If you have followed the previas of the World Padel Tour Miami Open, which were contested in Madrid, you will have noticed that a former tennis star was among the qualified pairs.

This player is of course the Italian Roberta Vinci, former number 7 at the WTA in singles and former number 1 in doubles!

Retired from the courts since 2018, the one who is now 39 years old was quick to find a new passion: the padel ! And like we told you in a previous article, this competitor at heart now wants to see how far she can go on the 20×10.

The least we can say is that the season has started very well for Roberta, who is associated with one of the best Italians on the circuit, Giulia Sussarello. Together, the two compatriots who started in preprevias managed to win four consecutive matches to climb into the final table of the Miami Open! They will be part of 5 transalpine present in Florida !

There, a very difficult match awaits them next Tuesday against the seeded number 6 of the tournament, Iglesias/Osoro!
