Kevin Anderson

The South African former world number five has dropped out from the tournament. This was after 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. Previously, Anderson reached the finals of the Acapulco tournament twice.

Matteo Berrettini

The 23-year-old Italian tennis star announced that he is skipping the Acapulco event. His abdominal injury forced him to miss the ATP Cup and Rio Open. Currently, Berrettini ranks eighth in the world. 

Lucas Pouille

A recurring elbow injury forced this French netter to withdraw from the Acapulco tournament. Aside from the Mexican Open, the 25-year-old also pulled out of the ATP Cup and Adelaide International. In addition, he missed out on Australian Open, Open Sud de France and the ABN AMRO World Tennis Tournament. Unfortunately, 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. Challenging the Spaniard are a talented mix of players. This will include Alexander Zverev, Stan Wawrinka and defending champion Nick Kyrgios. In the end, Nadal will emerge victorious in the Mexican Open.
