Triay and Salazar win 20th straight game to reach Cordoba Open final

Number one pair Alejandra Salazar and Gemma Triay have become the second pair in World Padel Tour history to win 20 straight games as they beat Aranzazu Osoro and Victoria Iglesias convincingly on Saturday to make the Cordoba Open final.

After both pairs got pushed to three sets in the quarter-finals, it was the underdogs Osoro and Iglesias who surprised early as they broke in the very first game. Perhaps waking up the beast inside of the number ones, they came out of the short break on a mission. They counter-broke, held serve, and did not drop a single game for the rest of the set. It finished 6-1 to Triay and Salazar.

Form of their lives

It looked to be more of the same in the second set, with the Spanish tandem breaking immediately and getting a 2-0 lead. However, after winning a crucial gold point, Iglesias and Osoro held serve for the first time all day and broke back straight after to draw level at 2-2.

While momentum swung back to the seventh seed momentarily, Salazar and Triay were in no mood to hang around. In the ninth game, they broke and saw out the rest of the match. After an hour and 16 minutes, the second pair in the Cordoba Open final will be Gemma Triay and Alejandra Salazar.

With Ale, I think we’re combining very well. Yes, I’m pretty sure this is the best form I’ve been in, and I want to keep enjoying it, and play another final tomorrow.
