The $780,000 pot of prize money makes it the fifth-highest among the 39 ATP 250 tournaments. Enough to attract players from tennis’s top 100. 

The presence of Austria’s up and coming Dominic Thiem is causing much excitement. At number 15 in ATP rankings, he has 5 titles under his belt at only 22 years old. Another rising star is, of course last year’s winner, Bernard Tomic. Currently ranked at number 22 with three championships to his name, all won in the last year.

Other prominent players include Ivo Karlovic of Croatia at 33 in the ranking, San Querrey of USA, ranking 37, and Spaniards Fernando Verdasco located at position 51 and Tommy Robredo who sits at position 72 of the ATP.

All in all this year’s first tournament will feature 28 players in singles and 16 in doubles. The new stadium is almost ready and will seat up to 3500 spectators.

Investors aim to raise up to $4 billion to bring the complex up to ATP 500 status by 2017.  When the tournament will move to its permanent home at the Solaz Los Cabos, which will have a stadium and four other courts.

Clearly Cabo will become known as a suitable host for major tennis tournaments. Attracting professional tennis players with big prize money, a first class tennis facility and all the natural beauty and luxurious lifestyle that Cabo has to offer. 

Director of Marketing and Communication of the Mexican Tennis Open and Pegasus Group, Jose Antonio Fernandez says –  “Los Cabos has great air links to the United States and Canada, where US Open Series tournaments take place, giving players the opportunity to use Los Cabos as a tune-up event a week after playing the Masters 1000 event in Cincinnati and just before the US Open, the last Grand Slam event of the year.”
