Jose Antonio Fernández, Los Cabos Open's Tournament Director and a Mextenis official, was very satisfied with the numbers of the Greatest Match that was held on November 23 between Roger Federer and Alexander Zverev in Mexico City.
"The idea is to continue it, it's something we will do after these results, thinking about Federer is our plan but the crowd loves tennis in general. We would like to have players like (Rafael) Nadal, (Novak) Djokovic, (Andy) Murray."
Fernandez also said Federer left Mexico very happy, but there is no comeback set. He admitted that seeing the Basel native competing in Acapulco or Los Cabos events is unlikely. "We have a great relationship with him and he admitted it was a mistake not to comeback for years.
It was one of his best nights in life, which makes things easier for us to make him (come) back. Seven million people watched the event, which is the same rating as the French Open final between Rafael Nadal and Dominic Thiem.
"It was a success in all aspects." Federer and Zverev had a busy week as they traveled to six different Latin American countries. They were unable to play in Bogota, Colombia because of the imposition of a curfew.
But fans who bought tickets have been reassured that either an alternative match will be played in 2020, or their ticket money will be reimbursed entirely. Reportedly, Federer will reimburse the fans personally in case a new date for the match is not able to be set.
