Small disappointment on this semi-final day in New York. Due to humidity, the semi-finals, which were to be played on Saturday, were postponed until Sunday morning. The final will be played immediately after, starting at 16 p.m. local time.
As a reminder, the first semi-final will pit the pair Abud/Frugoni, the real surprise of this tournament, against the number two seed, Aguirre/Allemandi. Martin Abud is the first Paraguayan player to reach the semi-final stage on the A1 circuit.
This match will be followed by the Classic of the season: Franco Dal Bianco and Maximiliano Arce will face Juan I. De Pascual and Gonzalo G. Alfonso. Dal Bianco/Arce aims for a ninth title this season in the Big Apple. But to do so, they will have to win against De Pascual and Alfonso, with full confidence in this tournament.
The two teams that win their semi-final will not have time to rest. The final of this New York Grand Master will be played in the middle of the afternoon.
Will this lack of rest have an impact on the outcome of this tournament? Answer this evening.
