The Mexican Open, also known as the Abierto Mexicano Telcel presented by HSBC for sponsorship reasons (Spanish: Abierto mexicano; shortened from Abierto mexicano Telcel presentado por HSBC), is a joint professional tennis tournament played on outdoor hard courts, and held annually in late February at the Fairmont Acapulco Princess in Acapulco, Mexico. It was played on outdoor red clay courts until 2013. The change to hard courts was introduced in 2014. The Mexican Open is part of the ATP World Tour 500 series on the Association of Tennis Professionals (ATP) World Tour, and of the WTA International tournaments on the Women's Tennis Association (WTA) Tour. The 2015 edition took place from 21 February to 28 February 2015.[1][2]

The tournament was introduced on the ATP Tour in 1993, and began on the WTA Tour in 2001. It was held in Mexico City from 1993 to 1998, and once more in 2000, before being relocated to Acapulco in 2001. It's the closing leg of the four-ATP tournament Golden Swing. Starting in 2014, the Mexican Open's surface changed from clay to hard courts, serving as a lead-up to the first ATP World Tour Masters 1000 event of the season in Indian Wells, United States.
