Internationals stand no chance in Danish Padel Open 2022 qualifying

The women's draw for the Danish Padel Open 2022 has been completed as the qualifying stages came to a conclusion on Monday evening.

Four pairs have emerged from the weekend of action at the PadelPadel club in Odense and will be added to the star-studded main draw, which starts on Tuesday in Copenhagen.

While many international - non-Spanish and Argentinian - were still in it, none of them could make it through. Here is what happened in the four women's finals on Monday!

Ara Martínez and Jimena Velasco were first up, facing Alicia Blanco and Sara Ruiz in a tough match-up at the PadelPadel.

The ranking's slight favourites Martínez and Velasco were just that bit better at the end of the first set, which they took 6-4.

It had broken the resistance slightly for the second set, where it was much more one-sided. Araceli and Jimena were on top from start to finish and expressed this on the scoreboard. They won 6-1 to go through to the main draw, where they meet seven-seed Victoria Iglesias and Aranza Osoro.

Melania Merino and Lorena Alonso were in action next, playing qualifying three-seed Ana Fernández and Arantxa Soriano.

While the match was a levelled one, it would ultimately be decided in straight sets.

Fernández and Soriano punched their ticket to the round of 32 after an hour and a half, winning 6-3 6-4.

They will play Mapi Sánchez Alayeto and Sofia Araújo on Tuesday afternoon in Copenhagen.

The two Martas Marta Barrero and Marta Caparros played two Italians next in Giulia Sussarello and Chiara Pappacena.

A two-hour match, the temporary Italian pairing of Sussarello and Pappacena could not get a set against their Spanish foes. It finished 7-6(6) 6-4 to Barrero and Caparros, who will play Carla Mesa and Claudia Jensen in the round of 32 on Wednesday morning.

Finally, Claudia Fernandez and Julieta Bidahorria faced Carlotta Casali and Patricia Martínez for a place among the 24 pairs in the round of 32.

Fernandez and the Argentinian Bidahorria were much the stronger side from start to finish, despite playing a three-setter earlier on the day against Helena Wyckaert and Nicole Traviesa.

It ended 6-1 6-2, and Fernandez/Bidahorria play wild cards Ida Jarlskog and Åsa Eriksson in the round of 32.
