Before the tournament
The South African former world number five has dropped out from the tournament following a surprise loss to Jason Jung in the first round of the New York Open. There are no reports on why Anderson, now ranked 121st in the world, withdrew from the tournament. Before his sudden pullout, he has reached the finals of the Acapulco tournament twice.
The 23-year-old Italian tennis star announced that he is skipping the Acapulco event as he is recovering from an abdominal injury that forced him to miss the ATP Cup and Rio Open. He is currently ranked eighth in the world and it could have been his first Mexican Open had he joined the tournament.
The French netter withdrew from the Acapulco tournament due to a recurring elbow injury. Aside from withdrawing from the Mexican Open, the 25-year-old also pulled out of the ATP Cup, Adelaide International, Australian Open, Open Sud de France and the ABN AMRO World Tennis Tournament. The five-time ATP Tour champion has dropped to 62nd in the world due to these pullouts.
2020 Mexican Open Pick
Online sportsbook expects Nadal to run riot in the Acapulco event and gain his redemption after getting ousted in the second round last year. The Spaniard will be opposed by a talented mix of players led by Alexander Zverev, Stan Wawrinka and defending champion Nick Kyrgios but in the end, Nadal will emerge victorious in the Mexican Open.
