Bea and Lucía, finalists at the Estrella Damm Barcelona Master

Bea Gonzalez and Lucia Sainz played Majo and Mapi Sanchez Alayeto in the second women's semifinal at the Barcelona Master 2021.

Both pairs had overcome tough tests in the previous round. Third seeds Gonzalez and Sainz had beaten Delfi Brea and Tamara Icardo, while the Alayeto twins had defeated the world's number two pair, Ari Sanchez and Paula Josemaria.

The first break points came in game four, Bea Gonzalez serving, and the Sanchez Alayeto twins converted the second of them to take a 3-1 lead. The twins had started superbly well - but their progress was abruptly halted when Majo Sanchez Alayeto appeared to pick up a calf muscle injury which severely inhibited her movement.

She was able to receive medical treatment two games later, and did her best to carry on, but at 4-3 up in set one, Mapi and Majo were forced to withdraw through injury.

A semifinal win in 44 minutes for Bea Gonzalez and Lucia Sainz, finalists at the Barcelona Master.
