Cristian Gutiérrez and Franco Stupaczuk show their class against Lebrón and Belluati

Centre court at the Pedro Ferrandiz was ready to stage the quarter finals. The number four seeds, Cristian Gutiérrez and Franco Stupaczuk faced the hottest pairing at the moment, Juan Lebrón and Juan Cruz Belluati. The two pairings took each other on with their best weapons and every break was responded to by another break. The set was decided by a tiebreak in which Cristian and Stupa were much more effective and made few unforced errors. Carlos Pozzoni's men took the set 7-6 after an hour and twenty minutes.

It was more of the same in the second set. Neither pairing managed to impose themselves but Stupa and Cristian slowly set the tempo they were looking for. An explosive brand of padel with close control hurt their opponents and saw them strike a decisive blow in the seventh game. A break they consolidated in the eighth game to reach the semifinals of the 2018 Estrella Damm Alicante Open  after winning 6-3 in an hour and 45 minutes. The number 4 pairing is back in the semi finals again.
