Mexico City, May 25 – With a Uruguayan father and Spanish mother, Australian Alex De Miñaur, currently 19th in the world, has won the affection of the Mexican public with his perfect Spanish and now has the possibility this 2023 to achieve the double in the ATP tournaments held in Mexico.
At the Abierto Mexicano Telcel presented by HSBC held in Acapulco last March, de Miñaur emerged as the surprise champion and is now announced for the Mifel Tennis Open by Oppo Telcel in Los Cabos to be played from July 31 to August 5.
By attending Los Cabos, De Miñaur has the chance to realize an accomplishment that so far only American Sam Querrey has achieved in 2017: winning both Mexican tournaments in the same season. That year, Querrey registered two of the 10 titles he won in singles during his career by winning the Acapulco ATP 500 and the second edition of the Los Cabos ATP 250.
The Australian’s trajectory, a professional since 2015, has been on the rise in recent months and the Acapulco title was the boost he needed to break into the ATP Top 20. On his way to the title, Alex defeated Mexican Rodrigo Pacheco, Italian Jacopo Berrettini, Japanese Taro Daniel, Danish Holger Rune and American Tommy Paul.
At the age of 24, he is living the best moment of his career, in which he accumulates 7 ATP titles, among them the 250 of Sydney, Atlanta and Zhuhai that he added in 2019, the one of Antalya and Eastbourne in 2021 and Atlanta for 2022, added to the Open 500 of Acapulco. With this triumph in the XXX edition of the AMT, Demon, the nickname by which de Miñaur is known, joined other champions such as Thomas Muster, Juan Ignacio Chela, Gustavo Kuerten, Carlos Moyá, Rafael Nadal, David Ferrer,y Nicolás Almagro, Sam Querrey, his compatriot Nick Kyrgios or Alexander Zverev, among others.
