Abierto Mexicano History and Previous Winners


The Mexican Open held its inaugural edition 30 years ago in 1993. Through the 30 years of its existence, the tournament has undergone many changes. In 2001, the event became a part of the WTA Tour as well. The event was part of both tours until 2020 when the WTA event was canceled. Another change that was introduced was the court surface. For the first 20 years, the Mexican Open was played on red clay courts and was part of the Golden Swing of events in Latin America but following the 2013 edition, the court was changed to a hard court. The venues have also seen changes, going from the Club Aleman in Mexico City to the Fairmont Acapulco Princess for 11 years, only to change once again in 2022 to the Arena GNP Seguros.
