Both pairings held their serves to love but Matias and Alejandro made the most of various mistakes from their opponents to get the only break that would make the difference.After that 6-4 scoreline in the first set, Ruiz-Marina started the second with a lot of confidence, and broke their opponents' first service.But Gonzalo and Javier didn't throw in the towel and continued to move around the court quickly. They were rewarded for their effort and levelled the set at 4-4. The winners in Lisbon then went on a negative run. The first-time finalists, on the other hand, broke the Malagueño's serve at 5-4.In the third set, the high temperatures and fatigue started to take their toll. And in no time, almost as quickly as their shots, the Andalusians took a 4-1 lead.Matias Marina was struggling in the heat and despite his partner's efforts, who tried to take up more of the court, the Andalusian duo had the chance to serve out the match at 5-4.Gonzalo and Javier almost crumbled under the pressure, as they needed four match points to win their first World Padel Tour title.The Andalusians won the Joma Barcelona Challenger and surprised everyone, even themselves.The Catalan Virgin attended their prayers. A first title which has been the result of a week of brilliant performances.Matias Marina and Alejandro Ruiz don't leave with good sensatons after not being able to win their second title, but they're eager to move on to the Estrella Damm Valladolid Open. A stage that holds good memories for them. Last year they reached their first semifinals in an Open, defeating Juan Martin Diaz and Juani Mieres en route.
