Men’s Singles

In the 2022 men’s singles event, Daniil Medvedev was seeded number 1 with Alexander Zverev seeded number 2.

In a rematch of the 2022 Australian Open final, Daniil Medvedev lost to Rafael Nadal in the semifinals while Alexander Zverev was kicked out of the tournament following an incident in a doubles match where Zverev aggressively struck the umpire’s chair four times with his racket.

The 2022 Acapulco singles final was between Rafael Nadal and Cameron Norrie with Nadal winning in straight sets 6-4, 6-4 (see match highlights below)

By winning his fourth Mexican Open title, Nadal now shares the record for most titles in Acapulco with David Ferrer and Thomas Muster.
