Yesterday the first day of the main draw of the P2 in Puerto Cabello in Venezuela concluded in a sumptuous seaside setting.

Puerto Cabelo 2024

Among the men, Tino Libaak and Leo Augsburger struck a big blow. The Argentines, from qualifying, delivered a titanic duel against Edu Alonso and Alex Arroyo, one of the promising pairs of the season. The young nuggets won 6/4 – 5/7 – 6/4 in two hours of play. They are waiting for the winner of the first round between Yanguas/Garrido and Semmler/Lijo.

For the top seeds, if Bergamini/Ruiz (8) had no problem dismissing Patinotis/Dominguez (6/2 – 5/2 ab.), the task was much more complicated for Nieto/Sanz who had need three rounds to get rid of Cardona/Ruiz (4/6 – 6/2 – 7/5).

On the women's side of the table, if Claudia Jensen is the youngest hope of the padel world, Noa Canovas is also positioning himself as a rising star. The 20-year-old, associated with Jimena Velasco, created the surprise of the day by beating Aranzazu Osoro and Carmen Goenaga (6/4 – 6/4). A result that suits Frenchwoman Carla Touly and Margarida Fernandes, since they are the next opponents of the Spaniards.
