The semi-finals of Argentinian P1 delivered their verdict last night. And unsurprisingly, it is the two best male pairs of the moment who will compete for the title.

Coello and Tapia imperturbable

The world numbers 1 and 2 had to work against Mike Yanguas and Javi Garrido, who were coming out of a high-tension game in the previous round. More inspired and more efficient on their serves, Coello/Tapia started well and took the lead from the first act.

In the second round, Yanguas and Garrido fought back. The doubles came back with a bang by placing Arturo Coello in the fridge (33% of balls played) and snatching a breathtaking tie-break. A scenario which did not worry the Spanish-Argentinian duo, who retained all their lucidity in heated moments. Agustin Tapia (48 direct points!) is elected MVP of the match. Final score: 6/3, 6/7, 6/2 in 2 hours 18 minutes of play.

“Chingalan” dismisses the Superpibes

Martin Di Nenno and Franco Stupaczuk have found their pet peeve. Beaten in Seville and Asunción, the Argentines fell again against Chingotto and Galan, who qualified for their fifth consecutive final (6/3, 6/3).

The number 2 seed dominated the meeting head and shoulders. More regular and more incisive, she was able to count on a Galan of great evenings with 21 points won and 6 unforced errors. And yet, it was Fede Chingotto who was called upon the most (62% of balls played)…

The two teams are now neck and neck (two coronations everywhere) in their clashes. Who will lift a third cup first? Answer in a few hours, at the end of a final which will be broadcast live on Canal + at 19 p.m., with Julien Guerre and Laura Clergue on commentary.
