Qualifying ends and the draw is completed at the Estrella Damm Zaragoza Open

Four pairings advance from qualifying into the main draw

Qualifying ends and the draw is completed at the Estrella Damm Zaragoza Open

The final round of qualifying took place at Pádel Plaza this afternoon. Four matches, four finals with the same prize for the winners: a place in the main draw of the Estrella Damm Zaragoza Open 2018. The battle to be among the best 32 pairings took place once again in front of a packed stadium.

José Rico and Víctor Ruiz continue on the up after having reached the quarter finals at the last Open and having won the Spanish National Championships last Sunday. This time they reached the main draw by winning 7-6 / 6-3 against Rubén Rivera and Gerard Company, who are back together after not playing alongside each other at the Alicante Open.

Francisco "Chico" Gomes and Ernesto Moreno played out a brutal three setter against Sergio Icardo and Javier Redondo. After Gomes and Moreno won the first set 7-6, Icardo and Redondo levelled it up by winning the second 6-4. In the third, there was only a break between the two once again, and the Spanish/Brazilian pairing won 6-4 in a match that took over two and a half hours.

There was alto an all-out tussle between Juan Manuel Vázquez - Cristian Germán Gutiérrez and Matías Nicoletti - Toni BuenoBueno and Nicoletti ended up claiming a two-hour clash 7-6 / 7-6.

The last place in the main draw went to the winner of Javier Garrido - Gonzalo Rubio vs Juan Manuel Restivo - Martín di Nenno. Di Nenno and Restivo won the first set comfortably 6-2 and were made to fight a little bit more for the second, which they took 7-5.

With Fernando Belasteguin pulling out of the tournament at the eleventh hour, another pairing would receive a lucky loser into the main draw, and that pairing was Ruben Rivera and Gerard Company, who will get another shot at the Estrella Damm Zaragoza Open 2018.
