Moyano/Capra vs Cepero/DíazThe first match on centre court at the Valladolid Open 2018 brought together two spectacular pairings. Álvaro Cepero - Godo Díaz vs Lucho Capra - Ramiro Moyano. A break in the eighth game was enough for the Argentines to win the first set 6-3. They were even more convincing in the second set, which they won 6-1 to reach the quarter finals for the second consecutive tournament (the third time this season).Piñeiro/Lahoz vs Belluati/LebrónThis match started with an early break for Piñeiro and Lahoz which Lebrón and Belluati recovered from to roce a tiebreak and win 7-6. The second set was just as tight and also went the distance, this time with Piñeiro and Lahoz winning 7-6. The match ended up going to Lebron and Belluati with a 6-4 scoreline in the third set.Díaz/Navarro vs Méndez/RamosThis match had more ups and downs than was perhaps predicted. Diego Ramos and Rafa Mendez broke Paquito and Juan Martin to control the first set, which they won 6-4. Paquito and Juan Martin had their backs against the wall in the second set, which they claimed right at the death 7-6. And in the third match, again it was a tiebreak which would decide the victor. Paquito Navarro and Juan Martin Diaz survived and live to fight another day.Ruiz/Rico vs Galán/DíazThe first session ended on centre court with Víctor Ruiz - José Rico vs Alejandro Galán - Matías Díaz. Mariano Amat's players took the first set 6-4. The start of the second set was a carbon copy of the first, with Diaz and Galan controlling and going 5-4 up on serve. They closed out the match with their serve to win 6-4 in an hour and 35 minutes.
