The pairing have won the Estrella Damm Barcelona Master after winning one of the most spectacular finals of the 2021 season against Fede Chingotto and Juan Tello.
Martin di Nenno lifted his first World Padel Tour title this Sunday. He did it alongside Paquito Navarro at the Estrella Damm Barcelona Master, in one of the most spectacular finals in the history of the circuit.
Navarro and Di Nenno won their first title of the year after defeating Fede Chingotto and Juan Tello 6-2, 3-6, 6-4.
It was an unprecedented final at the Palau Sant Jordi, a duel of pretenders to the first title of the season between the pairing of Paquito Navarro and Martin Di Nenno against Fede Chingotto and Juan Tello.
It was the fourth final for Paquito and Martin, third for Fede and Juan, with both pairings looking for their first title.
With that extra pressure and all the excitement in the stands for two of the most cheered pairings, a match started that, far from what was expected due to the equality between the two pairings, Navarro and Di Nenno dominated with two breaks and a 4-0 lead in less than 25 minutes of play.
From that moment on, Paquito Navarro and Martin Di Nenno took the first set 6-2, activating their resistance mode and even saving the counter break on two occasions on golden point.
Tello and Chingotto weren’t going to give up so easily. They didn’t lose their nerve in a match that had become complicated and raised their level in the second set.
As a result, they got their chance, and in the fifth game, the score was 4-1 in favour of the Argentine pairing. They finished with a 6-3 lead that left everything to be decided in the third set.
The third set finished off this final as one of the matches of the year. The crowd went wild and the four players were winning the title.
When the 5-3 with a break for Di Nenno and Navarro seemed to sentence the match, a timely counter break on their serve to win gave options to an insatiable Chingotto and Tello. But history had a hole in store for Martin.
Di Nenno, in his last effort, blocked a ball that gave him the match closing with 6-4 his first title as a professional. Paquito Navarro and Martin Di Nenno champions of the Estrella Damm Barcelona Master 2021.
