Who are the Top 20 that will come to the Los Cabos Open?
Six of the top 20 tennis players in the world will be at the Los Cabos Open. In addition to the participation of John Isner, Nuno Borges and Dominik Koepker, they are the members of the Top 20 that will be in Mexico:
Stefanos Tsitsipas (5)
Karen Khachanov (11)
Cameron Norrie (13)
Alex de Minaur (16)
Tommy Paul (17)
José Antonio Fernández, tournament director, celebrated that “we have a very complete team for a tournament that has grown and is consolidating every year.” On the other hand, he stressed that the players who will participate have risen in recent months.
“Without a doubt these players, who have stood out and climbed positions in recent months at the top of the ATP ranking, give the tournament a great boost and shape what we consider, up to now, the best draw in the tournament. We have had great acceptance in the northern part of Mexico and also in the southern United States.”
This year there are several debutants in the ATP 250, where Tsitsipas stands out, a favorite of the Mexican fans, as well as Khachanov and Paul Norrie will seek his second title in Los Cabos, after winning the fifth edition, and de Miñaur will seek the Mexican double after lifting the title in Acapulco earlier this year against Tommy Paul.
Borna Coric boasts her three titles on the three different surfaces and as for Mexican players, the outstanding youth Rodrigo Pachecho, who was crowned in doubles at Roland Garros Jr., will receive a wildcard to play in the main draw.
The Mifel Tenis Open by Telcel Oppo 2023, the best tournament in the category in Latin America, will have a main draw of 28 players for singles and 16 pairs in doubles.
