Sanyo took revenge on Bela: ”It's victories like this that show strength”

MALMO. Would Sanyo Gutierrez and Agustin Tapia take revenge on their old partner Fernando Belasteguin? The answer was yes. And what a match the crowd was treated to in the Malmo Arena in Sweden. 

In three sets, Sanyo Gutierrez and Agustin Tapia lost their last match against their old partner, Fernando Belasteguin, and his new partner Arturo Coello. This time it was also three sets, but this time Sanyo Gutierrez and Agustin Tapia were the stronger pair.

— I'm very happy. It's victories like this that show strength when you win matches like this. That's different from matches you win 6-2, 6-2. These are the kind of matches that get you to the top of the rankings, Sanyo Gutierrez says to Padel Alto. 

Fernando Belasteguin and Arturo Coello started the strongest and won the first set, 7-5. In the second, they also started the best and ended with a 5-4 lead in their serve. The match could have been decided there. 

But Agustin Tapia and Sanyo Gutierrez wanted otherwise against their old partner. 

— We work on our level and believe in it. We work on the mental part, Sanyo Gutierrez says. 

They came back into the match, turned the second set to 7-5. In the third, they were the strongest from start to finish and won, 6-3. 

What did you change to turn the game around?

— Positivity was the key. Sometimes we have some bad luck, but it can always turn around. Then there were many other things. The level of our lobs was better, and we neutralized their smash and so on.
