It probably wasn't the tournament they expected. But unfortunately, Fernando Belasteguin, who was making a big comeback in Lombardy, was not 100% recovered from his elbow injury. Despite a victory in the first round, Yanguas and Bela were forced to abandon, propelling Zapata and Guerrero in the quarter-finals of Milano P1.
During the press conference to announce the withdrawal of his team, Fernando Belasteguin, who played his last match alongside Mike Yanguas, had some touching words towards his partner, moving the young player to tears.
Bela's words for Yanguas
We know that the two players are very close on and off the field, but despite this, ein 2024, the Belasteguin/Yanguas association will disappear. The pair therefore played their last match (barring a huge surprise next season).
In his speech, the King Bela showed a lot of affection towards the young Andalusian. A few words that will have moved “Madre Topo” until tears.
Bella: “I took with me the youth of a young boy on the trail. But beyond that, I got a very polite boy off the court. A really nice guy who managed to win my heart and that of my family. And I would like to keep that with me".
“Everything I learned from him was incredible”
The young Spanish player completely collapsed. Immediately, Belasteguin came to take him in his arms to console him a little.
This statement is all the more touching as 2024 will be the Argentinian's last season. In response to these words, and to Belasteguin's official announcement that he will retire at the end of next season, Miguel Yanguas also saluted his partner of the season "I learned so much from him. Fernando is so determined and competitive despite the pain. He did everything to be by my side and accompany me during yesterday's match. This way of never giving up, of always giving the best, I will remember it forever".
So it’s the end for the Yanguas/Belasteguin pair. However, the Spaniard has not finished his season since he will play in the Master Final in Barcelona, alongside a certain Sanyo Gutiérrez.
It was his brother who one day told him to accompany him on a track. padel, since then, Gwenaëlle has never left the court. Except when it comes to going to watch the broadcast of Padel Magazine, World Padel Tour… or Premier Padel…or the French Championships. In short, she is a fan of this sport.
