From Lugo to heaven
Marta Marrero and Alejandra Salazar defeated the Twins in a very special tournament for the Madrid-born player.
he great women’s final of the Lugo Open 2018 again faced in Galician lands, as happened last season in A Coruña, two of the best couples on the planet padel: Mapi and Majo Sánchez Alayeto against Alejandra Salazar and Marta Marrero.
In a particularly tough week for the Madrid player due to the death of her father, Alejandra Salazar stood in the final with Marta Marrero in front of the number one ranked couple. Two games took time to start hostilities. Two games and with tie to one in the third would reach the break that would mark the rest of the first round. Ale and Marta managed to break the serve of their rivals to get to the front of the set and walk steadily to achieve the first. In one of the most complete matches of Ale and Marta deactivated the defenses of the twins like never before. A new break would decide with a result of 6-2 on the side of Madrid and the Canary Islands.
The return to the track of the Marrero / Salazar whirlwind left the same sensations as at the end of the first round. So much that a third break would arrive at the beginning. 2-0 and hard work for the Twin Girls Sanchez Alayeto, not only because of the complicated of the comeback, but because in front they had two players who had already put cruising speed towards victory. Those of Juan Alday would manage to maintain that advantage until the decisive moment. With 5-3 and serve closed the match without hesitation, exactly as they walked throughout the game. 6-3. Alejandra before her most special victory. Alejandra Salazar and Marta Marrero Champions of the Lugo Open 2018. 09/09/2018 WPT
