The serious things begin in Italy, with the quarter-finals of the Premier Padel Genova P2 which starts at 11:00 a.m. this Friday.

For the girls, it's simple, there wasn't the slightest surprise during the round of 16, so we find the eight best-ranked pairs in the quarter-finals! Yesterday, all women's matches were played in two sets, will we have closer matches today?

On the men's side, however, three seeded players are missing: Sanz / Nieto (TS7), Arroyo / Gutiérrez (TS8) and Belasteguin / Tello (TS5). The first lost to V.Ruiz / Bergamini in a single-game match. The second suffered the remontada of version 4.0 of Maxi Sanchez and Lucho Capra, and the third lost against Pablo Cardona and Javi Ruiz with again a remontada. For Bela, it is a second defeat against this pair after that of Qatar with Capra. Not long ago, the Argentinian said that Javi Ruiz was one of the most underrated players on the tour. Here is new proof!

Among the matches that promise to be the most enticing, we are thinking of Triay / Fernandez vs Castello / Jensen for the ladies and of course Yanguas / Garrido vs Stupaczuk / Di Nenno for the men!
