atp.JPGTickets are available on Tickemaster, or can be bought in person at the Koral concierge desk, located in the lobby of the Hampton Inn Hotel in San Jose, and the Delmar International School in Cabo. The Delmar ticket booth is open Monday to Friday, from 10:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. and 4:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m. The Koral concierge desk is open from Monday to Sunday, 9:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m.

As of now, several players have been confirmed to play in the tournament. Feliciano Lopez from Spain returns to Cabo for the second year in a row, seeking to win the title this time. He lost in the finals last year to Croatia’s Ivo Karlovic. Sam Querrey from the USA is also back again, after an impressive win in the ATP 500 in Acapulco earlier this year when he upset the number two seed, tennis star Rafael Nadal. Other players, including Borna Coric from Croatia, Karen Khachanov from Russia, Frances Tiafoe from the United States and Thanasi Kokkinakis from Austraila, have also been confirmed to play.  

Last year all the matches took place at night because the heat of summer is not compatible with tennis. So why are we doing this again in the summer? Because organizers for the Cabo segment of the tours wre late to the party and this date was the only one left. more information about the players and the tournament in upcoming issues of the Gringo Gazette.
