Del Potro tops Anderson for his biggest title since — ATP Acapulco

Del Potro continues Anderson dominance to win Acapulco title

He was runner-up at the 2017 US Open.

"I beat three top 10 guys in the same tournament, which is very important for myself". This is the Argentine's 21st title on the ATP World Tour.

The 29-year-old was in fine form as he grasped his first ATP tour title since Basel in 2013. "In the heat of the battle, I thought it was a really tough match".

When Anderson gets it right with his booming serve he can be hard to break down but 29-year-old Del Potro was able to feed on the South African's weaker second serve to get the crucial breaks.

Del Potro served masterfully Saturday, blasting 12 aces and winning 78 percent of his first serve and 64 percent of his second serve points in the one hour, 40 minute match.

"I just really like it here".

Seeking back-to-back titles after taking out the New York Open a fortnight ago, fifth seed Anderson improved to 11-2 for the season after outlasting the American.

But when he announced that Brad Parscale would be his campaign chief, it was the most concrete announcement yet. The president's son, Eric Trump, told the media that Parscale's talent "was pivotal to our success in 2016".

Earlier in the hard-court event, Lesia Tsurenko defended her women's title with a 5-7, 7-6 (7-2), 6-2 victory over Stefanie Voegele.

Seeded seventh, she was three points from losing the match in the second set in the match that took 2 hours, 45 minutes.

The 28-year-old Tsurenko, from the Ukraine, won her fourth WTA Tour title and first since her victory last year at Princess Mundo Imperial.

"I think all the conditions for the tournament are just great and I know that all the players enjoy to play here", the Ukrainian Tsurenko said.

Top seed Albert Ramos-Vinolas, however, lost 6-7 (6-8) 6-4 7-6 (7-3) against Nicolas Jarry.

South Africa's Anderson moved one step closer to capturing his second consecutive title with his win over American qualifier Donaldson.

"He started very well and I had to wait a bit for his serve to calm down", Fognini said. "I'm so glad to win my 21st title playing in Acapulco". "I felt I played some of my best tennis down on those break points". After the jury found the organising body was largely liable for Bouchard's fall, which left her with a concussion, the two parties reached an undisclosed financial settlement. Anderson was in a fine form before the final, winning the title in NY before heading to Acapulco but he didn't stand a chance today against such a strong rival who did just about everything right on the court.
