Fernando Belasteguin and Juan Tello honor their Betclic seed 1 status Premier Padel Bordeaux P2. The Argentines qualify for a first semi-final together.

The opportunity was too good to pass up, Bela and “El Gato”, who had until now never passed the quarter-finals of a tournament together, took advantage of the absence of the four best pairs in the world to qualify for the last four of a tournament together for the first time.

But nothing was easy this Friday. Indeed, faced with Juanlu Esbri and Javi Rico who played their luck to the fullest, Miguel Sciorilli's players were forced to whip. Annoyed at the start of the match by a somewhat annoying spectator, Bela and Tello conceded their entry service and saw their opponents take the lead in this match. So much so that they ended up dropping a set for the first time since they were in Gironde.

Pushed to their limits by two players who had nothing to lose, the favorites of the match (and of the tournament for some) used all their experience to regain control in this match even though they seemed in a very bad position in the second round. Stronger when necessary, Bela and Tello first returned to one round everywhere, before finishing the work behind. Final score: 4/6 6/4 6/3 in 1h55 for seed 1.

Tomorrow, Fernando and Juan will play their first ever semi-final together. It will be against Alex Ruiz and Momo Gonzalez, who, as the native of Antequera told us in an interview, do not hide their ambitions in this P2!
