The number 2 seeded couple of the tournament had a great debut in the island against Gonzalo Godo Díaz and Luciano Capra. The first set was very equal in the scoreboard although Paquito and Sanyo had more break options to their rivals serve. The definitive break came in the 5-4 and they could secure the set. In the secondNavarro-Gutiérrez went a step forward and managed to win an early break which was decisive. With a new 6-4 the Valencia champions reached the quarterfinals again.

In the second, Ernesto and Pedro stood up firmly with the serve but with 2-1 in the scoreboard Miguel and Juani broke their serve and with the advantage the number 4 seeded couple didn't miss.


Juan Martín Díaz and Cristian Gutiérrez had a more difficult victory against the number 16 seeded couple, Jaime Bergareche and Martín Sánchez Piñeiro.


Juan Martín and Cristian began the first set firmly and went 4-1 in the scoreboard. When it looked like they will win the set quickly, the players from Bilbao and Galicia won a break and equalled the match. So the tiebreak had to decide. There the number 5 seeded didn't miss their chance.


In the second Juan and Cristian won a quick break to step ahead. They recovered the order on the court and with a 6-2 they wont miss their date with the quarterfinals.
