The second match of the morning on centre court brought together two classic pairings aiming to make the semifinals of the Cervezas Victoria Mijas Open 2018.
Marta Marrero and Alejandra Salazar faced Carolina Navarro and Cecilia Reiter. Marrero and Salazar went a break up at the start and Reiter and Navarro had their chances to break back in the third game but didn't take it. Another break in the fourth left Manu Martin's players in a very strong position to win the set, which they eventually took 6-0 in 50 minutes. Carol and Ceci got their first game in the second set, which was a slight load off their shoulders, but they were being punished again for their unforced errors and saw themselves 4-1 down. But Reiter and Navarro are nothing if they're not fighters and they got themselves back into contention but fell just short at 6-4 after an hour and 35 minutes.
