Sainz and Triay, a hurricane that sweeps into the semis

The number two seeds, Gemma Triay and Lucía Sainzwere up against another surprise package in this round, Carla Mesa and Lucía Martínez.

In their third tournament since getting back together, Mesa and Martinez had the difficult task of taking on one of the best pairings in the world. The favourites, Sainz and Triay didn't take long in stamping their authority, with a break in the opening game on Lucia Martinez's serve. With the quick surface this year at the Valladolid Openthe duo coached by Pablo Aymá were making the most of their powerful strokes to dominate proceedings. Sainz and Triay struck another blow with a break in the seventh game which put them 5-2 up and they closed the set out immediately at 6-2. In the second set, Mesa and Martinez couldn't find the recipe to stop the winningest pairing so far this season. Once again the set started with a break. Sainz and Triay broke once more in the third game and seemed eager to put the match to bed as quickly as possible. Martinez and Mesa didn't throw in the towel and got one of the two breaks back in the fourth game to make it 3-1. But their hopes were short-lived, as Gemma and Lucia broke right back and went on to win every remaining game to win 6-1 in under an hour.
