Kristina Mladenovic says that she has put her disappointing end to 2017 behind her - and is excited to be back in Acapulco for the Abierto Mexicano.

"2017 is in the past - it's an old story," she said before the start of the tournament, reflecting on a 15-match losing streak that extended into the new season.

The 24-year-old added that she was honored to return to Acapulco, where she hopes to go one better than she managed last year, saying: "I feel very privileged that the tournament has invited me to come back here."
