From Lugo to the sky

The women's final of the Lugo Open 2018 pitted together the two best pairings on the planet once again: Mapi and Majo Sánchez Alayeto versus Alejandra Salazar and Marta Marrero.

After a very tough week following the loss of ther father, Alejandra Salazar reached the final alongside Marta Marrero against the world number one pairing. The hostilities would come after two games with a break that would mark the rest of the set. Ale and Marta managed to break and pull ahead as they broke down the twins like never before. Another break gave them the set 6-2.

Marrero/Salazar's return to the court was just as overwhelming as in the first set. They broke right at the start to lead 2-0 and things started to look ominous for the Sanchez Alayeto sisters. Juan Alday's pupils found a way to hold onto that advantage until the end. They closed out the match on serve to win 6-3 in what was Alejandra's most special victory. Alejandra Salazar and Marta Marrero are the champions of the Lugo Open 2018.
