Martín de la Puente is eliminated along with Gustavo Fernández from the US Open doubles draw


The Spanish tennis player Martín de la Puente will not be able to choose to reissue his doubles title in the wheelchair tournament of the United States Open, the fourth ‘Grand Slam’ of the season that is played on hard courts, after falling on Wednesday in the quarterfinals with the Argentine Gustavo Fernández.

The Galician achieved a historic victory in New York last year, accompanied then by the Frenchman Nicole Peifer, but this time he could not extend his adventure with his partner, despite the fact that they started as the second seed and had played this year the final of Roland Garros.

But the Spaniard and the Argentine could not assert their ranking against the Japanese tennis players Tokito Oda, number one in the individual world, and Takuya Miki, who prevailed in a tight match of more than two hours 7-6(3), 6 -4.
