Danish Padel Open 2022 complete as qualifying concludes

Qualifying took place over the weekend in the PadelPadel club in Odense to be amongst the chosen few in the inaugural Danish Padel Open 2022 starting Tuesday.

After a weekend of battling from pre-qualifying to the qualifying finals on Monday evening, four pairings made it out alive and will be in the main draw.

The main draw will take place in the Danish capital of Copenhagen.

This is what happened in the four finals of qualifying in the men's bracket!

Botello / Leal VS Vilariño / Mouliaa (6-2 / 6-2)

The four finals started with Uri Botello and Javi Leal as the Spaniards took on their fellow countrymen Ignacio Vilariño and José María Mouliaa.

Botello and Leal are still a young pairing but have impressed already, and they did exactly that again on Monday in Odense.

Taking a double 6-2, they gave Mouliaa and Vilariño few chances to ever get a foothold in the match. A match that lasted just an hour, Botello and Leal will play another qualifying pair that was yet to be decided...

Barahona / Esbri VS Patiniotis / Perino (6-2 / 6-7 / 6-1)

A pair that have made it out of qualifying several times is the one of Javi Barahona and Juanlu Esbri. The young Spaniards took on Aris Patiniotis and Denis Perino to be amongst the final 28 pairs.

Barahona and Esbri started on top, breaking early and late in the first set to take it 6-2, only for the second set to go to a tie-break and end 6-7 and force a decider.

This is when Barahona and Esbri rediscovered their form, again going through their rivals like a whirlwind to end 6-1. They will play Miguel Yanguas and Coki Nieto in the round of 32. 

Marcos / García VS Solano / Fermosell (6-1 / 6-2)

Third on the menu was another all-Spanish bout as Raúl Marcos and Javi García faced José Solano and Jaime Fermosell.

The most one-sided of the four matches, Marcos and García were simply too strong from start to finish at centre court of the PadelPadel club.

Winning 6-1 in the first set, they followed it up with a 6-2 in the second set to knock out Solano and Fermosell in just over an hour.

Marcos and García will play Gonzalo Rubio and Jorge Ruiz in the round of 32.

Tison / Zapata VS Alonso / Alba (6-3 / 6-1)

Finally, the French-Spanish tandem of Benjamin Tison and Teo Zapata played Edu Alonso and Sergio Alba for a place amongst the best.

Tison and Zapata have made several main draws already this season - Tison is the only Frenchman to ever reach the main draw - and looked determined to do so once again.

They won the opening set 6-3 to put themselves in pole position, and went up 3-0 in the second set. They rode this advantage out to the end, winning 6-3 6-1.

Tison/Zapata will play fellow qualifiers Botello and Leal to be in the round of 16.
