Padel Magazine - The blows of swords continue to make noise between the best players in the world. Anything can happen on the lands of Granada. Mapi and Majo Sánchez Alayeto have understood and intend to fight to the end to win this coveted spot: The place of number 1 world.
In a few hours, the twins will have to play their best padel to shake the current world No. 1 Carolina Navarro and Cecilia Reiter.
In the semifinals of the WPT of Granada the favorites did not shake.
On the contrary, it was a real demonstration: The "Reinas" were too strong to be disturbed. Lucía Sainz and Marta Ortega tried to do better throughout the game, but there was too much difference in levels between these two pairs. Carol and Ceci were intractable in the first set that they concluded with a severe 6 / 1.
The 2e set was only an illusion, as it seemed that the queens were ahead of its rivals of the day. Despite a more dangerous pair with a defense that was significantly better than the first set, Marta and Lucie lost in the 2e set 6 / 3. Navarro and Reiter compete to win the third title of the season. By winning this WPT, they would ensure almost the top of the ranking.
The other semifinal was even more expeditious since the twins inflicted a correction to Icíar Montes and Alejandra Salazar: 6 / 1 6 / 1.
Thanks to this victory, the sisters keep a hope to return to the 1 numbers worldwide, even if it remains quite unlikely. Much more likely: Finish in the top 3 and thus once again messing up the female rankings.
The finale between the Queens and the twins promises to be thrilling.
