The Los Cabos Open is an ATP 250 hard-court competition that takes place in Mexico. Cabo Sports Complex hosts the tournament each season, which generally took place in July or August, but it was moved to February in 2024, creating a short Mexican swing along with the Mexican Open in Acapulco.

Sometimes, the event is called the Mifel Tennis Open by Telcel Oppo due to sponsorship reasons. The Los Cabos Open is one of the more modern ATP events. It was launched in 2016 and has become a popular tournament on the ATP Tour.

In the 2023 edition, the Cabo Sports Complex saw around 30,000 fans attend the event. As an ATP 250 competition, the Los Cabos Open offers 250 ranking points to the champion and overall, nearly $1 million in prize money.

Also, the competition hosts a 32-player singles competition, while a 16-pair doubles draw takes place. Due to its increasing appeal and the quality of facilities at the Cabo Sports Complex, many high-profile players compete at the Los Cabos Open.

In 2016, Croatian Ivo Karlovic won the first-ever edition of the Mexican-based tournament. He defeated Feliciano Lopez in straight sets in the final. Since Karlovic’s maiden win at the Los Cabos Open, other well-known ATP stars have won the singles event.

For instance, former world number one Daniil Medvedev lifted the title in 2022 after he beat Cameron Norrie. In 2023, another former top-five player, Stefanos Tsitsipas, won the Los Cabos Open after he defeated Alex de Minaur 6-3, 6-4.

In addition, some famous men’s players have won the doubles competition since 2016. Most notably, former US player John Isner won the doubles event alongside his Mexican playing partner Hans Hach Verdugo.
