It was a simple match for the winners of the Cordoba Open and the Argentine Open of this year, and today, they achieved victory in just 43 minutes. Their original rivals would be the American Tommy Paul and the British Cameron Norrie, but they withdrew themselves from the doubles category since they advanced to the quarterfinals in the singles draw. After the match, the Mexican highlighted positive comments from his fellow players and about the new Arena GNP Seguros.
“I think I’ve played every year since the tournament started in Acapulco and this new venue is amazing, and I’ not the only one saying this. All the players come into the stadium and say, ‘Wow, this is a first world stadium’. I think Acapulco deserves to keep growing. Hopefully in the future it can be a Masters 1000 because it has everything for that.
” I am very happy to get to the next round. It was a last minute change, we had to play against Cameron Norrie and well, that was better for us, but the first round is never easy. Now we are in the quarterfinals and we’re happy, we’re dreaming of making progress here in Acapulco.”
