Players warned of Acapulco safety issues

The joint ATP/WTA Tour event in Acapulco is a popular one – in part due to the beachy off-court attractions.

But the WTA has warned its players of “recent high violent crime rates” in sections of the city. It has “strongly recommended” caution and to remain on site or hotel property while at the tournament.


It also advises players to schedule their airport arrivals/departures during daylight hours, if possible, and to only use tournament transportation.

Among those entered are Sloane Stephens, Donna Vekic and Danielle Collins – along with Rafael Nadal, Alexander Zverev on the men’s side.
