The Reebok Sports Club La Finca Challenger selects its quarter finalists

After a week of pure spectacle in Monte-Carlo, the world of padel has moved on to the Reebok Sports Club La Finca, where the Challenger has got off to an exciting start with a number of the best pairings from the World Padel Tour taking part. The qualifying rounds and last 32 gave way to the crucial round of sixteen, where the seeds came into contention.

The last sixteen kicked off with an early win for Aris Patinoitis and Diego Ramos  against Germán Tamame and André Britos in an even match that went to three sets and ended 6-4 / 6-7 / 6-3. The following pairing to advance to the quarter finals were Pablo Lijó and Jordi Muñoz Baixas, who turned around a one set deficit to knock out Matías Nicoletti  and Gerard Company with a 6-7 / 6-2 / 6-0 scoreline.

The afternoon got underway with the qualification of Maty Marina and Gonzalo Rubio against Cristian Germán and Ernesto Moreno by 7-6 /6-2. Soon afterwards Pedro Alonso-Martínez and Javier Ruiz joined them after taking a convincing 6-1 / 6-3 win against Andoni Bardasco and Diogo Rocha.

Meanwhile, spectators continued to flock into the Reebok Sports Club La Finca to enjoy the action. Big names such as Mati Diaz, Paquito Navarro or Alejandra Salazar watched Javier Concepción and Alejandro Ruiz Granados get the better of Raúl Marcos and Raúl Díaz by 7-6 / 7-6. The first big favourites to appear on court were Godo Díaz and Lucho Capra, one of the most in form partnerships in Monte-Carlo, lived up to expectations and defeated Javier Limones and Víctor Ruiz  6-4 / 6-2.

Fernando Poggi and Álvaro Cepero didn't disappoint either as they won 6-2 / 6-2 against Ignacio Gadea and Antonio Luque.
