Coello becomes youngest man to win WPT Open after Miami glory with Belasteguín

Fernando Belasteguín and Arturo Coello have won their first tournament together as they took down Javi Garrido and Lucas Campagnolo in the Blockchain.com Miami Padel Open 2022 final.

At just 19 years old, this makes Coello the youngest man to win a World Padel Tour Open or Master in what was his first final.

For Belasteguín, the most successful player in WPT history, it was his 63rd tournament win and his first since Valencia in 2021.

The match started with a break and a counterbreak to follow, Coello and Bela striking first but Garrido and Campa finding an answer right away.

At 3-2, however, the seventh seed Bela and Coello again broke, this time without an answer from their opponents. They took the set 6-3.

Campagnolo and Garrido were the story of the tournament, knocking out number ones Juan Lebrón and Alejandra Galán in the round of 16 as well as former number ones Pablo Lima and Maxi Sánchez in the quarter-finals and three-seed Sanyo Gutiérrez/Agustín Tapia in the semi-finals.

In Sunday's final, however, they struggled to reach the same level they were at in previous days. The second set saw them vastly improving, however, as not a single break was made for the first 12 games.

It went to a tie-break, in which Belasteguín's experience shone through. For Campagnolo, Coello and Garrido, it was the first final. Bela ushered Coello through and they took the tie-break 7-6 (3).

This makes Coello the youngest player in the male Circuit to win a tournament at just 19 years old, while Bela showed that at 42, he is still one of the very best.

Arturo Coello and Fernando Belasteguín are your Blockchain.com Miami Padel Open 2022 winners!
