The fourth seeds prevail: Stupa and Cristian are gunning for their first title of the season

The first men's semifinal in Alicante guaranteed excitement and emotion. All tickets were sold ahead of the clash between Mati Díaz - Ale Galán versus Franco Stupaczuk - Cristian Gutiérrez.

The Argentines struck first by breaking and holding to make it 2-0. Diaz and Galan settled after this and won the following two games to level it at 2-2. The pattern continued in the next games with Stupaczuk and Gutierrez making it 4-2. This break was key for them to win the set 6-4.

In the second set, Mati Diaz and Ale Galan came out hungry to make it a set apiece and they held onto their serve in the first few games, unlike in the opening set. These two pairings are striving for major things this season and that was clear to see on court. There was just one blip in Mati and Galan's defence. It occurred in the seventh game and Franco and Cristian pounced to break. This was enough for them to reach the final (6-4). Franco Stupaczuk and Cristian Gutierrez are the first finalists of the Estrella Damm Alicante Open.
