The semi-finals were reached in Vigo and Alicante, but on both occasions, they were bested in three sets by Paquito Navarro and Martín Di Nenno.Lima started 2022 with another former number one in Maxi Sánchez. Despite having 71 wins between them in the World Padel Tour era, more than any other active pairing, the South Americans stranded in the quarter-finals at all four events they played, never able to take the next step.A three-time number one, Lima is one of the most successful players of all time. In Stupaczuk, he unquestionably joins one of the most talented young players in the Circuit in a potentially deadly cocktail.With close to a month until the next Open in Brussels, both Stupaczuk and Lima decided it was an opportune moment to switch partners and join forces.
