In the final in Acapulco on Sunday, de Minaur defeated Casper Ruud of Norway in the final, 6-4, 6-4.

De Minaur was the third seed in Mexico, while Ruud was the sixth seed. Ruud is a three-time grand slam finalist, as he reached the finals at the 2022 and 2023 French Opens and 2022 United States Open.
