ATP Los Cabos 2022

ATP Los Cabos 2022

I had never been to a professional tennis match in my life. Let alone a full week worth of professional tennis matches. The first game I watched was the qualifying game to see who advanced into the ATP Los Cabos 250. The match was between Max PURCELL (AUS) and Pedja KRSTIN (SRB).

The insane speed the ball traveled with was unbelievable, as well as the different effects the ball would have based on how the player hit it. Ball boys & girls running to pick up the balls as fast as possible. All heads, including my own were swaying back and forth. The sounds surrounding me caught my attention more than once.   The silence in the crowd, the players grunting with each hit, the shoes against the concrete as the players run during plays, the ball against the impact of the racquet. Something that caught me off guard were the different languages being spoken around me, in the crowd and by the players.

Max PURCELL won the match and advanced into the tournament.

Day 2 – August 2, 2022

Game 1, Mexican Alex `HERNANDEZ faces Colombian Nicolas BARRIENTOS. Alex had the entire crowd cheering him on, chanting his name, as well as chanting “MÉXICO! MÉXICO!”. Alex won the match and became the first Mexican to win a game at the ATP Los Cabos.

 

Game 2, Kaichi UCHIDA (JPN) faces Brandon NAKASHIMA (USA) who is ranked number 6 in this tournament. American Brandon wins the match.

 

Game 3, ranked number 7 in this tournament Thanasi KOKKINAKIS (AUS) faces Fernando VERDASCO (ESP). KOKKINAKIS wins the match, which ended around 1:30 AM.

 

THE FINAL – AUGUST 6, 2022

The most waited game in the tournament. Ranked number 1 in the world Daniil MEDVEDEV (RUS) faces last year’s winner of this tournament Cameron NORRIE (GBR).

MEDVEDEV wins after winning the two first games in the match. Norrie is now qualified to be in the top 10 players in the world.

 

To conclude I would want to invite everyone who is reading this to attend to next year’s ATP event in Los Cabos! It is a great event for the entire family, they have games set up for the younger kids, multiple delicious food restaurants for every age group. It is crazy how one minute you are watching the players match on the field and the next minute they are a couple inches away from you signing autographs. It is also very cool to see the ESPN reporters Eduardo Varela, Rebeca Landa, Carolina Guillen & the ESPN booth in person.

Los Cabos, where amazing happens!!!

Los Cabos, where amazing happens!!!

Cabo San Lucas first beckoned to Hollywood’s elite in the 1970s as a luxurious destination from the day to day of show business. The town’s reputation changed as world-class resorts took up residence here, in the neighboring village of San Jose del Cabo, and along the 18-mile stretch of highway that connects the two, known as “the Corridor”.

Forty years later, this destination on the southernmost tip of Baja California is still known as an elite destination – just take a look at the designer golf courses and deluxe villas around them.

The Los Cabos International Airport is located just 8 miles away from San Jose del Cabo and 23 miles from Cabo San Lucas, the airport has around 550 weekly operations serving round 40 diferent destinations.

Where the desert meets the ocean, whitness the sunrise at the Sea of Cortes as the sunset at the Pacific ocean, days in the spa are just as coveted as evenings at a beachside watering hole.

A world-class destination well suited for everyone, Cabo San Lucas the trendy, fashion, nightlife; San Jose del Cabo the bohemian, culture and art.
