Esbrí and Alonso come back to made Swedish main draw

The Areco Malmö Padel Open 2022 main draw is now complete as qualifying reached its conclusion on Tuesday evening, with youngsters Juanlu Esbrí and Edu Alonso coming back to win their final.

It was one of four exciting finals, several international players still involved, albeit no local Swedish players.

Find out what happened in the match reports below!

Zapata/Sans vs Del Castillo/Benítez

First in action were Tonet Sans and Teo Zapata in their bid against Mario del Castillo and Miguel Benítez.

The new pairing of Zapata and Sans was working well once more, the Spaniards coming out on top against their fellow countrymen 6-4 in the opening set.

Perhaps breaking their rivals' spirit, Sans and Zapata were met with fewer resistance in the second set, breaking twice and winning 6-1 to make the main draw on Wednesday

Toni Bueno and Marc Quílez await in the round of 32 on court 3.

Barahona/Mora vs García/Díaz

Next on the running order were four more Spaniards as Javi Barahona and Javi García took on Pablo García and Juan Martín Díaz.

García and Díaz, another brand-new couple, struggled to find their footing against the two Javis, losing the opening salvo 6-2.

Barahona and García needed one break to win the second and deciding set, taking the match 6-4 to qualify for the main draw.

Five-seed Pablo Lima and Franco Stupaczuk await the qualifiers on Wednesday.

Cepero/Méndez vs Muñoz/Vilariño

Third on the docket were Álvaro Cepero and Rafa Méndez, in action against Jaime Muñoz and Nacho Vilariño.

Another all-Spanish affair, Muñoz and Vilariño were the better duo in the opening set, where they won 3-6.

Cepero and Méndez needed a remedy and they found it, the tandem striking back fiercely in the second set 6-1 and completing the comeback by winning the third frame 6-2.

Salva Oria, Méndez's former partner, and Jorge Ruiz are the opponents in the round of 32.

Alonso/Esbrí vs Moya/Valdés

The best was perhaps saved for last as Edu Alonso and Juanlu Esbrí looked for passage to the main draw against Jesús Moyá and Chilean Javi Valdés.

In three very long and closely contested sets, Moya and Valdés took the first via tie-break 6-7.

Esbrí and Alonso, although they lack experience, showed tremendous resilience to come back in the second set. Deadlocked at 5-5, they came with a break to win 7-5.

That score would be repeated in the third and final set, and after nearly three hours, they completed the comeback to win 6-7 7-5 7-5.
