The first edition of the Monte Carlo Padel Master returns to the pair Pablo Lima and Fernando Belasteguin. She won against Paquito Navarro and Matias Diaz on the score of 6 / 3 6 / 1.

"They only leave crumbs"

Numbers worldwide have not done in detail this week by offering no chance to Paquito Navarro and Matis Diaz beaten 6 / 3 6 / 1.

However, from the beginning of the match Paquito and Matias put pressure on Bela and Lima to the point of breaking and leading 3 / 0.

It is then that the machine is stranded on the side of Matias and that Bela makes us Bela.

While the public expected not a surprise but at least a huge match between these two pairs, the Lima / Bela machine goes on the offensive by winning a game that will perhaps be the turning point of the match: the 4e jeu.

Contested, with points of great classes, but here it is, the world numbers have emphasized the effectiveness while Paquito that of the artistic one with moves which are not necessarily in the manual of the padel...

Relentless record: 9 consecutive games lost by the Matias / Paquito pair.

Paquito does the job / Matias loses the thread

Paquito continues to do the job, it is Matias, yet a very solid player who loses the thread of the game, him, who had been irreproachable throughout the week. He makes unforced errors, unusual mistakes or takes certain points backwards.

The world numbers did not ask so much, especially at the same time, they support where it hurts playing mainly on Matias. Diaz clearly loses his diagonal against Lima. And Paquito, elected player of the match, can only see the damage.

A public that grows and hope is reborn

The public wanted more. He thus pushed the outsiders to revolt.

At 4 / 2 in the second set for Bela and Lima, we thought of a possible turnaround.

But in front, it's too solid. No failure, or so little, if we count the tiny devolution of Lima in the middle of the second set.

Bela and Lima lift the magnificent Monte Carlo Padel Master trophy.
