Diaz and Galan win their first title together

Mati Diaz and Ale Galan reach the summit in Valladolid

The men's final of the Valladolid Open 2018 pitted together Sanyo Gutiérrez - Maxi Sánchez and Matías Díaz - Alejandro Galán.

The firs set was as tight as you'd expect it to be in a final. Maxi and Sanyo saved up to four break points thanks to their experimented and nerveless play throughout the set. Mati and Ale were finally rewarded in their fifth attempt. 50 minutes and ten games had gone by when they managed to break through and win the first set 7-5.

The reaction from the Argentines didn't take long in coming. They needed to show what has taken them this far this season and they started playing like real world number one candidates. Winner after winner saw them take the second set 6-3.

The third start in completely different fashion to the previous two. Diaz and Galan broke at the start and went up 3-0 in the blink of an eye. That was too much of a distance for Maxi and Sanyo to pull back. They fought but no one was going to deny Mati and Ale their first title as a pairing. They saved two break points as they served it out to win 6-3 in over two hours and 15 minutes. A momentous moment for Ale Galan, who won his first professional title. Mati Díaz and Alejandro Galán ,champions of the Valladolid Open 2018
