Zip-lining is one way to start a tournament week. It's no secret Acapulco is an incredible destination on the 2019 schedule, made even better by being a joint WTA and ATP event. Sloane Stephens and Alexander Zverev took full advantage of their good fortune and went zip-lining.


"I love zip-lining, but I’ve never gone forward like Super Man style," Stephens said. "I was a little bit nervous. I was like I don’t know why I did this especially a day before a tournament that’s not very smart."

They also played mini-tennis amidst the cliffs and ocean, something that's become a tradition at the Abierto Mexicano.


Stephens almost missed her day of fun as she struggled to get from Houston to Acapulco on United.

It all worked out in the end as the top seed took Pauline Parmentier on Tuesday night. Zverev, the No. 2 seed, starts against Alexei Popyrn.
