The WTA 1000 Guadalajara Open, known as the Guadalajara Open Akron, is ready for its second edition and promises to be an exceptional event in the world of women’s tennis. With the participation of seven of the 10 best players in the world and other notable figures, this tournament is a unique opportunity for tennis fans. Here are four reasons not to miss this exciting event, whether attending in person or following from home.
1. Unique in Latin America: The WTA 1000 Guadalajara Open is an exceptional tournament in Latin America. Although Mexico hosts other notable tennis competitions such as the Acapulco Open or the Los Cabos Open, the Guadalajara Open Akron stands out for being a level 1000 event, one of only ten in the world. This makes it the only tournament of this category in Mexico and Latin America. The other nine in this category take place in different locations around the world, including Dubai, Miami, Indian Wells, Madrid, Rome, Cincinnati, Beijing and Toronto.
According to Gustavo Santoscoy, director of the GDL Open Akron, this event is more than a local show, it is an experience that transcends borders and that all tennis lovers should enjoy.
2. The Best Players in the World: The main attraction of the Guadalajara Open 2023 is the presence of the best players in the world. Gustavo Santoscoy shared that seven of the 10 best tennis players in the world ranking will be competing in the tournament. This includes Iga Swiatek, current world number 1; Jessica Pegula, current champion in Guadalajara; Coco Gauff, US Open finalist; and many other stars such as Elena Rybakina, Ons Jabeur, Caroline García, Karolina Pliskova, Jelena Ostapenko, Victoria Azarenka, Belinda Bencic, Madison Keys, Petra Kvitova and Sloane Stephens. The opportunity to see these outstanding tennis players in action is reason enough to tune in or attend the tournament.

3. Mexican Talent on the World Stage: The Guadalajara Open 2023 will also be a platform for Mexican talent in women’s tennis. Players like Renata Zarazúa, Lya Fernández and María Fernanda Navarro will participate in the previous rounds of the championship with the aim of earning a place in the main draw. These tennis players will have the opportunity to face high-level rivals such as Genie Bouchard, Dayana Yastremska, Taylor Townsend, Emiliana Arango and Kristina Mladenovic. The tennis open represents an invaluable opportunity for Mexican tennis players to earn points and advance in the ranking, getting closer to the coveted top 100.

4. The Excitement of María Sakkari: The Greek María Sakkari, who won the affection of the public in Guadalajara two years ago during the WTA Finals, returns in search of revenge. Although she is not the statistical favorite, her charisma and connection with the Mexican public make her a beloved figure. Gustavo Santoscoy highlighted the impressive way in which María Sakkari conquers the local audience. The Guadalajara Open Akron is an opportunity to see this talented Greek tennis player and other international stars in action.
This championship will take place from September 17 to 23, with the previous rounds on the 15th and 16th. Although there are few tickets available to attend in person, the television broadcast will be carried out by ESPN and Star+ so that fans can enjoy the tournament from home.
