Padel Magazine - It's a finale that certainly won't go down in the anal.
Not only, This Open has not been spoiled by the weather, but in addition we have two injuries that do not reassure us before the Masters ...
In the final of the Villa Carlos Paz International Open on the outskirts of Cordoba in Argentina, Juani Mieres and Pablo Lima were opposed to Matías Díaz and Cristian Gutierrez.
Unfortunately, the suspense disappeared shortly before the match, we learned the injury of Cristian in the abdominals.
It is clear that the match was not really a match of standing in sight of the two famous pairs on this central court.
First, the match started late because the final was about to be canceled.
Finally, the final started, and it was believed a miracle when Matias and Cristian took the first set 7 / 6. But we quickly realized that a package was on the horizon. Faced with world numbers two, the slightest defect is hidden. And the current world 4 numbers had understood that, since they lost two 6 / 1 and 6 / 2 sets, then threw in the towel. Obviously it was the only decision possible.
One question though: Should he really make these two sets in the final?
Indeed, Cristian took a risk of playing this final when he knew he was injured. He could compromise as Fernando Belasteguin his participation in Masters ...
Reassure us, we are told that the injuries are benign ... Remember that Cristian drags this injury for many weeks. Two weeks of rest will not be the least.
After the withdrawal of his rivals, Juani and Pablo win a fourth title this season, thus getting slightly closer to Juan Martín Díaz and Fernando Belasteguin in the WPT ranking.
The next event is the Masters which will be held from 18 to 22 December in Madrid. This is THE tournament not to be missed since it will bring together the eight best pairs in the world.
Hope our champions are all operational by the Masters ...
