After the remake of Sanchez/Joesmaria and Triay/Fernandez, the second Ladies semi-final of the P2 in Seville will also have an air of déjà vu. Icardo/Salazar et Brea/González both obtained their ticket to the last four and will face each other again, a week after Brussels.

The Spanish women had it tough

Ale Salazar et Tamara Icardo took to Court 2 at the start of the afternoon to face the youngsters Claudia jensen et Jessica castello. The Spanish got the best start by making the entry break, a break that they held until the end of the first set: 6/4.

The Acapulco P1 Champions waited until the middle of the second round to step up the pace and equalize on a double break: 2/6. However, the last act was a copy and paste of the first: an entry break that Icardo and Salazar will keep to conclude after 2h30 of play: 6/4 – 2/6 – 6/4.

Brea and Gonzalez as bosses

At the start of the evening, Delfi Brea et Bea Gonzalez struggled to get into their quarter-final. Opposed to Virginia Riera et Sofia Araujo, the number two seed in the table made too many mistakes and was quickly down 1/3. Gonzalez then showed herself to be more aggressive and the two players reversed the trend, moving ahead on the scoreboard and ending the first set with a score of six games to four.

Riera and Araujo held up to two games throughout in the second set, before finding themselves short of solutions to finish the points. Brea and Gonzalez moved up a gear and were no longer giving away free points. They won 6/4 – 6/2 and continued their unbeaten streak with this 13th consecutive victory.

Tamara Icardo and Ale Salazar will therefore have the opportunity to take their revenge against Delfi Brea and Bea Gonzalez in the semi-final tomorrow at 16 p.m. on the Center Court of La Cartuja.
