Gemma Triay closed the year in a big way The time had come to decide who would win the first international Challenger of the season. The Lisbon Challenger 2017 brought together two prestigious and experienced pairings. Gonzalo "Godo" Díaz and Luciano Capra against Sebastián Nerone and Alejandro Ruíz. Both pairings overcame mammoth encounters in the semifinals, needing three sets to reach the final.Diaz and Capra got off to a brilliant start, breaking Ruiz and Nerone in the third game and dominating the tempo of the match. While Godo showcased his classy touch, Capra seemed to reach every ball and was in punishing mood at the net. They ended up taking the first set 6-4 in under 38 minutes.The Spanish/Argentine duo was aware of the price they'd paid for those few unforced errors in the first set and came out looking to give Diaz and Capra more of a fight. But the Argentines were as solid as ever and no one managed a break after the first 8 games of the set. Diaz and Capra grabbed that all important break in the ninth game to lead 5-4 and serve for the match. They made the most of the chance and took the set 6-4 to win the match and the title in an hour and 19 minutes. A well deserved trophy for Diaz and Capra who brought out their best version in the Portuguese capital.The next stop is the Estrella Damm Barcelona Master.
