Delfi Brea and Bea Gonzalez, the 2nd pair in the world, recent finalists of the P1 in Mar del Plata, victorious in all the P2s since the start of the season, fell in the 16th finals of the P1 in Chile, facing a pair that was much less good as they are on paper, namely the Spaniards Nuria Rodriguez, 23rd player in the world, and Maria Eulalia Rodriguez Abajo, 50th player in the world.

However, the Spanish-Argentinian pair had progressed calmly in the first set, 6/1. But the machine got stuck. Victory for the Spanish pair in 3 sets: 1/6 6/3 7/5.

If among the gentlemen, it can happen to see surprises, among the ladies, it is much rarer. We will see if Rodriguez / Rodriguez Abajo will manage to continue this dynamic in the 8th against a pair within their reach, Sharifova / Martinez. The bottom of the table is very open and that could suit Sainz / Llugano (ts8).

Still at the bottom of the table, remember that Salazar / Icardo (TS4) also withdrew in 16th in favor of Rufo / Caldera. The lower part of the table no longer has its 2 and 4 seeds.

Unfortunately, this has no impact on the Collombon / Bidahorria pair, since it is located at the very top of the table and will play in 8th, no more and no less, against the first world pair, Sanchez / Josemaria.
