In the Miami qualifying in Madrid, both Vasquez and Windahl did.Coming all the way from the first round of pre-qualifying, Vasquez played with Frenchman Johan Bergeron and Windahl with Argentine Ramiro Pereyra. Amazingly, both Swedes won five consecutive matches in a span of 48 hours to make the qualifying finals, something which rarely happens.Vasquez makes Swedish padel historyVasquez/Bergeron played against the latter's fellow countryman Ben Tison and Spaniard Teodoro Zapata. Playing against much higher-ranked opposition and with five matches in their legs, Vasquez and Bergeron ran out of steam.They lost 6-3 6-2, and while Vasquez's dream of flying to Miami was over, he and Bergeron will have left the EuroIndoor Club with their heads held high.Most heads were turned earlier on that Sunday. Vasquez/Bergeron were playing against a multiple-time tournament winner in Mati Díaz and his partner Aris Patiniotis. A three-set epic saw the Swedish-French tandem break through in the final frame, running away with a 6-1 win to cause the upset of the tournament.? #LIVESCORE ?

He and Pereyra battled against Raúl Marcos and Javi García, where the first set was incredibly close.Both pairs breaking once, Windahl/Pereyra had a lot more chances to break that all went begging. They came to regret this in the eventual tie-break, where they were beaten 7-3. Marcos and García kicked on from there, winning the second set 6-2.Windahl had already made the second round of qualifying rounds last year, but impressively set a new personal best for himself and his country in Madrid.
