After experiencing a huge disappointment at the end of the 2022 season, losing the place of world number 1 during the last tournament against Salazar / Triay, Ari Sanchez and Paula Josemaria were finally able to finish a season in first place together and become the second pair the most successful in the WPT behind the Alayeto twins, who, as a symbol, retired at the end of the year.
From the first tournament of the season, in Abu Dhabi, the Team 100% Head showed that she lost a battle at the end of last season but not the war. Having Triay and Salazar with a score of 6/3 6/3, Ari and Paula launched their season perfectly. But behind them, their biggest rivals responded with three tournaments won consecutively.
We thought Josemaria and Sanchez were on the ropes but they recovered very quickly and went on to win four titles in a row. If Salazar and Triay still seemed to be in the game at mid-season, the Madrilenian's injury would change everything...
With Brea and Gonzalez as their only real rivals, Angel Gonzalez's players were going to crush everything in their path, achieving a partial with 12 tournaments won out of 15 possible! Enough to secure first place on the WPT from mid-October.
If the end of the season will have smiled much more on Delfi and Bea, Ari and Paula remain the players of the 2023 season. With 14 titles won, they had an exceptional year, and are more than ever the pair to beat on the women's circuit. Who will be able to resist them in 2024?
