Nys and Zielinski, AMT 2024 Doubles champions


  • They beat Santiago Gonzalez and Neal Skupski in two sets.
  • They dominated the final despite Santi’s locality in Acapulco.

Acapulco, March 2, 2024.- The Monegasque Hugo Nys and the Polish Jan Zielinski were proclaimed champions of the doubles tournament of the Abierto Mexicano Telcel presented by HSBC, which took place in the hard courts of the tennis complex of the GNP Arena.

Nys and Zielinski did not give any chance to the duo formed by the Mexican Santiago Gonzalez and the British Neil Skupsky, despite the locality enjoyed by the player from Veracruz and his partner during the whole tournament, to subdue them by 6-3, 6-2 in just one hour and nine minutes of match.

As reflected in the scoreboard, the now champions clearly did things better against opponents who, except for a moment in the first set, failed to settle in the center court and ended up being clearly outclassed.

Santi, finalists for the second time in Acapulco, had arrived with many illusions to Saturday’s final, without dropping a single set throughout the tournament, however, they were powerless against Nys and Zielinski, who were a gale from start to finish.

Nys and Zielinski started with a very good rhythm, to take a 3-0 lead in the first set with a break to Gonzalez. However, the rivals reacted with the support of the crowd to equalize at three games apiece, in what was their only important moment of the match.

Again, Nys and Zielinski took control of the actions and stepped on the accelerator to win the set 6-3, being clear dominators of the match. 

In the second set, there was not the reaction that the fans expected from their favorite players. If in the first set, the game was one-sided, in the second the dominance was more overwhelming to quickly define the match with a 6-2 score, without showing a crack through which their opponents could sneak through.

“I am very happy to be in the final after nine years. I want to congratulate Jan [Zielinski] and Hugo [Nys] for their title, they played very well, they were better than us. I wish them the best of luck for the next tournaments. I thank Neal [Skuoski], I hope next year will be the good one. We will be back next year in Acapulco,” said Gonzalez at the conclusion of the game.

For Skupski it was certainly not the night he was expecting, but in general terms he acknowledged that it was a great experience for him this week in Acapulco, hoping to consolidate his on-court partnership with the Mexican in upcoming tournaments.

On the winning side, Hugo Nys was very happy for the title. “I feel very proud, we had a solid game all week,” he said. 

Meanwhile, Zielinski highlighted the importance of this fourth title together and was optimistic to face the calendar throughout the season and, especially, the next few weeks, which includes Masters in Indian Wells and Miami.
