Mike Yanguas and Coki Nieto took their first title in Calanda


The number one couple of the tournament, Miguel Yanguas and Jorge Nieto, were crowned champions of the WPT Bajo Aragon Challenger, after beating Lamperti and Sanz by 6/4 6/4.

This Sunday, for the final of the fourth WPT Challenger of the season, the couples one and three of the tournament faced each other in the final: Mike Yanguas and Coki Nieto vs Jon Sanz and Miguel Lamperti.

Yanguas and Nieto started the match in great form, breaking their opponents' serve to take the lead. The Sanz/Lamperti couple showed the wear and tear suffered in the semifinals, and after a short break in which Jon Sanz had to be treated due to the heat, the number ones took the opportunity to get the second break and take the set 6/4.

In the second part, Lamperti and Sanz started with a 3-0 lead, but Yanguas and Nieto were quick to respond. Through a strong game and neutralizing Lamperti's smash (which was being definitive due to the heat) Coki and Mike went on a run of 5 consecutive games to turn the set around and take the match by 6/4 6/4.

"I don't know what it is about this place that makes me play so well, we've had a great level all week. We are very happy to have achieved this title" said Coki Nieto, after defending the title won in 2021 with Adrian Allemandi as a partner.

After losing the final in Albacete and reaching the semi-finals of the last Malaga Open, Yanguas and Nieto won their long awaited first title of the season in Calanda.
