The Mexican Open will celebrate its 25th anniversary with a present in advance. And that’s because yesterday it was announced that, for the second time ever, the Mexican Open was chosen as the Best ATP World Tour 500 Tournament of the year.
In 2007, the ATP World Tour recognized Mexico with the best tournament award in the ATP International Series Gold category. The open celebrated its fourteenth edition and its seventh year in Acapulco; could the number 7 be the charm?
The remarkable thing about this distinction is that the players themselves vote for the prize, those that experience the day to day of the competition. This increases the value of the award and if anything, it brings exposure to the Open. In addition to the participants’ high level quality, it is that feeling of welcome that matters.
