The first day of the Mar Del Plata main draw Premier Padel P1 was marked by two “A1” clashes Padel vs Premier Padel". And if we expected a lot from the debut on the official FIP circuit of Alfonso and Aguirre, it was ultimately another pair from Fabrice Pastor's circuit who distinguished themselves in Argentina...

This pair is the one formed by Fede Chiostri and Maxi Sanchez Blasco. A6's number 1 duo Padel created a little surprise by dominating Arnau Ayats (55) and Fran Guerrero (51), after completely missing their start to the match. The Argentinians won 7/6 6/2 in front of their home crowd and qualified for the second round, where they will try to continue their momentum against the 12th pair of the Premier Padel, Gil / Moyano.

Unlike their compatriots, who had decided to skip the A1 France Open, Aguirre and Alfonso were present in Beausoleil, where they reached the final. With only 24 hours to reach Argentina and recover from their three-set defeat (and their week), the A00 numbers 2 did not really have an ideal preparation for their match. However, they were far from ridiculous against Lijo (1) and Diestro (48). But unfortunately for them, Tolito and Gonza certainly lacked a little freshness to be able to make the difference in hot moments. They lost 38/7 5/6 in just over 4 hours.

These results in any case show one thing, which is that the residents of A1 Padel are entirely capable of holding their own against regulars in the main tables of the Premier Padel, players who are around 50th place in the world. Can they do better? Start of response this Tuesday with the second match of Chiostri / Sanchez Blasco!
