Surprise semifinals at the Reebok Sports Club La Finca Challenger

The 2016 Reebok Sports Club La Finca Challenger enters its final straight after Friday's quarter finals. Four pairings will play on Saturday for a place in the final of a Challenger that feels like an Open.

The first pairing to reach the final four were Pablo Lijó and Jordi Muñoz Baixas, who confirmed the good sensations they felt in recent tournaments with a 6-2, 6-4 win against Maty Marina and Gonzalo Rubio. Soon after came the big surprise of the day as Javier Concepción and Alejandro Ruiz Granados took out the number one seeds, Fernando Poggi and Álvaro Cepero 6-3, 7-6.

One of the strongest pairings at the event, Godo Díaz and Lucho Capra, got through a very tough battle after defeating Aris Patinoitis and Diego Ramos 7-6, 7-5. The final pairing to book their tickets in the final four were Borja Yribarren and Juan Manuel Vázquez, who took a 6-3, 6-2 win against Pedro Alonso-Martínez and Javier Ruiz.

 

Lucho Capra and Godo Diaz will face Javier Concepcion and Alejandro Ruiz Granados in the semifinals at 18:00, while Pablo Lijo and Jordi Muñoz will meet Borja Yribarren and Juan Manuel Vazquez at 21:00.

The final will take place on Sunday at 19:00, after a mixed exhibition match between Alejandra Salazar and Nuria Rodriguez on one side of the court and Mati Diaz and Maxi Sanchez on the other.
