Star pair knocked out by Virseda/Las Heras — Sainz to Alto: ”We have started without rhythm”

Lucia Sainz and Marta Marrero are already out of the Reus Open in the Round of 16. Veronica Virseda and Barbara Las Heras caused a surprise and are through to the quarter-finals. 

— We have just come back from injuries, and we have started without rhythm, says a disappointed Lucia Sainz to Padel Alto after the match. 

Veronica Virseda and Barbara Las Heras performed excellently to win 6-3, 6-4, and advance to the quarter-finals in Reus. 

Both Marta Marrero and Lucia Sainz had a poor performance on the slow court. 

— Now we have to work and improve. We have to suffer, Lucia Sainz says. 

Virseda and Las Heras will face the French Alix Collombon and Jessica Castello in the next match. This means that one of the teams will reach its first-ever semi-final in an Open tournament. 

It was far from the first surprise of the Reus Open on the women´s side. Yesterday, twins Mapi Alayeto och Majo Alayeto lost to super-promising Bea Caldera and Carmen Goenaga. Aranza Osoro and Victoria Iglesias are also eliminated.
