Nick Kyrgios will begin his title defence on Tuesday at the Mexican Open 2020 aiming to win second consecutive time in Acapulco. He will be looking to become the fourth person at the tournament after Thomas Muster, Nicolás Almagro and David Ferrer to have successfully defended the title.
Nick will begin his campaign against the 2019 Next Gen ATP Finals participant Ugo Humbert in what will be the first encounter between the two in their career. The 23rd ranked Australian has had a good run at the tournament last year. On his way to the title victory, Kyrgios went on to defeat top seed Rafael Nadal, Stan Wawrinka, John Isner and Alexander Zverev.
He would be looking to emulate his performance from the last season and continue his good form at the tournament. In the year 2020, Kyrgios helped his team to reach the semifinals of the ATP Cup 2020 and had also reached the pre-quarters at the 2020 Australian Open. Given his form this year, the 24-year old could have an easy first-round match against the French player.
