Paquito and Sanyo are aiming for their sixth final of the season

There was only one place left in the semifinals of the Estrella Damm Alicante Open. The world number two pairing Paquito Navarro and Sanyo Gutiérrez took on the restrengthened Seba Nerone and Álex Ruiz, who were in the quarter finals for the first time in 2017 after beating Lahoz and Lijo in three hours. The first set was very even. Nerone and Ruiz played at a very high level and helf on despite Paquito and Sanyo's continuous attacks. Until the ninth game, when Ramiro Choya's men broke serve to win the first set 6-4.

In the second set, Seba and Alex started off strongly. They broke and demonstrated their power at the net. But Paquito and Sanyo recovered and won three games on the bounce. Nerone and Ruiz never gave up and treid everything to win the set. In the end, however, Paquit and Sanyo won 6-3 to set up another meeting with Mati and Maxi.
