|
  • The sixth edition of the Abierto de Tenis Mifel will take place from August 1st – 6th in Los Cabos, BCS.
  • Norrie, currently number 12 in the world, the reigning champion; Auger-Aliassime is the number 9 in the world.
  • Tickets will go on sale on April 4th.

The Abierto de Tenis Mifel confirmed that the 6th edition of the Tournament, which will be held from August 1st – 6th, will feature two star players, the Canadian Felix Auger-Aliassime, current number 9 in the world, and the British Cameron Norrie, champion in 2021 and will seek to defend his title.

“Today, we are very proud to announce the presence of Felix, who, with only 21 years old, is the number 9 in the world. For the first time, we will have a Top 10 in Los Cabos. We are extremely excited to return with an audience and media”, said José Antonio Fernández, Director of the tournament.

Auger-Aliassime (No. 9), who won his first title in the ATP 500 in Rotterdam against Stefanos Tsitsipas, is one of the younger players that has grown in recent years. Since April 2021, he has Toni Nadal as support and as part of his technical team.

Norrie, player No. 1 of the United Kingdom, and No. 12 in the world, has been climbing in the ATP ranking thanks to his great tennis. He won his first title in Los Cabos in 2021, and later lifted the Indian Wells Masters 1000 trophy, this being his most important accomplishment so far. This season, he has already won a title in the Delray Beach tournament

The ATP 250 Los Cabos will have a singles main draw with only 28 players and 16 players in the doubles draw. The prize money is $ 873,000.

The tournament, one of the most important in its category, was inaugurated in 2016, and had the Croatian Ivo Karlovic as the first champion. Sam Querrey (2017), Fabio Fognini (2018) and Diego Schwartzman (2019) have also been crowned in the singles category, while Mexican stars, such as Miguel Angel Reyes Varela in 2018 and Hans Hach Verdugo in 2021, won the doubles category.

This year, the Abierto de Tenis Mifel will celebrate its second edition at the Cabo Sports Complex, a multifunctional venue to host sporting and entertainment events in an open space just 250 metres from the host hotel, Solaz Los Cabos.

The site has an area of about 10,000 m2 where we will enjoy entertainment, cultural events and concerts.

The CSC, premiered in 2021, is located on an area of more than 4 hectares, and has a stadium with a capacity for 3,500 fans, a Grandstand for more than 1,000 people and five courts that can be adapted to receive up to 800 spectators. There’s also a special zone for players.

For the second consecutive edition, and due to the health contingency, the Abierto de Tenis Mifel will be held under the ATC Safety Program protocols, a plan created by the Tournament, with the ATP, and local authorities.

“The tournament will be held with the same security protocols that are being met in Acapulco, our goal is to ensure the safety of players, attendees and organizers,” added Fernández. Tickets for the 6th edition will go on sale starting April 4th
