The Triay-Sáinz couple was far superior to the Malaga and Madrid pair and won in two sets with a double 6-3
They ran out of the end and for the second consecutive time. On their way to a new title -this time at the Sardinia Open- Bea González from Malaga and her partner, Marta Ortega from Madrid, ran into a wall, the one made up of couple number five in the World Padel Tour ranking, Gemma Triay, and Lucía Sáinz. The Menorcan and the Catalan resolved their semifinal this Sunday morning in two forceful sets with a double 6-3, 6-3, canceling the options of the youngest pair on the circuit.
The arduous comeback that González and Ortega had to force, against Riera and Araújo in the quarterfinals of the previous day, seemed to take its toll, because the pair number three of the ‘ranking’, a priori favorites, did not find themselves comfortable at any time during the match. Much more involved in the game and taking the reins from the beginning, it did not take long for the rivals to sentence the first set, with Mahón’s (Triay), especially successful, adding most of the winning points.
The comeback of the Malaga and Madrid was expected in the second set to force at least the arrival of a third to decide the match. At the Ortega service, they were awarded the first point, but Triay and Sáinz kept a march above the entire match and took advantage of every unforced error by their rivals to continue to distance themselves on the scoreboard. It seemed to break the game with the 4-2 in which the young paleña once again showed her best shot and her desire to chase each ball, but at the next point, the game was finally decided. The Catalan and the Menorcan achieved with a 6-3, 6-3, the pass to their second final of the season.
