Javi Garrido and Lucas Campagnolo had a very big game to take out Pablo Lima and Maxi Sanchez in round of XNUMX of Premier Padel Qatar Major.
This is a pair that is comfortable outdoors! After beating the odds and reaching the final of the World Padel Tour Miami Open outdoors, Lucas Campagnolo and Javi Garrido prove that they can also be counted on in Doha.
Indeed, as in Florida, the players of Maxi Grabiel dominated the two former world number ones Pablo Lima and Maxi Sanchez. A victory acquired in three sets (6/4 3/6 6/3) against the seeded 5 of the tournament and which allows them to advance to the quarter-finals. Tomorrow, a very big match awaits them against another pair that shines outside: that made up of Alex Ruiz and Franco Stupaczuk. Favorites on paper, Carlos Pozzoni's players had to fight a good battle today to overcome young Ivan Ramirez and Alex Arroyo: 6/3 7/6.

Tomorrow, big shocks await us as you can see below:
