The elders are resisting in Sweden. Indeed, Miguel Lamperti, 44 years old, and Juan Martin Diaz, 48 years old in two weeks, almost beat Sanyo and Agustin Gutiérrez!
Clearly, Sanyo and his nephew are suffering in this Malmö Open. After having to battle for three hours to eliminate Ramiro Moyano and Francisco Gil in the first round, the Argentines also had to put up a big fight this Thursday to eliminate the legends Lamperti and Diaz.
While they thought they had done the hardest part by coming back to the score after losing the first set in the tie-break, those who form the 8th seed had to draw on their resources to get by against two players who despite their age showed themselves to be very fit.
The favorites end up winning 6/7 6/4 7/5 and qualify for the quarter-finals. Tomorrow they will meet the winners of the match between Coello / Tapia (TS1) and Cardona / Ruiz.
Lamperti and Diaz may have a hint of disappointment this Thursday evening, having come so close to playing a first quarter-final together…
