Guadalajara, Jalisco, November 15 2021.- In addition to offering the best women’s tennis in the world, the AKRON WTA Finals also allowed fans to experience another entertaining experience outside of the stadium. 

The wave of people entering the Pan American Tennis Center early, at the Dahaus restaurant, the atmosphere heated up with music from the best DJs throughout the day.

This Monday, DJ Paul lit up the day the session, followed by Ceci Torres and Yenitzel, a singer and a violinist who gave the tennis fans a taste of a Bruno Mars show. 

For Tuesday, DJ Sachary will open the show and will be followed by Petite Fleur (a singer) and Saramago (a saxophonist). 

Moreover, the little fans enjoyed watching the players as they are driven to the practice courts because that’s when they take the opportunity asl them for an autograph or a photo. Players usually accept because it is impossible to refuse such enthusiasm. 

The area where the matches can be watched include an outdoor area where the matches play on a giant screen and one can sit on comfortable oversized chairs; this gives an opportunity to fans to hangout while enjoying a refreshing drink.

As the day progresses, the excitement grows. While some rush to the training courts to watch their favorite players practice, others remain testing out different food. Near the glamour of all the different food stands, there is also a craftsman from the Santa Catarina community that offers different beaded products. He appreciates that the tournament has allowed him to display his merchandise, which ranges from bracelets to rings and bangles. 

The temperature begins to drop, but the heat of the people does not drop one degree. After fans spend some time in the commercial area, they get ready to take their place at the Akron Stadium. Many are seen running in a hurry to not miss a second of the match. 

During the tournament, different flags appear throughout the stadium to represent different players, such as Spain for Garbiñe Muguruza and Paula Badosa, and Poland, for Iga Swiatek. 

The mix of emotions continue to bloom, knowing that Guadalajara is living a historic week by hosting the last WTA women’s tournament of the year.
