The quarter-finals of this WPT Mexico Open have delivered their verdict and one thing is certain: few of us would have bet on these posters for the last four. It must be said that the table opened up a little with the abandonment of the pair in current form: Juan LeBron and Alejandro Galan.
This absence, due to Juan LeBron's personal reasons, benefits the pairs Coello/Tapia and Stupaczuk/Di Nenno. Especially since the war for first place continues to rage between these two teams.
But in this last Open of the year, it's not just the big names who shine. Youth responded and that is why we find Libaak/Augsburger and Arroyo/Alonso in the last four in Mexico.
Coello/Tapia – Arroyo/Alonso
Everything seems to be going well for the world number 1s in this Mexico Open. Since the start of the tournament, the explosive Agustín and Arturo have been playing. Two victories in two short sets, the crazy smashers are honoring their leadership position for the moment. It must be said that there is a lot to play for. If Coello and Tapia win their semi-final, then they would – finally – be assured of finishing the year at the top of the rankings. World Padel Tour.
Facing them, one of the surprise pairs of the tournament, young people Alejandro Arroyo and Eduardo Alonso. These two young players have impressed since the start of the competition. First by eliminating Lucho Capra and Alex Chozas, then leaving the two mountains Alex Ruiz and Juan Tello. And in the quarter, they offer the new association, Momo Gonzalez and Javi Garrido.
A match that promises to be interesting, although appearing a little unbalanced on paper. But be careful, we know that players are starting to find solutions to Arturo Coello and Agustín Tapia. And given what they have shown since the start of the tournament, Alejandro Arroyo and Eduardo Alonso can disrupt the world number 1s.
Libaak/Augsburger – Stupaczuk/Di Nenno
What a pleasure to see again Tino Libaak and Leo Augsburger at this level. The two players, who had reached the final in La Rioja at the start of the year, are back in the last square of a World Padel Tour. The Argentinians caused a sensation on their way: Gil and Moyano in the first round, Navarro and Chingotto in eighths and Ruiz and Bergamini during the quarter-finals.
On their side, Martin Di Nenno and Franco Stupaczuk continue their walk in the park in this Mexico Open. And it must be said that the superpibes must play their best padel in this tournament if they want to continue hoping to reach first place in the world. And for now, no missteps for Martin and Franco.
Replay of the final in Argentina in this meeting. For Franco and Martin, reaching the final is imperative if they want to stay in the race for first place. And for the young Tino and Léo, it's a chance to shine one last time this year on the circuit. World Padel Tour.
It was his brother who one day told him to accompany him on a track. padel, since then, Gwenaëlle has never left the court. Except when it comes to going to watch the broadcast of Padel Magazine, World Padel Tour… or Premier Padel…or the French Championships. In short, she is a fan of this sport.
