If the favorites have ensured during these round of 1 of the Estrella Damm Open of the World Padel Tour, we will still have some newcomers in 4/XNUMX.

At men's

The expected shock between Maxi Sanchez / Mati Diaz and Javi Rico / Coki Nieto kept all its promises and it was the young Spaniards who created the surprise, emerging victorious in this clash in the snatch: 6/4 4/6 6/4 !

We were also expecting a big match between Silingo / Di Nenno and Tapia / Belasteguin, but like the last time these two teams faced each other, it was Bela and Tapia who took the upper hand in straight sets: 6 / 3 7 / 5.

Ale Galan and Juan Lebron impressed against young Coello / Ramirez. Those looking for a fourth consecutive coronation on the WPT have imposed themselves without trembling: 6/0 6/3.

La small novelty is the presence of Perino / Ruiz in the quarterfinals for their first tournament together. The lucky losers, after having beat their executioners the day before yesterday, quietly dominated Gutierrez / Grabiel today: 6/2 6/3.

The great novelty is the presence of Lorena Rufo and Marta Talavan in the quarterfinals of a World Padel Tour tournament. The players who started in previas, beat another team from the previas today: Barbara Las Heras and Isa Dominguez in a very hot match 3/6 6/4 6/3.

Unfortunately for all the French supporters, Alix Collombon and Nicole Traviesa lost to Bea Gonzalez and Marta Ortega. But the Franco-Spanish pair did very well against the number 3 seed. A defeat 7 / 5 6 / 3 full of hope.

Impressive yesterday against Raquel Piltcher and Lorena Alonso (6/1 6/0), Lucia Martinez and Anna Fernandez de Osso did not create the feat against the seed number 2 Marta Marrero and Paula Josemaria (6/3 6/3).

The other favorites also got the job done today, winning all in straight sets.
