Mexico City. – Four months after the start of its fourth edition, the Abierto de Tenis Mifel presentado por Cinemex released a few details of what it will be present as one of the most important tournaments on the ATP calendar during the summer.
Starting with the confirmation of the defending champion, Italian Fabio Fognini, more names have been revealed as part of the list of players who will accompany the world No. 18 in the ATP 250 that is played in Los Cabos, BCS.
Playing for the first time in Los Cabos will be Argentine Diego Schwartzman, currently ranked #24 in the world ranking and holder of two ATP world tour titles (Istanbul 2016 and Rio de Janeiro 2018). So far this season, “El Peque (The Shorty)” reached the semifinals in Sydney and the final in Buenos Aires.
Additionally, Bulgarian Grigor Dimitrov, 27 years old and #29 in the world rankings will also be coming. The Haskovo born has 8 titles to his name, including Abierto Mexicano de Tenis (2014) along with the Cincinnati Masters 1000 and the 2017 Nitto ATP Finals in London.
Accompanying these players will also be Spaniard Feliciano López, Los Cabos 2016 finalist, who will participate for the fourth time in Los Cabos. At 37 years old, López is currently in his 17th consecutive season in the Top 100. After his last participation in the Australian Open, he extended his record of playing in a total of 68 Grand Slams in a row.
“The prestige and good comments that the Abierto Los Cabos has received from the players themselves have favored us so that the players will look for us and consider us in their calendars,” said José Antonio Fernández, tournament director.” This situation, in addition to positioning the event within the world tour, earned us recognition as the third best ATP 250 tournament in 2018; unprecedented considering the youth of the ATC.”
While presenting a few results from the 2018 edition, Fernandez pointed out that the goals for this year are to reach an attendance of 25,000 spectators in the complex located in Delmar International School, as well as an economic income of more than 100 million pesos in Los Cabos.
“The three previous editions show a favorable trend, and this has been possible thanks to the image that the tournament has achieved and projected not only nationally, but internationally,” said the director.
“In 2018 we reached an audience of 2.7 million viewers, 25 hours of broadcast on ESPN, 407 hours worldwide, and the presence in 63 different markets. Together, these numbers give us the confidence to predict good numbers in 2019”.
The tournament organization informed that starting this year, the ATC headquarters will be at Solaz A Luxury Collection Resort.
