Rafa has a stellar 14-1 win-loss at Acapulco. The Spaniard took his only loss at the event in his most recent match, falling in straight sets in the 2017 final to Querrey. He is playing just his second event of 2019, after his finalist showing at the Australian Open.
Our champ is looking to claim his 81st career title this week, but a first since winning the Rogers Cup in Toronto last August.
Good luck & Vamos Rafa!
