Carolina Navarro and Cecilia Reiter were up against Marta Ortega and Ariana Sánchez for a place in the semifinals of the Vallbanc Andorra La Vella Open 2018. The first set of this vibrant clash was tremendously tight. Sanchez and Ortega were leading the attacks but they were up against the experience and quality of Reiter and Navarro. The veteranos made the most of their one chance to break and that was that. They were up 6-3. The match followed a similar pattern in the second set, with Marta and Ari trying to take the initiative and Carol and Ceci waiting for their moment to pounce. And that moment came half way through the set again, when the magic touch of Carolina Navarro led to break. They saw it out on serve and won 6-4 to reach their first semifinals in over a year and a half.
