MALAGA. A few weeks ago, the padel world mourned the news that Mapi Alayeto has been diagnosed with the muscle disease multiple sclerosis. Today, many cheered as the twins made it to the semi-finals of the Malaga Open. It is the pair's best result of the season. 

It came as a shock to the padel world. Mapi Alayeto had been diagnosed with the muscle disease Multiple Diagnosis, MS. Both players and fans of the World Padel Tour wore shirts with the message "Fight Mapi."

Many wondered if she could continue playing padel. Especially after she withdrew from the Valencia Open in tears and skipped the last tournament in Las Rozas. Therefore, many were happy that the team was back in the starting line-up when the draw for the Malaga Open was completed. 

And what a comeback the twins Mapi and Majo are making in Malaga. They made it to the semi-finals after beating "Las Martas," Marta Ortega, and Marta Marrero by clear scores of 6-1, 7-5. 

This means that the effort in the Malaga Open is the team's best result of the season. 

In tomorrow's semi-final, the team will face world champions Alejandra Salazar and Gemma Triay.
