It's over for Juan Tello et Fernando Belasteguin at Mar Del Plata P1. The local pair lost to the world number 1s Arturo Coello et Agustín Tapia. With this defeat, Fernando Belasteguin played his last career match in Argentina, his native country.

A lot of emotions at the end of this quarter-final, pitting Tello / Belasteguin against Tapia / Coello. A meeting all the more followed as it could be from the last dance of King Bela in his country of origin. In this match, the 5 seed was not able to do much against formidable number 1s. A meeting where Fernando Belasteguin and Juan Tello only won 39 points out of 101 played. Therefore, the Boss bowed out: 6 / 3 6 / 1.

At the end of the quarter-final, the emotion was palpable in the stands of the center court… and even on the pitch. Arturo Coello and Agustín Tapia, who both played alongside Bela in their careers, went to turn off their mentor, without being able to hide their own emotions.

At the post-match microphone, King Bela had a word for his country, that he leaves with his head held high despite this defeat: “My heart is in Argentina. I have lived away from here for 24 years, but every day I live as if I were here. My heart is heavenly and white".

Even if we expected it, Fernando Belasteguin's last match will mark the history of the padel. And what symbol to face these two former partners Arturo Coello and Agustín Tapia.

It was his brother who one day told him to accompany him on a track. padel, since then, Gwenaëlle has never left the court. Except when it comes to going to watch the broadcast of Padel Magazine, World Padel Tour… or Premier Padel…or the French Championships. In short, she is a fan of this sport.
