What a surprise ! Juan Lebron and Ale Galan get out of the World Padel Tour Danish Open from the quarter-finals!
Version 2.0 of the Maxi Sanchez/Lucho Capra pair holds its benchmark victory! Indeed, against all odds, the Argentinians won against Juan Lebron and Ale Galan in the quarter-finals of the WPT Danish Padel Open.
Already forced into three sets on Thursday against Lucas Bergamini and Victor Ruiz, the number 1s suffered today against a pair that played their best padel this Friday. However, everything had started very well for the players of Mariano Amat, who led 4/1 in the first set. Then the Argentinian machine kicked in and it started hurting number 1s badly.
Rewarded for their selflessness and their very high level of play, Maxi Sanchez and Lucho Capra won 6/4 6/2 and offered themselves a ticket to the semi-finals. They who had only managed to win a set in their first five clashes with Lebron and Galan offer themselves a superb feat!
Surprises also among the ladies, with the elimination of seeds 2, 3 and 4! Impressive yesterday, Paula Josemaria and Ariana Sanchez lost to Aranzazu Osoro and Victoria Iglesias in two sets: 6/4 7/5. Defeats also of Llaguno/Riera against Araujo/Alayeto (6/3 6/4) and of Brea/Icardo against Ortega/Gonzalez (6/3 6/3). Number 1s Salazar and Triay come through after losing the first set to Marrero/Sainz: 6/7 6/2 6/1.
