A final never seen before is coming up in Palermo! La Dolfina Sancor Seguros and Las Monjitas will face off on Saturday 15/12 in court 1, starting at 17.00.
With great expectations the polo world is looking forward to Saturday December 15, when in the mythical field 1 of Palermo, the 125th edition of the Argentine Polo Open HSBC is taking place. In unique final, the multiple winner La Dolfina Sancor Seguros, who defends five consecutive titles in Palermo, will face the surprising Las Monjitas, who will play for the first time in a final of the Palermo Open. For the Cañuelas, however, it will be their 18th final (so far they won 11 and lost 6) in 19 Palermo tournaments since the club’s inception in 2000.
There are big differences between the two opponents. While the four players of La Dolfina accumulate 36 titles (14 Cambiaso, 8 MacDonough and Nero, 6 Stirling), on the side of Las Monjitas, three of its four members will play for the first time the final of the maximum world competition. Guillermo Caset playrd in the Plermo Open 12 times, Facundo Sola (7 participations) and Santiago Toccalino (5 participations). Only Hilario Ulloa will play his second final, after having played the decisive match in 2013 for Alegria, which fell to just La Dolfina.
The numbers of the protagonists of the Cañuelas ensemble are impressive: Adolfo Cambiaso will play his 22nd final in 26 Palermo Open; Pablo Mac Donough his 13th in 17; Juan M. Nero his 12th in 15; and Uruguayan David Stirling (h) his 9th in 10!
