Like Alex Ruiz and Juan Tello (TS7), Fernando Belasteguin and Lucho Capra (TS6) lost for the second consecutive time in the round of XNUMX.

The 2024 Middle East tour is unlikely to leave any lasting memories for Bela and Capra. The Argentines, who decided to join forces during the winter break, are having a lot of trouble finding their sensations on the track. After a pre-season complicated by the return of pain in the “Boss's” forearm, the 100% Wilson pair is struggling to find their feet.

And if Fernando and Lucho had ended up losing a good fight against Patiniotis / Dominguez in Riyadh, this Tuesday in Doha they seemed lost on the track. Facing the solid Cardona and Ruiz, the 6 seed gave the feeling of never really getting into the match. However, after a more than complicated first set, the Albiceleste players recovered well at the start of the second set, but the improvement did not last.

Without ever really being pushed to their limits, the Spanish pair won 6/1 6/4 in 1h19, qualified for the quarters, and confirmed the very good things shown at the UPT in La Coruña. Tomorrow, the always very clean Javi and the very powerful Pablo will challenge the winners of the Riyadh rematch, namely either Paquito and Sanyo or Esbri and Rico.

For the native of Pehuajo and his teammate, as for Alex Ruiz and Juan Tello, it is time to sound the alarm before things become more complicated. Indeed, if these two pairs come out of the eight seeds, they could have much more complicated second rounds on paper...

A little lost on the track, Capra suffered on the right diagonal against a much more inspired and decisive Cardona. For the moment, the left-hander from Quilmes is unable to relieve Bela who, at almost 45 years old and with a lot of protection at the elbow, seems far from his best level. Let us hope, however, that for his last season, the “King” will soon be able to show a better face, and that his sidekick will also regain some of his splendor….
