Welcome to the great fiesta of junior tennis in Mexico City, the Abierto Juvenil Mexicano!
This year we celebrate the 40th anniversary of our tournament and are very proud that it has grown to become one of the nine most important junior tournaments in the world.
With maturity comes responsibility, and we are committed to raising the level of social consciousness in our country and throughout the world. This edition we will donate the entire box office to different foundations and organize conferences on achieving positive social change through sports.
For our anniversary, we have refurbished our Stadium, built in 1927 and a witness of sports history and some of the great legends of tennis like Rod Laver, Roger Federer and our very own Rafael Osuna. We are very aware that the junior players participating in our tournament are also on their way to greatness and we share with their parents and coaches their high expectations. You are our inspiration!
Throughout these four decades, the support of the ITF, the Mexican Tennis Federation and the National Sports Commision has been instrumental. We will always be grateful to them and promise to continue striving to better the tournament with each edition.
On behalf of the hard-working and professional team that I lead, we wish our junior players the best of results, and also the best of memories of your junior stage in our country, city and tournament.
Bienvenidos, mi casa es su casa!
