After entering the tournament through a WC, Spaniards Antonio Fernandez (29) and Jose Garcia Diestro (32) were crowned champions of the APT Open de Tenerife. The pair - ranked 17th on the WPT circuit - had a brilliant performance throughout the entire competition, dropping only one set in 5 matches played.
In the final, Fernandez and Garcia Diestro started the match overwhelmingly. The Spaniards were superior to their opponents at all times, and managed to take the victory by 6-2 6-2.
"We have completed a great week. Yesterday was a very tough three-set match, and today luckily we won the match in two sets, which was a relief because otherwise it would have been very difficult to keep the rhythm from a physical point of view. It was a really fun tournament for us, and finally we won, so I am very happy," said Pincho Fernandez after winning his first APT title.
The APT circuit will return to action on Tuesday 2 August, with the round of 32 of the Canarias Open.
