Rafael Nadal leads a strong field at the Acapulco event his upcoming week. Nadal is joined by Alexander Zverev, Stan Wawrinka, the surging Felix Auger-Aliassime, John Isner and Nick Kyrgios who beat Nadal en route to his 2019 Acapulco title.

Nadal, who lost to Kyrgios in a stunner last year, opens against Pablo Andujar, then could face another Aussie in the second round, Alex De Minaur.

Dusan Lajovic or Reilly Opelka could await in the quarters before either Wawrinka or Grigor Dimitrov in the semifinals.

2019 finalist Zverev could see Isner in the quarters with Kyrgios potentially in his semifinal. Kyrgios faces a tough title defense with Ugo Humbert, then Taylor Fritz/John Millman and potentially Felix Auger-Aliassime in the quarters.

Nadal won his most recent Acapulco title in 2013 beating David Ferrer, and also won in 2005 when he beat another countryman Albert Montanes. The Spaniard is seeking his first title since his US Open win.
