Doubles, especially men’s, are probably the best advertisement for wheelchair tennis. Perhaps the XXV final of Płock Orlen Polish Open was not the best match in the tournament’s history, but the level grew almost with every game. And along with the level of play, the level of emotions rose too. Dramaturgy also can not be faulted, what we have proof on the attached picture.
The player who fell chasing the ball was Martin de la Puente. Agustin Ledesma first made sure that his partner did not hurt himself, then helped him return to the playing position, then they saved together few setpoints and, finally, when they took the lead in second set tietiebreaker, they immediately stripped their opponents, Ezequiel Casco and Stefanos Diamantis, from hope for super tiebreak. 6:3, 7:6(8) and you are invited to prize ceremony.
Oh, it is not now, but only at the gala dinner. Between one and the next dish two Argentineans, the Spaniard and the Greek will certainly have something to mention.
