Marching on to the last 16 in Seville

An exciting day of padel in Seville

Marching on to the last 16 in Seville

Allemandi-Lebrón  6-2/6-3 Cepero-Santana

The afternoon session began on centre court with Álvaro Cepero - Aday Santana vs. Adrián Allemandi - Juan Lebrón.

The Spanish-Argentine pairing is gelling together better with every tournament and proving it on court. In their first match of the Sevilla Open they were up against a tough pairing in Horacio Alvarez Clementi's pupils. However, Cepero and Santana suffered tremendously to stay in the match. Allemandi and Lebron advanced in two clear sets by 6-2 / 6-3 knocking out the number 8 pairing in the WPT rankings to reach the last sixteen.

Gadea-Tamame  6-3/6-4  Jordi Muñoz-Víctor Ruiz

At the same time on court two, Jordi Muñoz and Víctor Ruiz took on Ignacio G. Gadea and Germán Tamame.

Tamame and Gadea continued with their progress as a pairing. They took on two experienced and competitive players who have joined forces to find the results that have been slipping away from them. Jordi Muñoz and Victor Ruiz showed their potential in an even and entertaining match, but the win went to Tamame and Gadea, who were more effective in key moments. They won in two sets, 6-3 / 6-4 to reach the last sixteen.

Stupaczuk-Gutiérrez  6-4/6-4 Diestro-Piñeiro

The second match on centre court at the Pabellon San Pablo brought together Franco Stupaczuk - Cristian Gutiérrez and Martín Sánchez Piñeiro - José Antonio García Diestro.

The number 5 seeds struggled to translate their supposed superiority onto the court. Diestro and Piñeiro worked hard and surprised their opponents early on by taking a 3-1 lead and coming within a point of leading 4-1. They didn't manage to convert and that brought Stupa ad Cristian back into the match. They broke back to make it 3-3 and then broke again to win the first set 6-4.

The second set started with the same inertia as the end of the first set. Pozzioni's players were in irresistible form and went 5-2 up, with a chance to win the match on serve. But Diestro and Piñeiro don't give up easily and  they quickly got back to 5-4, making the champions in Mijas and Gran Canaria work hard to win 6-4. Stupa and Cristian will be in the last sixteen.

Alonso-Patiniotis  6-0/6-0 Di Nenno-Restivo

While there was an exciting clash on centre court, it was quite the opposite on court two, where Peter Alonso and Aris Patiniotis took on Martín Dinneno and Juan Manuel Restivo.

The Argentine pairing was running on empty after having got through five rounds since Sunday to reach the main draw. Di Nenno and Restivo made a noteworthy effort but they quite simply had no response for Peter Alonso and Aris Patiniotis near perfect performance. The pairing from Mar de Plata and Madrid qualified in just 50 minutes without dropping a single game.

Moyano-Grabiel  6-3/6-1 Poggi-Rubio

Rouding off the action on centre court was Ramiro Moyano/Maxi Grabiel vs Fernando Poggi/Gonzalo Rubio.

There was an exchange of breaks in a nervy start to the match up until 3-3. From then on, the duo from Mar de Plata turned it up a notch to win the first set 6-3.

Ramiro Moyano and Maxi Grabiel never looked back. Poggi and Rubio tried everything but couldn't find a way back in as their opponents raced away to win 6-1. Grabiel and Moyano are in the last 16 in Seville.

Chingotto-Tello  3-6/6-4/6-4 Marina-Concepción

The final match of the last 32 was the longest of the day. The only one to go to three sets, which saw Juan Tello and Fede Chingotto take on Mati Marina and Javier Concepción.

Two pairings on the up. Two pairings going through a sweet patch. Marina and Concepcion recently won the Helsingborg Challenger, while Tello and Chingotto have just reached their second semifinals of the season. Everything was set for an intense duel. Gato Malacalza's men took the first set 6-3 in just over 35 minutes. The Argentines reacted immediately, breaking right at the start of the second set to hold a decisive advantage that would make it one set all (6-4). The final blow came from the Argentine pairing, that was boosted by that comeback. Another 6-4 ended the match and left Tello and Chingotto in the last sixteen.
