Los Cabos, August 1st, 2022.- Passions, hobbies, goals and legacies, the media day of the Mifel Tennis Open left surprising statements from the protagonists, who highlighted their first impressions of the new Cabo Sports Complex (CSC) and how much they have enjoyed the destination of Los Cabos.
Since his time in Acapulco, British Cameron Norrie (No. 12) had commented that the Pacific Sea is his favorite and for that same reason, Los Cabos is a destination that means a lot to him, since, it was here that he won his first title in 2021.
“I love the beach, I was trying to surf today and coming back to Mexico is good, I know they love tennis. It’s a special place for me because here I won my first tournament last year, I love the playing conditions. The court is fast and it suits my game. It’s good to be back and I came early today to try and get ready to defend my title, I hope to play at the same level. This is one of my favorite parts of the year,” said Norrie.
On the other hand, the Russian Daniil Medvedev, who assured that reaching No. 1 in the ATP ranking is the highlight of his year, and also revealed the reason why he preferred to attend this week’s ATC.
“I definitely love the beaches and the weather. Its my second time in Mexico, happy to be able come back for many years, you never know. There are many tournaments on the tour, but I always want to visit new places and enjoy new countries; it’s a new city and I wanted to experience something new. I think it’s a strong tournament, especially considering there is a ATP 500 in the United States, so it’s not easy to have the best players. I am enjoying staying here but the main focus is tennis. Let’s hope everyone is ready. The new complex has everything we need, I like it, looks great, it feels like being in the desert, the stadium is very big”, said Medvedev.
Finally, another Top 10 player who attracts the most attention is the Canadian Felix Auger-Aliassime (No. 9), who decided to return to live out a new experience in Mexican soil.
“The scenery is breath taking, a beautiful location to play a tournament, I’m just happy every time I discover a new place where I haven’t played, new fans, new week and so far its been great. I like Mexico, it’s not so far from where I’m from, we’re on the same continent. There is a lot of intensity from the crowd. Hopefully it will be full house all week, there are very good players participating and it’s not going to be easy, but I feel confident. I like to play under these conditions, fast and high rebounding, they are good for my game”, said the Canadian.
The top three seeds of the tournament will be in action this Wednesday in the third day of activities of the ATP 250 tournament in Los Cabos
