Marc López does not want to retire yet
After an hour and 23 minutes, Feliciano and Marc López triumphed in their debut in the doubles draw after an agonizing 13-11 in the final super tie break, a very exciting victory especially for the player from Barcelona, who has decided that 2022 will be his last tournament on Barcelona clay.
With a lot of humidity and under the lights, but encouraged by a very supportive crowd to two of the most beloved tennis players by fans and who have been watching them play every spring for so many years, Marc López and Feliciano López have managed to advance to the next round, also beating the duo that was the top favorite for the title, Rajeev Ram and Joe Salisbury.
In the next round of the Barcelona Open Banc Sabadell, Marc and Feliciano will face the Dutch Koolhof and the British Skupski. In the event of a possible victory the would play the semifinals of the same tournament that saw them lift the trophy as champions in 2018. They have the same ambition as then. And the desire to say farewell as they deserve.
