Acapulco ATP tennis


This is my first visit to the wonderfully well organized and thoroughly enjoyable Acapulco Tennis Tournament. I give great credit to Raul Zurutuza for pulling it altogether: no mean feat (as anyone with any experience of organizing a tournament will understand).

The venue at Fairmont Princess sitting on the shores of the glittering blue waters of the Pacific Ocean is enticing. The weather enviable, sunny without a raindrop in sight!

The new hard courts provide a surface with a true bounce! Why would anyone want to play on clay? These new courts are equal to any world class tennis centre.

This tournament has been a  tennis feast. Andy Murray fighting for his life against the upcoming Dimitrov who is set to be in the top 10 soon and a contender for the coveted number one spot. This young man is a breath of fresh air with precocious talent but a most amiable disposition. As long as he remains injury free I see him as leader of the new tennis guard and may even exceed Roger Federer as a tennis legend.

Tonight he plays in the Final and I predict he will win his second title here in sunny Acapulco, but he has won something more here : the affection of the warm hearted Mexican people.

Go Dimitrov all the way to number 1!
