The French number 1, Benjamin Tison, returns for Laurent Trupiano from We Love Tennis on his first steps in the padel until World Padel Tour. Politics, tournaments, player associations, Benjamin says it all.


As a Word player Padel Tour (WPT), inspired by the arrival of QSI with the support of the International Federation of padel to create another professional circuit?

I think this is good news, especially since QSI's strategy is to further enhance the role of the players, and in particular the prize-money. That's the problem with the WPT, the winner of a stage earns an average of 9 euros and that's not enough. The arrival of QSI is logical, because the padel explode all over the world. It is therefore also necessary to structure the high level in terms of marketing and entertainment. In 2022, there will therefore be two circuits, and I will play both. Logically, I will play 34 tournaments; That's a lot, but I'm not going to complain!

Technical question: is it really useful to have a two-handed backhand padel ?
