  • Gonzalez and Frenchman Edouard Roger-Vasselin won their third title of the year.
  • The Mexican achieves his first win in Mexico

Los Cabos, August 5, 2023.- Mexican Santiago Gonzalez and Frenchman Edouard Roger-Vasselin, top seeds, defeated German Dominik Koepfer and Australian Andrew Harris to lift the doubles title at the Mifel Tennis Open by Telcel Oppo held this week in Los Cabos.

The Mexican and the Frenchman won 6-4, 7-5 in one hour and 23 minutes to win their third title of the year after the Miami and Marseille Masters 1000 titles.

After the triumph at the Los Cabos ATP 250, Gonzalez joined compatriots Miguel Angel Reyes Varela, who won in 2018 alongside Salvadoran Marcelo Arevalo, and Hans Hach Verdugo, who along with American John Isner were champions in 2021.

The first set was defined in favor of the winners as they broke their opponents in the third game and then defended their serve for 3-1. Then both pairs held their serve until reaching 6-4.

In the second set the break for Gonzalez and Vasselin also came in the third game and they reached a 5-4 lead, but the German and the Australian broke for 5-5. Gonzalez and Vasselin recovered the break and defended their serve for 7-5.

“(Winning the title in Mexico) was something I had nailed on and well to get it today was a dream come true along with the help of Edouard. We did a good job at the end of the day and we are very happy. I’m very happy to finally win at home, trophy number 21 and to continue having a great year,” said Gonzalez after the match.

Gonzalez claimed his first title in Mexico in his second final, his first coming at the Acapulco Open 500 in 2015 alongside Poland’s Mariusz Fyrstenberg.

Tsitsipas and De Miñaur reach Los Cabos final

  • The Acapulco champion and the favorite at the Cabo Tennis Open will meet in the final of the seventh edition of the tournament.

Los Cabos, August 4, 2023.- Australian Alex de Miñaur, fifth seeded, extended this Friday his victories on Mexican soil to nine and with today’s victory he reached his 13th final on the ATP Tour. De Miñaur, current world number 19, opened the fifth day’s activity at the Mifel Tennis Open by Telcel Oppo and in two hours and 25 minutes overcame seventh-seeded German Dominik Koepfer, who suffered discomfort in his left arm during the match.

The Australian, champion at the beginning of March at the Acapulco Open 500, now has the chance to seek a Mexican double by reaching the final at Los Cabos.

During the match Koepfer felt uncomfortable from the first games of the match until he fell 6-2 in the first set in only 32 minutes and even got to tears due to the pain in his arm and for the second set he called the doctor, took a pill for the pain and put a stability sleeve on his arm.

The improvement was great as he managed to get 4-1 in the second set and finally demanded a tie break from the last champion of Acapulco, which he won. That second set lasted one hour and 21 minutes and Koepfer seemed to come back and give the surprise, however for the third set, the Australian beat him 6-1.

“I’ve played well in Mexico this year, so I think next year I’ll have to look at exactly what the weeks are, but it makes sense for me to come back here. I work hard to feel good on the court, it’s something that will never fail me,” said De Miñaur after his match.

Later, Greek top seed Stefanos Tsitsipas and Croatian Borna Coric, tied at 3-3 in direct duels, defined the second finalist, a ticket that the Greek won in a remarkable way. The world No. 5 managed to make the score 4-3 against the fourth-seeded Croatian, and settled in his 27th ATP final, third of 2023, in which he will seek his tenth career title and the first of 2023.

Coric was down 3-6 in the first set and by the second his level dropped considerably. Tsitsipas had no setback to close out the second set 6-2 and settle the match in one hour and 11 minutes.

In the final, Tsitsioas has a 9-0 record against De Miñaur and is the favorite to lift the title this Saturday in the final of the ATP 250 of Los Cabos.

Tsitsipas moves into semis at Los Cabos

  • During the early hours of the fourth day of activities in Los Cabos, the second semifinal of the singles draw was defined.

Los Cabos, August 4, 2023.- Greek Stefanos Tsitipas, top seed at the Mifel Tennis Open by Telcel Oppo, knew it was going to be a tough match against Nicolas Jarry (No. 28). The Chilean is coming off solid weeks on the circuit, where he even took Carlos Alcaraz to four sets at Wimbledon and during the seventh edition of the ATP 250 tournament in Los Cabos, he did not disappoint by putting on a great show against the favorite in the stellar match at the Estadio Mextenis.

However, the world No. 5 managed to overcome a battle that lasted 3 hours, with two tie breaks in the first two sets, to finally define the score in his favor 6-7(7), (7)7-6, 6-2 and thus continue with perfect pace his debut in the Mexican tournament.

This was the first meeting on hard court between the two, since the two previous times that the Chilean had beaten Tsitsipas was on grass, while Stefanos had a previous victory against him on clay. Now the favorite in the ATP 250, continues in search of his tenth title in the circuit and first in 2023 after regaining his focus on the clay.

