Mexico’s Alejandro Reyes came into the Kiva Open as the top seed, and he dropped just a single game en route to securing his second win of the season.

Reyes lost his opening game of the Challenger 5 level competition. He found himself a game down to Pakistan’s Ahsan Ayaz after losing the opener 14-12. He fought back strongly though, dropping nine more points across the next three games.

That was followed by a tough straight games win over compatriot Allan Nunez in the quarter finals. The first tow games both went to tie-breaks. Reyes came through the first 14-12, before then winning the second 13-11. He went on to win in three to advance.

The semis saw Reyes’ easiest match, as he dropped a total of just 11 points in his last four clash with France’s Laszlo Godde. He won 11-2, 11-5, 11-4 to set up a meeting with home favourite Dillon Huang in the final.

The first two games were tight, but Reyes was able to come through both, the second almost going to a tie-break at 11-9. He then cruised to victory, winning the third game 11-3 to take the title. He becomes just the third Mexican to take multiple wins this season, following Alfredo Avila and Diana Garcia in doing so.

The Kiva Open returns to the Tour calendar for the first time in four years, with a 16-strong draw aiming to win in Santa Fe, New Mexico.

The tournament ran for five years from 2015 to 2019, with Canadian Michael McCue, India’s Aditya Jagtap and American Christopher Hanson among the previous champions.

This year’s competition will be a Challenger 5 level tournament, with Mexico’s Alejandro Reyes as the top seed. Pakistan’s Nasir Iqbal, the former World No.35 will also be among the contenders for the crown.

England’s Lewis Doughty, Egypt’s Abdelaziz Hegazy, Frenchman Laszlo Godde, Guatemala’s Luis Quisquinay, American Dillon Huang and Mexico’s Allan Nunez make up the rest of the top eight seeds for this week’s event in Santa Fe.

The event takes place from Wednesday, May 3 to Saturday, May 6 in Kiva Club in Santa Fe, NM, United States
