It was a very special match which was played on track 2 of the Premier Padel Riyadh P1 this evening. Indeed, last season Garrido first shared the track with Chingotto before teaming up with Gonzalez, while Yanguas also played with the two men facing him, even winning a tournament with each of them. them ! We can therefore say that all the protagonists knew each other very well.

And in fast conditions, it was the outsiders Miguel and Javi who started the meeting best. Very aggressive, they didn't let Momo and Fede breathe, who couldn't get their game going. The number 10 pair imposed their rhythm and left the 5 seed without a solution. While they were leading 6/3 5/2, the Andalusians seemed set for an easy victory, but that was without counting on the resilience of Gonzalez and Chingotto...

The favorites on paper, in their characteristic style, were going to fight and it was going to bear fruit. Coming back to the score little by little, Reca's men managed to snatch an almost unexpected tie-break. And as is often the case in such a situation, they took the lead in the deciding game and managed to lead 5 points to 3. We saw the third set approaching quickly. But once again, this match gave us a twist.

While they seemed much less calm, Garrido and Yanguas managed, somewhat against all odds, to string together four points in a row and win a heated tie-break, marked by two somewhat contentious points. Final score: 6/3 7/6 (5).

The Andalusians hold their first reference victory, and one more seed bites the dust in Saudi Arabia. Tomorrow, it is against Stupa and Di Nenno that the number 10 pair will try to create a very big sensation. The Superpibes, who have still not lost a set in Riyadh, were very strong against Sanchez / Rubio: 6/4 6/1.
