Vienna Open - Top favorites dominate in the women's quarterfinals
The women's quarterfinals of the World Padel Tour Open Vienna Open saw the highest-ranked pairs assert their dominance, setting up an exciting clash between the world's best four pairs in the tournament's semifinals.
In the morning's first match, Ariana Sánchez and Paula Josemaría had no trouble defeating Barrera and Martínez, who were playing their first quarterfinals as a pair. The world number one duo displayed a remarkable superiority on the court, and after just over an hour of play, they secured a convincing victory with a score of 6/1 6/3.
Their opponents will be Marta Ortega and Sofía Araujo, who overcame the Sánchez Alayeto twins in straight sets. The twins failed to find an answer to their opponents' game, as Ortega and Araujo secured their spot in the semifinals with a commanding 6/2 6/3 win.
A rematch of the last final
Alejandra Salazar and Gemma Triay claimed victory in the morning's second match against the resilient pair of Icardo and Riera. The Spanish-Argentine duo did everything in their power to overcome their opponents' near-perfect play, but Triay's power and Salazar's finesse in the latter part of the match proved too much for the tournament's sixth-seeded pair, who ultimately lost the match 7/5 6/0.
The semifinal day of the Vienna Open will commence this Saturday at 11:00 a.m., starting with the match between Sánchez/Josemaría and Ortega/Araujo, followed immediately by the encounter between Brea/González and Salazar/Triay.
