Tough day for the seeds in the Round of 1 of the APT Padel Lisboa Open Tour since 4 of them will not be there for the quarterfinals!
Bye bye seeds 2, 4, 6 and 7! This is how we could sum up the day of the knockout stages of the APT Padel Lisboa Open Tower. If the seeded 4, Rocafort / Oliveira, forfeited, the others were indeed beaten on the court!
The good news is of course that in a rainy day, the organization managed to get all the matches played!
The South Americans dominated the day overall, notably with victories for Bejarano / Almaro against Pascual / Rocha, and for Flores / Julianoti against Scatena / Tison. At home, the Portuguese defended their skin dearly! Witness the victories of Deus / Deus against Soliverez / Melgratti and of Schaefer / Lahoz against Cejas / Blasco! The 100% Argentinian clash between TS2 Barrera / Egea and Del Moral Frugoni turned to the advantage of the latter who passed a 6/0 to their opponents in the third and last round!
In the end, we will have 8 Argentines, 4 Brazilians, 3 Portuguese, and 1 Spaniard in the quarter-finals, with very attractive posters:
- Flores / Julianoti (TS3) vs Deus / Deus - 12h00
- Del Moral / Frugoni vs Lahoz / Schaefer - to be continued
- Alfonso / Chiostri (TS1) vs Arce / Dal Bianco (TS5) - 18:00 p.m.
- Almada / Bejarano vs Flores / Da Cunha - to follow
