Coello's promising Estrella Damm Master Final debut The Príncipe Felipe was ready for the men's quarter finals of the Estrella Damm Zaragoza Open. The first clash of the round was between Alejandro Ruíz - Sebastián Nerone and Cristian Gutiérrez - Franco Stupaczuk. A very even battle took place between two pairings looking to impose their styles of play. Nerone and Ruiz broke in the eighth game thanks to some stellar defending, which helped them make the most of the few unforced errors their opponents made. Rodrigo Ovide's men were 5-3 up on serve to close out the first set, and they even had a set point, but an electric Franco Stupaczuk appeared to break back and level things out again. After making it 6-5, Cristian and Stupa had five set points on return but Nerone and Ruiz found a way out. The first set went to a tiebreak and that's where Alex Ruiz was decisive with some inspired attacking play to win the first set 7-6.In the second set, Nerone and Ruiz tried to maintain that solidity to reach the semifinals. Cristian and Stupa's attempts fell short time and time again against the best version of Nerone and Ruiz we've witnessed this season. In the seventh game, Rodrigo Ovide's pupils had two break points at 3-3. They finally claimed it at the fourth attempt to lead 4-3. The alarm bells went off for the number four seeds, who still couldn't find a solution to the problem. But they still found a way to hold on at 5-4 and 6-5 on return to force another tiebreaker. And this one ended just like the first one, with Nerone and Ruiz winning 7-6 and reaching their first semifinals of the year.
