Carlos Alcaraz is a hot name in the tennis market, and he's booked his first off-season exhibition to be played in Mexico.
Carlos Alcaraz hasn't played since the US Open loss to Daniil Medvedev but will make a return in Beijing later this week at the ATP 500 tournament there. The Spaniard hopes to finish the year on a high note, but he won't play at the Davis Cup Finals as Spain crashed out not too long ago.
The Spaniard's absence directly contributed to that, but even so, he'll be in action in November. Besides the ATP Finals, Alcaraz will also play an exhibition match in Mexico as part of an exhibition event that will also feature a WTA match.
The Spaniard is set to play Tommy Paul in Mexico City on November 29th in the same arena where Rafael Nadal took on Casper Ruud a year earlier. Alcaraz and Paul have played some amazing matches in the past, and they hope to put on a show for the spectators once more.
A huge attendance is expected due to the popularity of Alcaraz in Latin America, with the Arena capable of hosting plenty of people as well. Besides that match between Alcaraz and Paul, we will also see a WTA match.
Honorary Mexican Maria Sakkari will hope to give the crowd some highlights against a legend of the sport, Caroline Wozniacki. It's an exciting matchup and will mark the return of Wozniacki to Mexico as a player, while Sakkari is basically a native player at this point.
She just won her biggest trophy in the country, so this should be a cakewalk for her. It's expected that this will be the first of a series of exhibitions Alcaraz will play, with some more possibly coming a few weeks after this one.
