An enthusiastic crowd of 20 340 fans gathered to watch Carlos Alcaraz play Tommy Paul at Mexico City's main bullring on Wednesday, grasping their one chance this year to see world class tennis players in their own city.

Although the crowd was smaller than those which turned out to watch Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal at similar exhibitions in previous years, there was no less passion at the Monumental Plaza de Toros.

"I will take a picture to never forget this," Alcaraz said after the match. "It has been a very special event, the truth is that I can only thank you for supporting tennis and me."
