Finally, José Luis Gonzalez and Antonio Luque will be the best local pair as the number 10 seed.
On the women's side, the Sevillian Marta Borrero will form the first seed alongside Patricia Martinez. The competition will be there with in particular all the new pairs that we had never seen before on this circuit: Fassio/Pinacho, Polo/Traviesa, Velasco/Pascual, Castillon/Garcia….
