It's definitely not good to be among the favorites in this Premier Padel Riyadh P1. We saw it with the eliminations of pairs 4, 6 and 7 for men.

Like Ortega / Triay or Salazar / Icardo among the ladies, Arturo Coello and Agustin Tapia have already left a set on the way in this resumption tournament.

Indeed, after starting well against Chozas / Perino, the number 2 pair saw the outsiders win the second set. Behind, as they generally do in such a situation, Gustavo Pratto's men accelerated and never looked in the rearview mirror again.

They win 7/5 4/6 6/3 and reach the quarter-finals, where tomorrow they will meet Edu Alonso and Alex Arroyo, who crushed the sensation Dominguez / Patiniotis in just over an hour: 6/1 6/3.

A little on alternating current during their first two matches, Agus' and Arturo will have to be more rigorous tomorrow against a young pair with long teeth.

To follow the rest of the eighth in Saudi Arabia this Wednesday:
