It was one of the most anticipated matches of the quarter-final day at the Greenweez Paris Major, and he kept all his promises! Beaten by Bergamini and Ruiz in Finland, Coello and Tapia took revenge at Roland Garros. But it wasn't easy!
Indeed, in the Parisian heat, the most prolific pair since the start of the season had to battle against two players who never give up, and who have become somewhat specialists in eliminating the favorites.
This Friday, the outsiders got off to a perfect start, taking the first set 6/4 somewhat against all expectations. Stunned, the public present at Roland wondered if the Spanish-Brazilian pair were not going to repeat their feat.
But Ruiz and Bergamini quickly came back down to earth when Coello and Tapia started to really put their game together. And it was not the heat of Philippe-Chatrier and the heat stroke received by “El Rey Arturo” that changed the situation.
Gustavo Pratto's players, who knew how to take full advantage of the interruption to close the roof and the change in conditions, won 4/6 6/1 6/2 and validated their ticket for the semi-finals. Tomorrow, they will face the winners of the match between Nieto/Sanz and Diestro/Leal.
Now, it's the turn of Alix Collombon and Lorena Rufo to make their debut in the center, facing Sofia Araujo and Alejandra Salazar. With the support of the public, will the Franco-Spanish pair be able to create the feat?
