Gutiérrez and Tapia strike Swedish gold as they become Malmö Padel Open winners

Daniel Sanyo Gutiérrez and Agustín Tapia have claimed their first tournament as a pairing as the Argentinians beat in-form Martín di Nenno and Paquito Navarro to become the Areco Malmö Padel Open winners of 2021.

In only their third tournament since joining forces, the third seed swept Di Nenno and Navarro in the second set in a match lasting around an hour and a half.

For Gutiérrez, it was his fourth tournament win of 2021, winning his previous three with Fernando Belasteguín, and his 34th in World Padel Tour trophy in total.

Only Bela and Pablo Lima, with 62 and 49 each respectively, have more. Tapia now has three titles in 2021, winning his previous two with the Brazilian Lima.

Unlikely Malmö Padel Open winners

With a filled out Malmö Arena as the venue, Di Nenno and Navarro were attacking. They twice took a break's advantage but Sanyo and Tapia twice came back. Only taking the lead for the first time in the match at 6-5, they broke serve to come back and make it 7-5.

The second set was closer than the scoreline may suggest. With four of the six games going to a Gold Point, Gutiérrez and Tapia won all of them, not giving Navarro and Di Nenno a single game.

They completed the sweep to win their first final in what was only their third tournament as a duo.
