Tommy Paul seeks the title anda win mexican fans


  • The American is in the final of the XXX edition of the tournament, but confesses he doesn’t feel favorite.

Acapulco, March 4th.- After playing the longest match in the Open history , the Abierto Mexicano Telcel presented by HSBC.

Tommy Paul, who defeated his friend and compatriot Taylor Fritz in 3 hrs 25 minutes, said he feels ready for the final, although he doesn’t believe he has won over Mexican hearts yet.

“I feel great, I couldn’t feel any better, I feel perfect. The match was tough, the muscle cramps started at the beginning of the third set, I think people didn’t like me very much, I don’t know why? that wasn’t much fun, I was cramping and people were yelling at me.”

“I don’t know, it’s weird. I think people didn’t like it or understand. You definitely get stopped at the hotel a lot and it’s good to see how excited people are for all the players. I’d rather have a full stadium supporting someone else than have 200 supporting me. It was a crazy match, but I go into every match feeling like I can win, I’m just going to recover today and rest,” he said at a press conference after his win.

Tommy Paul, 25, will enter the Top 20 of the ATP rankings as of next Monday thanks to playing his first final of a 500-category tournament, the second of his career after conquering Stockholm in 2021.
