After a few weeks off the tour, Rafael Nadal returns to action at the Mexican Open. The Spaniard is a two-time winner of the tournament but hasn’t won the event since 2013.
Nadal always enjoys playing in Acapulco and this year is no different.
“[I speak the] same language. Nice people, always very friendly people. Every time that I am here I feel a little bit like [I am at] home,” Nadal said.
“I enjoy being around here. I know the tournament, I know the people who organise the tournament and the crowd always has been amazing with me. So I’m very excited to be back here in Mexico.
“Enjoying every single moment and just hoping to be ready for the action. I think everything is easy, everything is very close in front of the sea, inside the resort, good atmosphere, good tournament organisation.
“The feeling is you are not in a typical tennis tournament. You are playing a tournament but in a holiday atmosphere. That really makes us feel great here.”
