Quarterfinals are defined in the doubles quarterfinals of the Abierto Mexicano Telcel presented by HSBC


  • Mexican duo Emiliano Aguilera and Manuel Sanchez leave the tournament
  • Only Santiago Gonzalez in the next stage in Acapulco

Acapulco, February 28th, 2024.- This Wednesday the quarterfinals of the doubles tournament of the Abierto Mexicano Telcel presented by HSBC were defined, after concluding the first round at the tennis complex Arena GNP Seguros.

The duos formed by Romain Arneodo and Sam Weissborn, Alexander Erler and Lucas Miedler, and Gonzalo Escobar and Aleksandr Nedovyesov booked the last tickets to the second round of the Acapulco tournament, which distributes a purse of 2.3 million dollars.

In the first match of the day, the Monegasque Romain Arneodo and the Austrian Sam Weissborn had no problems to dispose in straight sets of 7-6(4) and 6-0 of the British Daniel Evans and Henry Patten, who put up resistance in the first set, forcing a tie break, but were deflated in the second, where they were practically erased from the court, in an hour and 23 minutes of match.

In the second round on court one, the Austrian forcefulness of Alexander Erler and Lucas Miedler was stronger than the Portuguese flavor of Nuno Borges and Francisco Cabral, to defeat them in two sets by 7-6(9) and 7-6(6).

Borges and Cabral certainly deserved better luck. They did not lower their arms at any moment, even showing a very good game, but the Austrian duo was highly efficient to resolve both sets in tiebreak in their favor, in a duel that lasted a little more than two hours.

Mexicans Emiliano Aguilera and Manuel Sanchez closed the day on court 1, falling by double 4-6 to the finalists of the Los Cabos Open, Ecuadorian Gonzalo Escobar and Kazakh Aleksandr Nedovyesov, in just an hour and 17 minutes of match time.

Despite the defeat, the Mexican couple was pleased with their experience in the Acapulco tournament, which they entered as lucky losers, especially because it was the first time they played together and they never gave up, despite the quality of their opponents.

“It was a very nice match. It was the first time we played together. We understood each other well. Manuel, who has a lot of experience, helped me a lot and that gave me great confidence,” expressed Aguilera. For Manuel Sanchez it was a nice experience to play again in Acapulco and he was left with a good taste in his mouth playing against the finalists of Los Cabos.

The quarterfinal matches were as follows: Santiago Gonzalez-Neal Skupski vs Evans-Patten; Sadio Doumbia-Fabien Reboul vs Escobar-Nedovyesov; Julian Cash-Robert Galloway vs Harri Heliovaara-John Peers, and Erler-Miedler vs Hugo Nys-Jan Zielinski.
