What a pair! Argentinian Gonzalo Díaz and Luciano Capra have given their all to beat the world number two, yet recently crowned at the World Padel Tour of Nucia.
It must be said that "GODO" and Capra have all the weapons to foil the whimsical pair Sanyo / Paquito. There is not really any rhythm or some people will say that, but it is a false rhythm.
From start to finish, Sanyo and Paquito got bogged down in the small balls of GODO, the particularly slow smashes of the left-handed Capra.
It's clear, it was certainly the slowest match of the competition ... and it pays. Tactically, Sanyo and Paquito have failed to play their game with countless direct mistakes to their credit. Paquito when to him to multiply the huge gifts.
At 5 / 4 in the second set against them, Paquito makes a fatalistic smile to his partner who wants to say everything.
After having dropped the pair GUTIERREZ / JUAN MARTIN DIAZ, it is the turn of PAQUITO / SANYO beaten 7 / 5 and 6 / 4.
They will have to pass the stage Maxi Sanchez / Matias Diaz in the semifinals to hope to pass in the final. A match on paper that seems open for both pairs.
Matías Díaz and Maxi Sánchez will certainly be a little tired after the big match made the day before against Maxi Grabiel and Ramiro Moyano 3 / 6, 7 / 6 and 7 / 5.
The other half: Belasteguin-Lima vs. Lamperti-Mieres
One of the great classics of the season Fernando Belasteguin and Pablo Lima against Miguel Lamperti and Juani Mieres. The two pairs qualified quietly.
Belasteguin and Lima Vs Adrian Allemandi and Agustín Gómez Silingo: 6 / 0 and 6 / 3
Lamperi and Mieres Vs Willy Lahoz and Aday Santan: 6 / 2 and 6 / 2.
