WORLD TOUR: END OF THE WAY OF THE ARGENTINE PAIRS IN ESPINHO

WORLD TOUR - OFFICIAL SITE

This Friday it was the end of Argentina's participation in the 4-star Open in Espinho, one of the stages of the FIVB World Tour. The female pair composed by Ana Gallay and Fernanda Pereyra was eliminated from the tournament after falling in a tight game against the Germans Kim Behrens/Sandra Ittlinger. Meanwhile, Nicolas Capogrosso and Julian Azaad opened their participation today in the Main Draw, but fell in their two games against Russia and Turkey and were eliminated.

After qualifying in the second place in Pool D with an important victory over Elsa/Liliana from Spain, Gallay/Pereyra faced Behrens/Ittlinger for a spot in the quarterfinals. The Germans started better, but the national team reacted with a great second set and pushed the definition to the tie break. There, in spite of the parity, it was the European team that closed the game by 2-1 (21-18, 14-21, 15-11).

On the men's side and in their debut, Capogrosso and Azaad fell to the Russians Konstantin Semenov and Ilya Leshukov by 2-1 (21-16, 19-21, 13-15) and then played the second match of the group looking for their last chance of qualifying against the Turkey pair composed by Murat Giginoglu and Volkan Gögtepe. There, the Argentines couldn't find their best shape and fell by 2-0 with scores by 21-18 and 21-13.

This way ended the national performance in the contest with the female duo in the 17th place and the male in the 25th. Now, both will continue the tour in which they will participate in different stages of the World Tour.
