More on the topic
At just 25 years old, the talented tennis player is getting ready to compete in this thrilling Mexican tournament for the first time in his career. He feels particularly motivated by the warm support of the local fans who have expressed their backing for him in every match.
Tsitsipás has a very clear goal.
Tsitsipas’ main objective in the Mifel Open by Telcel Oppo is clear: to lift his first trophy of the year and showcase his skill and abilities in this new competitive environment. With his talent and dedication, he hopes to seize this opportunity to achieve glory and return to the path of victory in a tournament that holds special significance for him and his fans in Mexico.
The Greek will arrive at the tournament holding a strong position as the number 5 player in the ATP world ranking. Since entering the professional world in 2016, the athlete’s talent has been a revelation that has continued to shine, earning him nine titles already.
However, his popularity extends beyond just his victories in tennis. The athlete has captivated not only with his skill on the court but also with his innovative approach on social media, where he shares his life and passions with his fans. His charismatic personality has turned him into a media icon within the ATP circuit.
He is everyone’s favorite.
So far, Tsitsipas has reached two Grand Slam finals, at the Australian Open in 2023 and at Roland Garros in 2021. However, his most significant titles to date are his two victories at the Monte Carlo Masters 1000 and the Nitto ATP Finals in 2019, achieved when he was just 21 years old.
The athlete has shown an impressive evolution in his game, excelling in both hard court and grass tournaments. In the last Wimbledon, he had an exciting five-set duel against the grass court legend, Andy Murray, achieving an epic victory. Although he bid farewell in the fourth round, this match showcased his ability to compete in the most challenging stages.
His skill and consistency have kept him firmly in the Top 5 of the ATP rankings since October 2022, and he hasn’t fallen out of the Top 10 in the world since February 2019. This privileged position is a reflection of the hard work and dedication he has invested in his career, showing that he is ready to face the best in the world.
There is no doubt that the presence of the Greek in Los Cabos will be a topic of conversation both on and off the court.
Convincing Tsitsipas to visit Mexico was not difficult.
The Los Cabos Tennis Open has been consolidating year by year, and this year it celebrates its seventh edition of the event that has seen great tennis players crowned. Geoffrey Fernández, the tournament director, shared with Tribuna de México that convincing Tsitsipas to come to the NORO was not difficult at all.
The reality is that as the years and time go by, throughout the history of the tournament, it becomes easier in the sense that more and more people are familiar with the destination. They are well aware of the company behind all of this, and it helps us a lot that the great tennis players who have already been here and experienced this help spread the word. “The background of having more than 30 years of experience in organizing tennis tournaments undoubtedly helps us to have that ease of getting these players to join us without thinking twice,” he mentioned.
