Big sensation at the end of the day on the central track of the Premier Padel Major of Doha , at the Khalifa International Complex: on a court made slow by cooler conditions in the evening, the big favorites Juan Lebron and Ale Galan bit the dust in the quarter-finals.
Their executioners are named Alejandro Ruiz and Momo Gonzalez, winners in two sets in 1:31, with a score of 6/4 7/6. The Andalusians, seeded 7, proved superior by winning 100% of the break points obtained, seizing the service of TdS1 on three occasions. On the other hand, they saved three of the five break points they had to defend.
Momo and Ale won only 48% of the points but were able to be more realistic in key moments, such as during the final decisive game, winning 7 points to 2.
One of the keys to the match was Lebron's relative refrigeration, with Galan being pressured to the point of committing some unusual fouls. Finalists last year in Doha, the world No. 1 leave the field open to their rivals Tapia and Coello, who qualified earlier for the semi-finals.
This is the second surprise of this tournament, after the defeat yesterday of Navarro / Tello facing Sanchez / Campagnolo.
