The semifinals of the Miami Padel Masters took place at the beautiful Lummus Park. Paquito and Sanyo against Santana and Cepero for a place in the final.

The number two pairing on the World Padel Tour got off to a stronger start with two consecutive breaks which would have ended the set but the Spanish pairing recovered one of the breaks to keep their hopes alive. It was too little too late however, and Horacio Álvarez Clementi's players couldn't halt Paquito and Sanyo, who took the first set 6-2.

Cepero and Santana aren't in the semifinals by chance and they proved that in the second set. The number two seeds had to work hard to knock them out. They got an early break and held onto it until the eighth game. But Ramiro Choya's pupils responded and took the set into a tiebreak. Here it all seemed to be going in favour of Paquito and Sanyo but that's when the Spanish duo brought out everything they had within and saved four match points en route to making it one set all.

In the third and final set Cepero and Santana took their foot off the accelerator and Paquito Navarro and Sanyo Gutierrez opened up an almost definitive 4-0 lead. But nothing is definitive when these two players are involved. They fought back to 5-4 but that's when the Andalusian and the Argentine showed their mettle. Paquito and Sanyo closed out the match and await their opponents in the final of the Miami Padel Masters.
