Luck was not on the Spanish side on the first day of the Indonesia Open 2021, tournament of the World Tour Super 1000 category in which we have the participation of Clara Azurmendi and Bea Corrales. And it is that in the two meetings in which there was national representation, we were on the verge of advancing to the next round.
The first match with a Spanish accent was that of the women’s doubles, in which Azurmendi and Corrales they measured the Malaysian Pearly Tan and Thinaah Muralitharan. It was a tremendously even match and, unfortunately, it was decided by details in favor of the Asians (22-20 and 21-19).
It was a duel in which the Malaysians took the initiative, but the Spanish duo never lowered their arms and fought with everything to maintain their chances of victory at all times.
Shortly after came the premiere of Clara Azurmendi in the individual table, against the French Leonice Huet. It was a duel of maximum equality during the first game, since the San Sebastian at no time allowed her rival to achieve a wide advantage. Of course, at the decisive moment the gala was more successful and the first set was scored. Things were not so even in the second round, as the Frenchwoman managed three 5-0 sets to go on the scoreboard and seal her pass to the round of 16.
This Wednesday will be the premiere of Bea Corrales in the individual box. The Madrilenian faces the French Marie Batomene. It is the second time Corrales you see the faces with Batomene and she will surely want revenge, since in the only duel in which the French have faced, she won 21-16 and 21-18.
