He also disputed the Acapulco ATP, held in Mexico, where he defeated Norrie in the final by a double 6-4 to win the title. In the Miami ATP he lost in the final against Fritz, so he returns to compete more than a month after having to be on leave due to an injury. After playing at the Madrid Open at home and with good sensations, he looked for the title, but his compatriot Carlos Alcaraz left him out in the quarterfinal round.
