Mike Yanguas and Javi Garrido's magical week isn't over yet!

After eliminating Juan Lebron and Ale Galan in eighth, the tenth pair in the table achieved their second feat in the space of three days, also beating the third pair of the Ooredoo Qatar Major in Doha, Franco Stupaczuk / Martin Di Nenno . The Superpibes will therefore not be able to defend the title they won last year in Qatar, they who lost 6/2 7/6 in 1h41. Stupaczuk and Di Nenno made too many mistakes, especially in key moments.

So Yanguas and Garrido will play today for the title of the first Major of the year against Arturo Coello and Agustin Tapia (2). Gustavo Pratto's men were very solid in the other semi-final, dominating Paquito Navarro and Sanyo Gutierrez 6/0 6/4. Thanks to this victory, Coello is already assured of returning to the top of the FIP ranking on Monday, after being overtaken by Lebron and Galan last week.

In the women's draw, Paula Josemaria and Ari Sanchez are looking for a double after their victory in Riyadh. The world numbers 1 battled yesterday, but they finally managed to beat Marta Ortega and Veronica Virseda (4) with a score of 4/6 6/2 6/4. The new association ends its first tournament with a semi-final, a more than honorable result.

To challenge Josemaria/Sanchez it is another new pair, that formed by Gemma Triay and Claudia Fernandez (3), who will show up this Friday. In a match that lasted almost two hours, Triay and his young 18-year-old partner beat Alejandra Salazar and Tamara Icardo with a score of 7/5 6/4: a match that Triay/Fernandez started very well (double break in the first set) before the comeback of Salazar/Icardo.

Despite a small physical problem in the second set, which forced Fernandez to request a medical time-out, Triay carried the pair on her shoulders and tomorrow she will go in search of her second title on the circuit Premier Padel after the one she won in Rome, at the Foro Italico, associated with Marta Ortega.

The finals will begin at 17:00 p.m. local time (15:00 p.m. in France). We will start with the girls, and the boys will follow right after. In France, the matches can be followed on Canal Plus Sport 360.
