After having eliminated yesterday Arnau Ayats and Fran Guerrero, two players respectively numbers 55 and 51 in the FIP ranking, Fede Chiostri and Maxi Sanchez Blasco moved to the next level this Tuesday by defeating Xisco Gil (25) and Ramiro Moyano (27) in the second round of the Mar Del Plata P1!

Who said that A1 players Padel did not have the level for the main tables of the Premier Padel ? This Tuesday, the Argentinians, who had decided to skip the A1 France Open, needed all their energy to win what is so far considered THE match of the tournament. An exceptional fight in rather slow conditions, which saw the wild-card of the tournament to win after almost 3 hours of play.

If Xisco and Ramiro are struggling at the start of the season, this result still remains a big surprise. Especially since when the two pairs found themselves one set away, we thought that Severino Iezzi's players, who had finally just got the measure of their rivals, were going to be able to impose all their experience. But the opposite ultimately happened! Not distraught at having lost the second set 6/2 or having seen their opponents save three match points, Chiostri and Sanchez in turn saved a match point on their rivals' serve, before driving home the point in a tie-break during which they will have taken their chance to the fullest.

Fede and Maxi won 6/3 2/6 7/6 (4) and established themselves as THE surprise of the tournament so far. On Thursday, they will try to continue their incredible run against the winners of the match between Lamperti / Belluati and Sanz / Nieto, a match to watch now.
