Navarro and Di Nenno mount incredible comeback to best Stupaczuk and Ruiz

Paquito Navarro and Martín Di Nenno have reached the Estrella Damm Alicante Open 2022 final after coming back to beat Franco Stupaczuk and Alejandro Ruiz on Saturday.

The only three-setter of the day, Navarro and Di Nenno were up against it after the first frame, but turned the corner afterwards to make another final.

Like in Vigo two weeks ago, number ones Alejandro Galán and Juan Lebrón await on Sunday at the Centre de Tecnificació Esportiva d'Alacant.

All-out war in Alicante

The opening set would be decided by a single break. Despite several opportunities for both sides, things were still tied at 4-4. Stupa and Ruiz then got the vital break and took the set 4-6.

Di Nenno and Navarro bounced back, taking a 2-0 lead straightaway in the second set, only to be counterbroken right after. Re-taking the lead at 3-2 in the gold point, the number two seed then did hold on to take it 6-3.

Ruiz and Stupaczuk had a chance to break at 0-1 in the third set, but to no avail, and were then broken the game after at 1-1. To make matters worse, the four-time winning pair of Navarro and Di Nenno broke again at 3-1.

It was too much of a lead for Stupa and Alex to recover from, and the match finished 4-6 6-3 6-2 after over two hours.
