Bela and Lima also leave their mark in Monte-Carlo

Monday, 14 September, 2015

Fernando Belasteguin and Pablo Lima were devoted champions of the Monte-Carlo Padel Master after winning the final against Paquito Navarro and Matias Diaz by 6/3, 6/1. The “predators” also leave their mark at the Princedom and obtain their sixth consecutive championship.

The final went through quicker than expected in the Monaco Master. After a stunning beginning by Paquito and Matias, the number 1 World Padel Tour ranking couple appeared on the scene to maintain their hegemony of the circuit.

Bela and Lima could only win two points in the first three games. An unusual figure for this couple but it showed the reality we were living at the Chapiteau de Fontvieille main court.

A great number of errors and the maximum level of concentration showed by their rivals made possible the 3-0 on the scoreboard.  But after that break something was about to change…

When they came back on the court Belasteguin and Lima were again Belasteguin and Lima. The greedy and hungry predators slowly began to eat their adversaries’ moral. They managed to win six consecutive games to gain the first set and another three in the beginning of the second to get hold of a 9-0 partial.

Nothing or nobody could now change the direction. Paquito Navarro lost his nerves in the first break of the first set and that took its toll as well. The Sevillian was never the same again. Matias was not perfect either and committed some errors that meant a tremendous advantage for the number ones.

This way, Belasteguin and Lima win a championship that will be marked in the history of this sport. They win the first edition of the Monte-Carlo Padel Master, a tournament that will also be remembered in time.

It is the end of an unforgettable experience in the Monaco Princedom that opens the doors of World Padel Tour to the world. The great organization of Monte-Carlo International Sports enabled the dream to come true.

The best padel on earth flies quickly to the Spanish capital where the Estrella Damm Madrid Open is already in play.
