Mexican Open Overview
The event in Acapulco is the younger brother of the Dubai Duty Free Tennis Championships held in the same time. The event features those who have no desire to struggle against the top stars, which make the draw in Acapulco compact and competitive. However, this situation differs from the previous years. Many strong players have arrived to compete on the blue courts of Mexico.
Weather and Courts
Climate in Acapulco is drier and hotter that in Dubai, the temperature reaches 30 °C above zero. The speed of the wind is about 10-15 kmph. The surface is the most common hard courts. Due to the high temperature, the bounce of the ball should be low.
Last year Dominic Thiem triumphed in Mexico with no top players in draw. This year the story is different. Until 2014 the tournament was played on clay and the Spanish players were in most comfortable position. Now the history changes.
Unlike the event in Dubai, the favorites in Acapulco are less obvious. Even with Novak Djokovic participating. The Serb hasn’t unleashed his potential yet and it would be wrong to consider him as the unique favorite. One would say that Novak is obliged to win, but in practice tennis isn’t the number one priority for Djokovic now. Rafael Nadal has also arrived in Mexico and will struggle for the title. However, the Spanish didn’t expect to meet Novak in this part of the world and it will produce much pressure for Nadal. Nevertheless, the hard-working Nadal has his chances and shouldn’t miss them.
We also want to single out Milos Raonic and Marin Cilic. The both are in very solid form. Juan Martin Del Potro will make the competition tougher. Many US players with John Isner in the lead will appear on court. Dominic Thiem has maintained momentum and will be hard to stop despite the surface change.
So as you see the draw in Acapulco is very close. Generally, we expect to watch the second most interesting events after the Australian Open so far. Stay tuned!

From the moment he appeared on courts, Kei Nishikori has always been one of 5 or 6 super talented promising players.

IMHO Federer will win like 6:2 6:4 or so.

Probably. But Johnson's service is good, so Roger will rarely make more than one break in a set.
