The three crying.

Fernando Belasteguín cries, who has just been eliminated from the last tournament in Argentine soil of his career.

But also his executioners, the number one in the world, his compatriot Agustín Tapia and the Spanish Arturo Coello.

Because?

Because ‘Bela’ is the best padel player in history. Because he was the idol of Tapia and Coello. And because, furthermore, he was a partner of both Agus and Arturo at the dawn of their careers.

They are not the only ones. While it rings, deafening, the “Olé, olé, olé, olé, Belaaa, Belaaaa” that comes down from the stands of a packed Malvinas Islands stadium, more than one finds it difficult to hold back tears.

The idol leaves. The crack says goodbye. We will no longer see him play a professional game here, in his country.

What has been said, Tapia and Coello were the uncomfortable perpetrators. They defeated Bela and his partner, Juan Tello from Córdoba, 6-3 and 6-1 in the quarterfinals of the Premier Padel in Mar del Plata.

There were no equivalences. But it’s anecdotal.

The more than eight thousand people who inhabit the stands are standing applauding.

Bela cries. He covers his face with his arm, he can’t stop the cataract.

Nobody looks at the young Tapia and Coello. Winners. Leaders of the ranking. Young and impeccable.

The spotlight is on the king leaving his throne.