“I feel good and let’s go for the next one. Sometimes it seems that this kind of matches are necessary for continuity in a tournament. You get to play tennis at a lot of intensity at a high level. I hope I can move stronger from now on and take as much as I can” assured an exhausted Stefanos Tsitsipas after his match.

While Jarry, who even vomited during the match due to the physical demand in which the game unfolded, confessed that “There is progress, I try to stay with that. That’s how matches against the best are, they are small details that we have to make strong and it’s the only way to do it. These types of players don’t give you one,” he concluded after 1 a.m. in Los Cabos.

At the end of the match, it was the turn of the Croatian Borna Coric against Ilya Ivashka, where the fourth seed managed to beat the Belarusian 6-3, 6-4 to seal his pass to the semifinals in Los Cabos, where he will face Stefanos Tsitsipas this Friday.

The new generation of Mexican tennis players raise their hand in Los Cabos

  • Rodrigo Pacheco, Luis Carlos Alvarez and Luca Lemaitre stand out at the Mifel Tennis Open by Telcel Oppo 2023.

Los Cabos, August 2, 2023.- The new generation of Mexican tennis players is already a reality and has raised its hand at the ATP 250 in Los Cabos. Juniors Rodrigo Pacheco, Luis Carlos Alvarez and Luca Lemaitre stood out these days at the start of the Mifel Tennis Open by Telcel Oppo 2023.

In their first steps in international professional tournaments, the three have been gaining experience that will help them in their development in professional tennis.

With the support and encouragement of Mextenis, the three 18-year-old players, who emerged under the Tenis Con Pasión (TCP) player development program, based in Yucatan, have been showing signs of their potential and although they are in their first steps in professional tennis, they are called to be the next Mexican players to follow.

Through wildcards, Pacheco in the main draw and Alvarez and Lemaitre in the qualy, the three young players showed remarkable progress in their participation in the tournament.

The three of us have been training together for two years, which has helped a lot, with Luca and Rodrigo, we are great friends, brothers and great partners,” said Alvarez, who won his first qualy match on Saturday by defeating Brazil’s Eduardo Ribeiro 6-4, 6-4 and although he lost the second match 7-5, 5-7, 6-4, he had a good participation.

Alvarez said that the three of them push each other and motivate each other to keep growing and that has helped them to improve at an individual level.

“We are always at the limit, when we train we all want to win all the time, but it is a healthy competition and that has helped us all to improve our level little by little”, he said after his second match of the qualy where he faced Chilean Gonzalo Lama.

Meanwhile, Lemaitre lost in the first round of qualifying after losing 7-6, 6-4 in a disputed match against Kazakhstan’s Beibit Zhukayev (270 ATP), and Pacheco faced a more experienced opponent, Chile’s Nicolas Jarry (29 ATP), and although both lost, they gained valuable experience in Los Cabos.

Just 5 years ago, Alvarez was playing in the finals of the Cabo Cup children’s tournament, and today at almost 19 years old, which he will be on September 3, he reached the qualy of the ATP 250 in Los Cabos through a wild card.

In the first semester of the year, Alvarez has been developing his tennis with the Sooners of the University of Oklahoma.

While Pacheco faced in the first round of the main draw against Chilean Nicolas Jarry, to whom he lost 6-3, 6-1 leaving his progress evident and taking the best learning from the defeat.

“I am learning, doing things well, sometimes I feel I can give more. I feel that if I do things right, I gain weight, I get physically stronger, logically everything will improve, the speed of my legs, the strength in my serve and my strokes so I hope that soon those things will be reflected and if not, this is a very long race, I do not want to hurry, I want to improve every day to be better so when the time comes to be 100% I will be ready and take advantage of it”, said Pacheco after his match.

Mexicans Pacheco and Escobedo say goodbye to Los Cabos

  • Pacheco lost to Chilean Jarry and Escobedo to Jung, from Chinese Taipei.

The Mexican started the match settled on the court facing a loose Jarry and forced to win.

In the first set, the Mexican was 2-3, but in the sixth game Jarry broke and defended his serve for 2-5, then Pacheco defended his serve and the Chilean closed for 6-3.

It was not an easy match for Jarry, (No. 26), as the Mexican demanded him to play up to 80 minutes of the match.

“He started solid in the first set, but in the second I raised the level and it was a little more difficult for him. He’s a good kid, you can see his potential, he’s fast and left-handed. Now the important thing is that he stays humble and hardworking because it’s not easy to reach the top and that he keeps improving his head”, said Jarry about the Mexican after the match.

Earlier, Ernesto Escobedo gave hope to the Mexican fans by beating Jung 6-3 in the first set.

In the third, Escobedo, already exhausted, surrendered the set 6-2.
