3000 fans witnessed the clash between Paquito Navarro - Juan Martín Díaz and Juani Mieres - Miguel Lamperti live in the semifinals of the Caja Rural Jaén Open. The fans expected a high quality match and they couldn't have been happier with the outcome. Mieres was electric, Lamperti exquisite, Juan Martin Diaz monumental and Navarro very, very motivated. With that panorama, only a tiebreak could decide who would win the first set. And it was Paquito and Juan Martin who claimed it.
In the second set, Diaz and Navarro were still on fire. Juan blocked every attempt from Mieres at the net and Paquito pounced on every short ball. Tactically, they were worlds apart. So much so, that they had the chance to serve it out at 5-2 and, despite Mieres and Lamperti's last ditch efforts, they closed the deal and will feature in their second final on the bounce.
