This Wednesday, at the start of the Main Draw of the Open Anapa World Tour stop, the Argentine pair obtained two victories, that qualified them for the first round. They are one of the eight teams that started undefeated this important competition that helps them win international experience.

At their debut in Pool E, the Argentine girls (that stand as 5th favourite team in the competition in another sign of their improvement at international level) overcame the German Behrens-Seyfferth 2-1 (21-15, 18-21, 15-11).
