I write to you hoping that you are well and in good health during these complicated times.
With deep sadness. I want to inform you that due to the active outbreak of COVlD-19, the Abierto de Tenis Mifel presentado por Cinemex 2020 has been suspended. Unfortunately, the current situation around the world, has forced us to adjourn, in order to preserve the integrity and safety of the fans, the players, and the staff who collaborates in our event.
Just brieﬂy, after weeks of thorough analysis made in close collaboration with Tour members, the ATP extended the suspension of the ATP Tour through to July 31. which means that the ATP events in Hamburg, Bastad. Newport, Los Cabos, Gstaad, Umag, Atlanta, Bastad and Kitzbühel will not take place as scheduled. We support the decision taken by the ATP, for the people’s health is and will always be our priority.
As wise men say, “There is no reason to look back when you have so much to look forward to”. Starting today, we have a new motivation, a new challenge for 2021, where we’ll ﬁnd ourselves celebrating together the 5th edition of the Abierto de Tenis Mifel presentado por Cinemex in our new home.
After only 4 years of operation, the results have been outstanding. We have all witnessed the growth of the tournament in one of Mexico’s most beautiful destinations; Los Cabos, The increase in attendance. the economic impact. the reach and positioning of the event conﬁrms the public’s fondness, who values Mextenis’ commitment in hosting high-quality sporting events.
We are certain that the new tournament site, will make the Abierto de Tenis Mifel presentado por Cinemex, one of the best tournaments on the ATP Tour. The design and unique landscape will integrate nature with sport, resulting in a world class event.
Without a doubt, we will miss not being able to host the tournament, not being able to enjoy great tennis or the magniﬁcent gastronomy at the venue, but above all, we will miss you; who year after year, grant us with your presence making this event possible.
Be certain that, for our part, we will be working with thoroughly on making next year an unforgettable event for us all.
Thank you for your time and consideration.
