Outstanding Mexican tennis players will not be in the Davis Cup due to differences with the Mexican Tennis Federation

Several Mexican tennis players decided not to participate in the Davis Cup against Chinese Taipei due to the lack of interest and plans from the Mexican Tennis Federation (FMT).. Santiago González, Alejandro Hernández and Miguel Ángel Reyes-Varela were the players who raised their voices and will not play in the next tie.

“After a difficult deliberation for us and several attempts to dialogue with the Mexican Tennis Federation In the search for the best performance of the representative team and of the FMT itself, no positive conclusion has been reached, and therefore, we have decided not to participate in the series in Metepec, State of Mexico”.

Ernesto Escobedo, Lucas Gómez, Hans Hach Verdugo, Gerardo López Villaseñor and Manuel Sánchez Montemayor are also included in the letter delivered to the FMT.

“The International Tennis Federation (ITF) seeks as a priority that the teams they represent in the Davis Cup be with the best possible elements, as well as meet optimal standards for the largest sports nation competition in the world. It is sad that the FMT does not have the minimum standards in dealing and planning with the best national representatives. The ITF is aware of our reasons for not being part of this series,” the statement said.

The Mexican Tennis Federation has not responded or issued a statement about the resignation of the tennis players, while they have continued promoting the matches of the Mexican team against Chinese Taipei. These matches will be played on February 4 and 5 at Club Deportivo La Asunción.

Santiago González has been one of the most successful Mexican tennis players and is currently ranked number 22 in the doubles ranking. During his career he has 18 titles.
