Chingotto and Tello through to the final — can take their first title
Juan Tello and Federico Chingotto were the better team and won 6-3, 7-5. Paquito Navarro and Martin Di Nenno had too many mistakes. The team looked a bit unfocused, just like during yesterday's quarter-final when the team finally managed to win against Coki Nieto and Tito Allemandi.
That doesn't take anything away from Federico Chingotto and Juan Tello, who again show that they enjoy playing outdoors. The last time they were in the final was at the Valladolid Masters, also played outdoors but with faster conditions than here in Cascais.
— It´s a bit difficult conditions here. It´s slow. But we have to set the rhythm as we did in the quarter-final, said Federico Chingotto to Padel Alto about the semi-final after winning the quarter-final.
The team played a solid padel with few mistakes in today´s semi-final.
Federico Chingotto and Juan Tello started the season worse than expected. But lately, the fourth-seeded pair has stepped up. Since the success in Valladolid, the pair has gone to two semi-finals, one quarter-final, and now a final.
— It´s very even, and the important thing is to maintain throughout the tournaments. We try to get out the best of each tournament, Federico Chingotto says.
The winner of the match between Juan Lebron / Alejandro Galan and Lucho Capra / Maxi Sanchez now awaits in Sunday's final. Maxi Sanchez and Lucho Capra were the ones they lost to in the final of the Valladolid Masters.
In yesterday's quarter-final, Federico Chingotto and Juan Tello won against the newly formed pair of Javi Ruiz and Arturo Coello.
— It isn´t easy to face a new team. When you face them for the first time, you are uncomfortable. But the truth is that we can solve it quite well, Federico Chingotto says.
The team's last tournament victory came in Las Rozas in 2020.
