Team Miami Triumphs: A Glorious Victory at the Inaugural Reserve Cup

February 12, 2024

At the thrilling climax of the Reserve Cup in Miami, Martin Di Nenno and Franco Stupaczuk emerged victorious against Alejandro Galán and Juan Lebrón, marking a stellar performance throughout the tournament. Di Nenno not only triumphed in all three of his matchups against Galán but also played a pivotal role in leading Team Miami to glory at this inaugural event.

The final showdown was a showcase of high-caliber padel, with Di Nenno and Stupaczuk, often referred to as the “Superpibes,” securing a win with scores of 6/2, 5/7, and 14/12 against their formidable opponents. This victory at the Reserve Cup solidified their status as one of the premier pairs in the padel world today.

The tournament saw its share of drama, including a weather delay that led to an unexpected change in the lineup. Stupaczuk stepped in for Maxi Sánchez following a rain suspension, joining forces with Di Nenno to stage a remarkable comeback against Galán and Gonzalo Rubio. The Reserve Cup’s unique rule allowing for a single player substitution per match each day facilitated this strategic switch.

Di Nenno’s exceptional skill was on full display as he later teamed up with Juan Tello to achieve a rare feat—defeating Galán, this time partnered with Jon Sanz, marking Di Nenno’s second victory over Galán in a single day.

The third day of competition began with Álex Ruíz and Tello clinching a vital win against Javi Garrido and Mike Yanguas, securing Team Miami’s tournament victory with their combined efforts. The evening concluded with an outstanding performance from Coki Nieto and Jon Sanz, who overcame Momo González and Fede Chingotto. In a heartwarming moment, Jon Sanz made way for Rubio to step in and seal the final point, ending the tournament on a high note.

Team Miami’s commanding 13-5 win at the Reserve Cup is a testament to the event’s success and the global expansion of Padel. As another international competition wraps up, the padel community continues to witness the sport’s burgeoning popularity and competitive spirit.
