The Cuatro y Medio final, originally due to be held on 27th December, has been delayed for the second time. It will now take place on 11th December. The new postponement was requested by Aimar Olaizola, who is still in pain due to a fracture to the tip of the middle finger of his left hand. This is the second time this year that the LEP.M has authorised a two week postponement after the Manomanista final was delayed on the appeal of Xala, who was stuck by appendicitis. At first, the injury to Aimar’s finger was thought to be a minor crack, but when the swelling failed to abate, further scans were carried out and a fuller fracture was revealed. The player, his doctor and Asegarce met on Tuesday to discuss a course of action after a training session in which it became clear he would not be able to play this week.
