, weather and fan support served as factors in his victory over the Briton. The tie break of the second set ended up frustrating Draper, on the other hand Thanasi, who was a finalist in 2017, managed to break serve at a crucial moment of the third set and with service for the match did not miss the opportunity to clinch his ticket.

Previously, the 22 year old Italian took his duel against Purcell to a third set that ended in a 6-4, 4-6, 6-4 victory for the Australian after two and a half hours of play. Arnaldi was a recent Davis Cup champion with Italy and is one of the promises of the circuit, however he ran into a solid night from the world No. 51 and said goodbye to Los Cabos prematurely.

“It was a very physical match but I gained confidence… The weather is cold, I would have liked to play during the day but obviously there would not be people, but no doubt many of us enjoy being here, it is very nice here in Mexico” said after his victory Max Purcell, who will meet his opponent in the second round this Tuesday between Dominik Koepfer and Nuno Borges.

For his part, Evans, currently ranked No. 42, celebrated effusively his victory over No. 38 Safiullin, whom he defeated 6-2, 6-4. The 33-year-old Briton has two ATP titles to his name and his best moment came in the summer of 2023 when he reached the No. 21 ranking. Now he will have to face Kokkinakis for a ticket to the third round.

Meda Day in Los Cabos, find out what the protagonists had to say

  • During the Media Day, the main players of the eighth edition of the ATP 250 revealed their feelings about the start of the tournament and their impressions of Los Cabos.

Los Cabos, February 18, 2024.- Prior to the start of the tournament, the protagonists of the eighth edition of the Mifel Tennis Open by Telcel Oppo chatted with the media present about their tennis moment and their first sensations in Los Cabos, which for the first time hosts the ATP 250 in the month of February.

For Norwegian Casper Ruud, world No. 12, the new date on which the tournament is held prior to the Mexican Open is convenient for the players. 

“It’s a great schedule, having the two tournaments back to back, it makes sense for a lot of players. It’s a long trip from Norway to Mexico but if you come two or three weeks it’s much more worth it. A week before Acapulco, I hope it stays that way, it’s become one of my favorite stops in the year.”

On his first impressions of the destination he added “Amazing, it’s beautiful, it feels good to be here, I’m happy! It’s a privilege to wake up and see the ocean every day. I grew up near the sea in Norway, in different conditions, but I always feel good next to the ocean. This place has been amazing since we arrived, I’ve had good practices, relaxed, enjoyed the beach, went swimming in the morning, everything fantastic.”

Alexander Zverev, the tournament’s top seed and also making his debut in Los Cabos agrees with Ruud: “I’ve always liked the heat, it’s a beautiful place, we all enjoy being here. Perfect schedule, I hope it stays that way. It’s one of the strongest 250s out there and a lot of players understand that, that it’s great preparation for the North American swing (tour). And we have whales jumping in the ocean!”

For his part, defending champion Stefanos Tsitsipas recalled his experience a few months ago at 2023. 

“Last year I suffered it, it was very hot and humid. Much better this year, friendlier conditions for the body, they are some of the best to play tennis.” 

He also made clear his goals in his visit to the country “I want to have two good weeks in Mexico, I feel a great relationship with the fans, I feel very welcome, it is warm, wake up, be on the beach and do what I love which is to play tennis”.

Also present with the media was the Argentine Diego Schwartzman, who arrives to the main draw with invitation of the tournament and lived the experience in the previous venue where he was champion in 2019. 

“It’s all nicer than when it was played in August, which is very hard in the day and night because of the humidity. I think that for the players who want to come from Latin America it helps them a lot, changing to February is for the better, positive for the region. It’s amazing to go back to places like this!”

The eighth edition is played a week before the Abierto Mexicano Telcel presented by HSBC in Acapulco.

Since its first edition in 2016, the tournament’s champions have included Ivo Karlovic, Sam Querrey, Fabio Fognini, Diego Schwartzman, Cameron Norrie, Daniil Medvedev and Stefanos Tsitsipas.

Mexican Rubio Fierros says goodbye to Los Cabos in Qualy

  • The Mexican took a set from Japanese Yosuke Watanuki but it was not enough.

Los Cabos, February 17, 2024.- The only Mexican in the qualy of the Mifel Tennis Open by Telcel Oppo 2024, Alan Rubio Fierros said goodbye this Saturday in the opening day of the qualifying tournament in Los Cabos after losing in three sets to Japan’s Yosuke Watanuki.

The winners of Saturday’s qualifying tournament in Los Cabos play this Sunday. The duels are Watanuki-Holt, Mayo-Nava, Kovacevic-Svajda and Cobolli-Polmans and the winners will get the four tickets to the main draw, which starts on Monday.

The Mifel Tennis Open by Telcel Oppo 2024 boasts in its eighth edition a draw with star players such as German Alexander Zverev (No.6), Greek Stefanos Tsitsipas (No.10), 2023 finalist, Australian Alex de Miñaur (No.11) and Norwegian Casper Ruud (No.12).

The best ATP 250 tournament in Latin America will have a main singles draw of 28 players and 16 doubles pairs. The eighth edition is played a week before the Abierto Mexicano Telcel presented by HSBC in Acapulco.

Since its first edition in 2016, the tournament’s champions include Ivo Karlovic, Sam Querrey, Fabio Fognini, Diego Schwartzman, Cameron Norrie, Daniil Medvedev and Stefanos Tsitsipas.


  • The Australian tennis player’s record during 2023 was 46 wins and 26 losses, which allowed him to enter the Top 10 in January 2024 
  • In 2023 Alex de Miñaur reached five finals, one of which he won.

