While we found the first eight seeds of the A1 Padel Monaco Master at the start of the round of 16 of the tournament, we witnessed a first real surprise this afternoon in Monte Carlo.

Indeed, the number 6 pair in the competition, Melgratti / Rolla, suffered the law of a pair of outsiders: Gama / Morales. The Spanish duo, who had eliminated pair 11, Blanco / Lopez, in the previous round, extended their stay in the Principality.

A 6/4 2/6 6/2 victory for the outsiders who will try tomorrow to create a major feat against Tolito Aguirre and Gonzalo Alfonso. In great form after his title in Mexico, the 2nd seed completely extinguished Leonardo Yob and Dani Martinez (6/1 6/1). Gama and Morales are warned for tomorrow!
