It was quarter finals day on Ocean Drive with an absolute cracker of match to kick off the day, Maxi Sánchez and Mati Díaz versus Aday Santana and Álvaro Cepero.

32 degrees on court level things out between any two pairings and that's exactly what happened in this encounter which alternated breaks of serve. Mati and Maxi made their move at 4-2 and held on to take the first set 6-4.

Aday and Cepero took little time to react as they imposed their style of play at the start of the second set. They broke serve in the first game of the second set and took a 3-0 lead. They took care of that advantage and won the second set 6-3.

This proved to be a blow for the number 3 pairing in the World Padel Tour rankings. The third set started in the same way as the second. Alvaro Cepero hunted down every ball and Santana showcased his huge shots to take a two break lead over Mati/Maxi and leave the score at 4-1. The Argentines got a break back to keep the match alive, but the comeback woudn't be competed. By then Cepero was almost unstoppable and he didn't let the chance of reaching a semifinal slip away from him. In the end it was 6-3: Aday Santana and Alvaro Cepero, first semifinalists of the Miami Padel Masters.
