The match between Yanguas/Garrido and Nieto/Sanz, counting for the quarters of the P1 of Mar Del Plata, was marked by a muscular exchange involving Mike Yanguas and Coki Nieto.

While Mike Yanguas and Javi Garrido were calmly heading towards victory (6/4, 4/0), the tension rose a notch following a contentious situation. We are at 40/30, the world number 11 hits the glass with his lob and asks the referee for a “challenge”. A decision that exasperates Nieto, convinced that the ball is a foul. A heated discussion then follows between the two men, with Coki Nieto threatening to withdraw (“If they give it to him, I’m leaving!” I am not playing ! ») and a Mike Yanguas who warms up with Maxi Grabiel, the coach of his opponents.

The VAR finally gives the point to Nieto/Sanz, but the Malaga native does not give up. He approaches the net to ask for explanations from his rival, who replies that he is close enough to speak. Jon Sanz comes to calm things down, and the game resumes to the whistles of the Argentine public.

This is not the first time that the Andalusian is involved in stories on the circuit. He still won with his partner (6/4, 6/1) and is preparing to challenge Coello/Tapia in the semifinals.

It was through his father that Auxence discovered the padel, one evening in June 2018. Today, he passionately follows the international circuit and teases the pala in his training club, Toulouse Padel Club.
