Uri Botello and Javier Ruiz conquer their second title of the season in Melilla

The last match on centre court at the Pabellón Javier Imbroda would crown the champions of the Melilla Challenger 2018A clash between Agustín Gómez Silingo - Alejandro Ruiz and Uri Botello - Javier Ruizwho have reached the final of every Challenger so far this season. Both pairings were on the back of a three-set semifinal and in the opening games Ruiz-Silingo were causing problems for Ruiz-Botello on serve and they'd racked up four break point opportunities before the third game ended. However, the players coached by Rodrigo Ovide didn't convert any. Alex Ruiz and Silingo found their reward in the fifth game when they broke to go 3-2 up. Botello and Ruiz didn't take long in breaking back in the sixth game, as Botello worked as hard as always in defence and Javi Ruiz was allowed the freedom to attack. The Spanish pairing ended the set strongly and stole the set on return in the tenth game to win 6-4 after an intense hour of play. They'd found the right tempo and the path to victory. They broke in the sixth game of the second set and looked certain to be on their way to victory but an excellent Alex Ruiz was instrumental in breaking back in the seventh game. Just as the set was heading into a tiebreak, Botello and Ruiz broke in sensational fashion to win 7-5 and claim their second title of the season. Two titles and a final is their return this season on the Challenger tour. Ruiz and Botello have found their stomping ground and are the champions of the Melilla Challenger 2018.
