Acapulco, Mexico - February 27, 2024 - Greek tennis star Stefanos Tsitsipas is taking his commitment to the local community a step further at this week's Acapulco Open.

Motivated by the recent devastation caused by Hurricane Otis, Tsitsipas has pledged to donate $1,000 for every ace he hits throughout the tournament. The funds will be directed towards the community's relief efforts, aiding those affected by the hurricane.

Hurricane Otis struck the Acapulco region earlier this month, causing significant damage to infrastructure and displacing residents. Tsitsipas, who has been a regular competitor at the Acapulco Open, has witnessed firsthand the beauty and warmth of the local community.

"I've always enjoyed coming to Acapulco and playing in front of the passionate fans here," Tsitsipas said. "The recent hurricane was a devastating event, and I wanted to find a way to support the community during this challenging time."

Tournament organizers and fans have praised Tsitsipas' initiative. His generosity is a powerful example of how athletes can use their platform to make a positive impact.

The Acapulco Open officially kicks off today. Tsitsipas will be looking to add to his impressive record in the tournament, having won the championship title in 2021 and 2022. As he competes for another title, his powerful serves will now carry the added weight of supporting the Acapulco community's recovery.