Mexico City, February 15, 2024.- Tennis player Alex de Miñaur will arrive at the Abierto Mexicano Telcel presented by HSBC as the reigning champion after defeating American Tommy Paul last year in a match that was decided in three sets, but that was not the only final the Australian reached, as he was close to lifting four other championships throughout the season to consolidate the best of his career.

After Acapulco, the Australian reached the prelude to four titles, but did not have the same luck as in Mexico. 

In June, the Australian reached the final of the Queen’s Club in London, a tournament that serves as preparation for Wimbledon, where he lost to the Spaniard Carlos Alcaraz after leaving the likes of Andy Murray, Diego Schwartzman, Adrian Mannarino and Holger Rune in the way.

In July he returned to Mexico to take part in the Mifel Tennis Open by Telcel Oppo 2023 in Los Cabos and played in the final match against Greek Stefanos Tsitsipas.

Weeks after Los Cabos, Alex de Miñaur reached the final of the Toronto Masters, but did not have a good match and was defeated by the Italian Jannik Sinner, thus adding his third lost final of the year.

Curiously, in November he faced Sinner again, but now in the Davis Cup Finals held in Malaga, Spain. 

His record during 2023 was 46 wins and 26 losses, which allowed him to enter the Top 10 of the Pepperstone ATP Rankings in January and achieve the best position of his career by reaching the 10th step. 

At the beginning of the 2024 season, the 24-year-old Australian player lost in the round of 16 of the Australian Open against German Alexander Zverev; however, in Acapulco he will try to defend his title and continue climbing positions in the ranking.

Let’s dream of a spectacular week(e)nd in Los Cabos with Casper Ruud

  • The Norwegian tennis player shared his ‘Spotify Wrapped’ confirming his taste for the music of Canadian singer ‘The Weeknd’.
  • The tournaments in the American continent are going well for the Oslo-born player and he will be looking for a new title in the ATP circuit in Los Cabos.

Mexico City, December 1, 2023.- Casper Ruud’s passion for sports – not only tennis, but also golf – is complemented by his extreme taste for music, especially the music of Canadian singer and producer Abel Makkonen Tesfaye, better known as ‘The Weeknd’.

Each year, the Spotify platform shares a summary (Spotify Wrapped) of what 

each user listens to most frequently over the past twelve months. In this 2023, what the Norwegian tennis player listened to the most was precisely The Weeknd. 

On several occasions, the Oslo-born tennis player and winner of 10 titles in the ATP circuit, has shared his taste for music and has uploaded different videos to his social networks enjoying the concerts of the Canadian artist. Let’s hope that at the Mifel Tennis Open by Telcel Oppo 2024 we can witness a spectacular weekend with the best of his repertoire on the court of the Cabo Sports Complex. 

Casper Ruud’s love for sports is not limited to tennis, a passion he inherited from his father and coach, Christian Ruud, who until before his son appeared 

on the ATP circuit, was considered the best Norwegian tennis player in history.

When Christian Ruud retired, he started going to the golf courses and it was in those recreational times that Casper also took a liking to this sport to the extent that at the age of 14 he had to decide whether he would continue his sports career with a racket or with a golf club, we all know how this story ended. 

Casper Ruud’s career has been meteoric since that August 2015 when he started scoring in the ATP ranking in the 1645th place, until his best position in his career, climbing up to the number 2 ATP ranking in December 2022. 

The tournaments in the American continent are given to the Norwegian tennis player, since the first title in his 

career he won in Buenos Aires (2020) and he did it again in 2022, he also won in San Diego, California in 2021 and hopefully in 2024 he will be among the contenders for the title of the Mifel Tennis Open by Telcel Oppo 2024.

New champion in Los Cabos: Stefanos Tsitsipas

  • The Greek will move up one place in the rankings after winning the 250 title in Los Cabos.
  • In his second final in Mexico, he adds his tenth title and first of the 2023 season.

Los Cabos, August 5, 2023.- It was a dream final at the MIfel Tennis Open by Telcel Oppo between top seed Stefanos Tsitsipas and Australian Alex de Miñaur, the last champion in Acapulco. In one hour and 27 minutes, the Greek triumphed in his second final on Mexican soil and won 6-3, 6-4 to win his tenth title.

It was the tenth meeting between the two and for the first time in his career Tsitsipas has a 10-0 record against the same opponent. De Miñaur ended his streak of 9 consecutive wins in Mexico. Now Stefanos, who will turn 25 on August 12, will climb to No. 4 in the ATP rankings after his first title of 2023 after starting the season as the star of the Australian Open. The Greek had not been crowned champion since Majorca 2022, ending a 10-month drought.

“The trophy will have a special place in my house. I’ll take the positives from the week, I think I had good matches and it’s the start. We experienced some good tennis, good competition. I’m happy to leave with the trophy and the title” he said in conference after his final.

Six-time Grand Slam semifinalist and with such success with the Mexican public, Tsitsipas confirmed his presence for the February 2024 back to back, so his presence, subject to injuries, is guaranteed in Los Cabos and Acapulco.

Alex de Miñaur was close to his eighth title and a double in Mexico, but lost his serve twice in each set to fall to the Greek, who closed his participation in the Cabo Tennis Open with 28 aces.

Tsitsipas was dominant in his four matches played in Los Cabos and in the end lifted the title. He assures that he will always prioritize coming to Mexico over Washington because of the deal. At the end he concluded joking that what he longs for the most is a lemon ice cream that he tasted in Acapulco and that he will seek this year to surpass the ranking of his girlfriend Paula Badosa who became second in the world.
