They overcame Gemma and Lucia in a rain-affected match

Tenorio and Marrero reach the final in Andorra

The first semifinal of the Vallbanc Andorra Open brought together the number 2 and 3 seeds on centre court. Cata Tenorio - Marta Marrero vs. Gemma Triay - Lucía Sáinz.

In an even match, it was the minor details which decided the outcome. The first set had alternatives and it was Gemma and Lucia who broke first in the fifth game. But Cata and Marta managed to break back on two occasions, the second time being at 5-4 down. Gemma and Lucia lost their chances as a result of their unforced errors and Tenorio and Marrero's competitive edge. The first set was decided in a tiebreak, where Marta Marrero was the defining player on court with her power and quality. The second set seemed to be following a similar pattern until Gemma and Lucia briefly switched off in the fifth game, and Cata and Marta pounced to break. At 4-2 up to Marrero and Tenorio, with Triay and Sainz on serve, the rain started to fall and the match was halted for almost an hour and fifty minutes. It was restarted on court 2 at Principadel. Here, Gemma and Lucia tried everything to stay in the match, and even had three break points with Tenorio and Marrero serving at 5-4. But Juan Alday's players showed their capacity to overcome adversity once again and won 6-4 after taking five points on the bounce, reaching their fourth consecutive final.
