Mexico’s Alfredo Avila was the victor on home soil at the NextCloud Tekae TIPSSA Open, claiming his forth victory of the campaign.

Avila already had three wins to his name in the 2022-2023 season prior to this event, and he came to Mexico City as the tournament’s top seed.

After receiving a bye through the opening round of action, the Mexican defeated Paraguayan No.1 Francesco Marcantonio in straight games to get his week underway. Another straight games wins came in the quarter finals, as he cruised past compatriot Carlos Vargas.

His toughest test came in the last four of the competition, against the unseeded Sebastian Salazar. After winning the opening two games comfortably, he saw Salazar win the third to close the gap in the match. However, Avila was able to regroup to win the fourth to the loss of just three points, moving through to another final.

The final saw the tournament’s top seed on another unseeded Mexican, in Jorge Gomez. However, there would be no surprises from Gomez, as Avila put in a confident performance to win in straight games, and to claim his fourth title of the season.

The third tournament to get underway on Wednesday will be the NextCloud Tekae TIPSSA Open, which takes place in Mexico City.

Squash Delta, in the Piedad Narvarte region of the Mexican capital, will play host to the Challenger 5 level men’s competition. 24 players from five nations will compete, with the majority of the field playing on home soil.

Alfredo Avila will be the top seed, and the favourite for the title. The World No.69 already has three titles to his name this season. He has already achieved wins at the Sport Central Open, HSC International Squash Open and the Christianson Classic, and will be looking to add a fourth win this week.

Compatriot Alejandro Reyes will be his nearest challenger, with Leo Vargas, Miled Zarazua, Allan Nunez and Carlos Vargas also among the top eight seeds. Colombia’s Edgar Ramirez Bautista and Guatemalan Luis Quisquinay will be the only two non-Mexicans to be seeded this week.

Only three others featuring this week will not hail from the host nation. Paraguayan No.1 Francesco Marcantonio, Germany’s Jan Wipperfurth and a second Colombian, in Felipe Tovar, will join the majority-Mexican field.

There will be four wildcards for the tournament this week, with two of those being juniors. Wally De Los Santos will be featuring for only the second time on Tour, while Carlos Zendejas will make his Tour debut. Pablo Hernandez and Gerardo Ramos will be the other wildcards for the event.
