Padel Magazine - The men's circuit definitely offers crazy games and the public really gets their money's worth.
Big surprise in the first round of the main draw at the Grenada International Open ... where one of the big favorites was forced to fold in front of a pair that had until now had too little reference in the main draw.
Javier limones and his team-mate Raul Diaz have eliminated the 3 global numbers Cristian Gutiérrez and Matías Díaz 6 / 3, 6 / 7 and 7 / 5.
The public filled the sports hall's stands. If all day long, the favorites are gone, Javier and Raul have definitely messed up this hierarchy.
It was a dream day for Javier Limones. First because he played in this palace so intimidating sports ... But also because it took for this couple to hang on and fight to the end to win a match that will remain in their memory.
So yes, Cristian and Matías were not at the top with including a Cristian Gutiérrez injury to the right hand that is still not fully handed. But the match was a good match and the losers admitted it.
Today, Javier Limones and Raul Diaz tackle Ángel Ruiz and Rubén Rivera. They will play to reach the quarterfinals which would be totally unexpected at this stage of the competition. But with confidence, everything is allowed.
The other matches on the central court were rather expeditious and unsurprising since Juan Martín Díaz and Fernando Belasteguin easily beat David Gutiérrez and Ramiro Moyano totally overwhelmed by the superiority of the 1 world numbers, while the 2 numbers worldwide conceded 3 games of more at Botello-Concepción with a score without appeal: 6-2 6-3.
Miguel Lamperti and Grabiel Maxi also pass. Gaby RecA and Nerone Seba were also beaten 7 / 6 and 6 / 3 by Malacalza Gaston and Alejandro Ruiz.
We will conclude with another surprise of the day: Adrian White and Diego Ramos of Uruguay defeated Jake Bardasco Vagisil and Andoni. Next game against the 1 numbers worldwide.
The second round of the day began at 10 hours in the Sports Palace of Granada, with the duel between Sanyo Gutiérrez and Maxi Sánchez against Juan Gisbert and Eduard Bainad.
