Belasteguín and Coello reign supreme in Miami to make first final as couple

Fernando Belasteguín and Arturo Coello have made their first final as a couple as they beat Federico Chingotto and Juan Tello in the first men's Blockchain.com Miami Padel Open 2022 semi-finals.

For Coello, it will be his first finals appearance ever in World Padel Tour. Not only that, but he has become the youngest player ever to reach a final at just 19 years old.

Bela, the most successful player in WPT history, will dispute his first final since last year's Las Rozas Open.

The match at the Island Gardens centre court started with very high pace, albeit from both sides. The first five games flew by in under 15 minutes.

Then, in a game in which Tello and Chingotto committed three unforced errors on their own service, Bela and Coello took advantage to get the match's first break.

No further break points were had for the remainder of the set, and despite Tello/Chingotto's best efforts, the frame finished 6-3 to the rankings' underdogs.

The Argentinian and longest-standing duo in the men's Circuit Tello and Chingotto tried to fight back to start the second set. With three break points at 1-0, they did not take any of them, and the next game, Bela and Coello crucially did break.

It was a big mental blow but the teenager Coello and the 42-year-old Belasteguín pressed on, breaking again at 3-1. While Tello/Chingotto halved the deficit by breaking back once, they failed to break again to level things up - despite having three break points at 5-3.

Arturo Coello and Fernando Belasteguín are the first men's Miami Padel Open finalists, winning 6-3 6-4 after an hour and 11 minutes.
