Since the start of the season, we have felt thatAndrea Ustero et Alejandra Alonso have passed a milestone and reached another level of play. Already last year, they knew how to create small exploits, taking out the best players in the world from a tournament. Although they are not seeded today, the Spanish pair still managed to make their nest among the elite of the padel World.

Which means that today, and for the third time this season, we find Andrea Ustero and Alejandra Alonso in the semi-final of the Santiago P1. This time, they won against a pair made up for the end of the American tour: Carolina Orsi / Aranzazu Osoro : 6/4 6/3.


In the last tournaments, the two players had come up against stronger players than them: Riera et Araujo à Acapulco, Jose Maria et Sanchez à Mar del Plata.

For this semi-final in Santiago, things are a little different because Alejandra Alonso and Andrea Ustero because they will face the number 8 seed of this tournament: Patty Llaguno et Lucia Sainz. Indeed, the lower part of the table experienced a lot of damage with the elimination of several top seeds, before this last square.

Today, on the track in Chile, we will witness a real clash of generations in this meeting between the young pair Ustero/Alonso and the veterans Patty Llaguno and Lucia Sainz. It remains to be seen whether this is the wisdom of the age who will win… or the passion of youth !

In any case, whatever the result, we will have a real surprise in the final of this Santiago tournament!
