After Ceuta, here comes Rotterdam. Another victory for Argentinean Leandro Augsburger, who won in the FIP RISE Padel Copa his second consecutive title. The partner changed, not the score: if in Spain, with Augsburger, had played Pablo Castillo Valverde, in the Netherlands it was the turn of another Argentine, Valentino Libaak. In the final, the two Albicelestes beat 7-5 6-4 the first seed in the draw, the pair formed by the Italian-Argentinean Denis Perino and Facundo Dominguez. For Augsburger also a touching dedication: “For you, my uncle. Thank you for your help from above and for guiding me through every ball. I send you a kiss to the sky. And thank you to all the people who came out to support us, creating a fantastic atmosphere”.
Among the women, success for An-Sophie Mestach and Helena Wyckaert (Belgium), who won a very balanced final against the Dutch Marcella Koek and Stephanie Weterings, which ended in the third set (7-6 3-6 6-1). “One of the most beautiful matches I have ever played on a padel court – exulted Mestach -. Helena, hopefully we can play some more. And thanks also to the only two Belgians who cheered for us. You made the difference”. One was her boyfriend Geoffrey.
