It’s a big blow that has just fallen on the Diestro/Leal pair, forced to retire during the first round at Mexican OpenFacing Coki Nieto and Jon Sanz. This package is doubly difficult to digest for José Diestro and Javi Leal, because the stakes of this match were crucial in the race for the Master Final.

The suspense will not last long in this dangerous match...

The game has only just begun in Mexico, both teams are tied, 1-1. And then everything collapses Javi Leal. As he tries to retrieve a ball, his ankle twists. Unable to continue, the powerful players on the left limp off the track and is obliged to to give up. His participation in the Milan P1 is uncertain.

The other hard blow is for his teammate, José Diestro. He who fought for the number 16 place in the Race, face Coki Nieto, has just seen his hopes disappear. He should become the first substitute at the Master Final. His only hope of playing for Barcelona is that one of the 16 players ahead of him withdrew.

For its part, Coki Nieto should reach the Master Final except in exceptional cases. Indeed, Nieto will not participate in the Masters if:

  • Gonzalo Rubio reached the final.
  • Capra, Fernandez, Campagnolo, Augsburger or Gutiérrez is champion in Mexico.
