Luis Mukul comes from a very humble family in Yucatan. A few years ago a tennis school was opened in front of his house and Luis and his brother started training. During the Pan American Special Olympics Games in 2009 in Monterrey City, Luis played alongside Margarita Zavala the first lady of Mexico, a great sporting experience for him. Luis has a twin brother named Victor the two brothers were born with intellectual disabilities and the two played tennis for Special Olympics. Luis was selected to represent Mexico in the Pan American Special Olympics Tennis tournament in 2013, in Bolivia.
