Fernando to play Abierto Mexicano Telcel
Fernando will replace Gael Monfils in next week’s Abierto Mexicano Telcel, according to the tournament’s website. Gael had to withdraw from the tournament due to swelling in his knee, so Fernando stepped in to take his place. This means he’ll also displace Fernando Gonzalez as top seed.
This is Fernando second trip to Acapulco. His first was back in 2004, when he reached the final (losing to compatriot Carlos Moya)
