At the end of a tight second set, Martin Di Nenno and Franco Stupaczuk won the Premier Padel Qatar Major at the expense of Bela and Sanyo. However, the veterans will have fought until the end!

Indeed, if the first set was largely in favor of the “Superpibes”, their elders clearly gave them the chance in the second round, each time coming back from a badly embarked situation.

The third set was not far away…

Led 2/0, then 5/4 service Stupa/Di Nenno and finally 4/0 in the tie-break, the two living legends of the padel worldwide have been able to pick up each time, after efforts that are sometimes very (too) great. We will obviously remember this moment when Sanyo asked the referee if he could go drink between two points, declaring with his usual humor “It's either drink or give up”.

And this fatigue, we felt it in this tie-break under high tension, with multiple hooked points, which finally ended on two unforced errors from Gutiérrez (7 points to 5). the one who wanted “be more aggressive” this Sunday was, however at the cost of a greater number of errors. It must be said that opposite, Di Nenno was able to achieve a large number of exceptional defenses, forcing his eldest to put in a little more each time. Despite this, Carlos Pozzoni's players will have made more mistakes and won more winning points than those of Miguel Sciorilli.

Di Nenno the man of the match

Stupa and Di Nenno therefore won the first trophy of their new association and established themselves as a pair to be reckoned with throughout the season. Martin keeps his title in Doha, he who, according to coach and commentator Jorge Martinez, was “the big man at the end of the match”.

For their part, Bela and Sanyo respond to the skeptics at the start of the year, who saw it difficult to tickle the youngest. Today, the veterans have clearly come close to pushing their opponents to a third set, the outcome of which would have been very difficult to predict.
