WPT Sardegna Open: the Di Nenno / Navarro surprise!

Paquito Navarro and Martin Di Nenno eliminate Juan Lebron and Ale Galan, seed number 1 in the World Padel Tour Sardegna Open.

It is clearly the surprise tournament. Outdoors, in special conditions, this WPT Sardegna Open does not spare the favorites.

Today it is Paquito Navarro and Martin Di Nenno who created the feat by dominating Juan Lebron and Ale Galan in straight sets! The winners of the Cascais Master are down from the quarter-finals!

The Hispano-Argentinian pair was able to adapt much better to the conditions, committing only ten faults in the match, when their opponents made 27!

Not successful at the smash, the numbers 1 often rushed, as on this punto de oro at 4/4 in the second set when Galan tried unsuccessfully to return the ball to his court. Two points earlier, it was Juan Lebron who had offered a “par 4” to Martin Di Nenno… These slow conditions clearly did not favor the Spaniards but we should congratulate Navarro and Di Nenno who showed a great tactical and mental mastery to win the match 6/4 6/4.

They will soon know their opponents in the semi-finals since the second quarter-final of the day will begin, between Chingotto / Tello and Gonzalez / Rico. To follow it, it happens just below:
