Rafa Nadal will play the Mexican Tennis Open

Recovered from injuries, Nadal won the 250 in Melbourne this month and this Sunday he made his debut at the Australian Open, the first Grand Slam of the year, with a 6-1, 6-4, 6-2 victory against the American Marcos Girón.

In Acapulco, the ATP 500 tournament, Nadal reigned in 2005, 2013 and 2020 and reached the final in 2017, which he lost to the American Sam Querrey.

Now the one from Manacor will try to win his fourth crown to reach his compatriot David Ferrer and the Austrian Thomas Muster as the most winners of the contest, with four titles.

Acapulco, which takes place on a fast track, will open a new stadium, near the golf course of the Hotel Princess Mundo Imperial, a facility that will be the largest on the ATP circuit in Latin America.

The presence of Nadal will increase the interest of Mexican fans because he is one of the most beloved players in the history of the tournament, who at 35 years old will arrive as the main Hispanic card against four of the main exponents of the new generation of tennis.
