What Happened at the 2020 Mexican Open?
Rafael Nadal won the men’s singles title in 2020 while the women’s singles title was won by Britain’s Heather Watson.
Nadal went through the competition without losing a set, before he defeated Taylor Fritz 6-3, 6-2 in the final. He had earlier usurped Grigor Dimitrov by the same scoreline. Fritz surprised the fifth seeded John Isner in the semifinal.
The women’s draw saw all the top five seeds crash out in the first round of the tournament, while the eighth seeded Nao Hibino went out in the second round.
It was the seventh seeded Watson who took advantage of this by Canadian youngster Leylah Fernandez in the final 6-4, 6-7, 6-1 to lift the trophy.
This was after the men’s singles title was won by Nick Kyrgios, who defeated Alexander Zverev in the final in straight sets in 2019. Wang Yafan won the women’s singles title that year.
Kyrgios had gone into the tournament as an unseeded player, and was down three match-points in his second round match against Rafael Nadal but made it through and won the tournament. It was also in that match that the issues between Kyrgios and Nadal came to the fore yet again.
Yafan of China won her first WTA title after two-time defending champion Lesia Tsurenko opted out of the tournament. Yafan stunned Sofia Kenin in the final, coming back from a set deficit to win the title-decider. The other seeded player to make the semifinal, Kenin aside, was Donna Vekic, who went down to Yafan in three sets.
In the 2018 edition of the Acapulco Open, the women’s half of the tournament was won by the Ukranian Lesia Tsurenko, who defeated Stefanie Vogele in the final in straight sets. It was an interesting run for Tsurenko, who started the competition as the defending champion and successfully defended her title.
But more so than Tsurenko, it was Vogele who had a great run. Even though she had to settle for the runner-up trophy, she defeated many rising and prominent players like Tatjana Maria, Sloane Stephens, and Maria Sakkari on her way to the final.
The likes of Daria Gavrilova and Kristina Mladenovic also started in the competition but the best they could do was reach the penultimate rounds.
In the men’s half, it was the Argentinean Juan Martin Del Potro who sailed to the victory after defeating Kevin Anderson in the final in straight sets. He was the third top 10 player had Del Potro had dispatched that week, with the other two being Dominic Thiem and Alexander Zverev.
The win here helped him gain the much-needed momentum that eventually led him to win the Indian Masters. Rafael Nadal was also supposed to start as the top seed and the favourite, but he withdrew from the competition right before the start.
This time around though, the Spaniard’s fit and raring to go and it would be interesting to watch the Nadal live streaming of this tournament going into the 2019 season.
