The first pairings make the last sixteen in the morning session

Díaz/Galán and Lamperti/Mieres grab easy wins

The first pairings make the last sixteen in the morning session

CENTRE COURT

The first Open of the season got underway with two matches at the same time being played at the Pedro Ferrándiz centre. The Estrella Damm Alicante Open Trofeo Alicante Sports Destination got going with one of the most exciting matches of the day: Aday Santana Nacho Gadea vs Godo Díaz - Álvaro Cepero. After a first set with constant breaks, Cepero and Diaz struck first in the tiebreak. The second set followed a similar pattern. The number 8 pairing on the World Padel Tour took a 3-0 lead and closed out the match at 6-3.

COURT 2

Meanwhile, on court two Javi Ruiz and Uri Botello sailed through to the last sixteen after winning 6-3 / 6-1 against  Javier Escalante and Jordi Muñoz.

CENTRE COURT

Back to centre court for one of the revelations from the recent Master in Badalona: Mati Díaz and Ale Galán took on Adrián Blanco and Borja Yribarren. The players coached by Mariano Amat broke twice in the opening set and won 6-2 in just over half an hour. They broke their opponents early in the second set to lead 3-1. The Galicians tried to react but Mati and Galan were well on their way to the second round. 6-3 was the score to end the match.

COURT 2

The most even match of the morning took place on court two. One of the surprises of the  Estrella Damm Catalunya Master, the Brazilians Lucas Bergamini and Lucas Campagnolo took on José Rico and Víctor Ruiz. Rico and Ruiz, who got through qualifying, prevailed in three fascinating sets to win 4-6 / 6-3 / 6-2.

CENTRE COURT

The morning session on centre court ended with an uneven encounter. Juani Mieres and Miguel Lamperti were in no mood for surprises against Lucas da Cunha and Javier Martínez. The latter had got through qualifying but came up against one of the best pairings in the world. Mieres and Lamperti won the first set 6-1 in under half an hour. They patiently got the job done in the second too, winning 6-2 to reach the last sixteen.

COURT 2

A three hour thriller ended the morning's action. Agustín Gómez Silingo, lining up alongside Gerard Company in the absence of Alex Ruiz, took on Adrián Allemandi and Fede Quiles. After three extremely long sets, which included Quiles receiving stitches on his head, Silingo/Company won 6-3/3-6/6-3.
