In a once again busy schedule, the best players in the world of padel must make choices. And as they have made for Bordeaux P2, the stars of the Spanish selection have decided to skip the European Championships which will take place in Cagliari from July 22 to 27.

Thus, it is without Arturo Coello, Ale Galan, Juan Lebron, Paquito Navarro, Miguel Yanguas and Javi Garrido among the men and without Ari Sanchez, Paula Josemaria, Bea Gonzalez, Gemma Triay, Alejandra Salazar, Claudia Fernandez and Tamara Icardo that the Spain will present itself in Sardinia.

Despite these absences, the selections of Juanjo Gutierrez and Iciar Montés, led by big names like Alex Ruiz, Momo Gonzalez and Martita Ortega will be the big favorites of the competition.

For the men, Alex and Momo will be accompanied by the experienced Javi Rico, the powerful young Leal, Cardona and Arroyo, as well as two players who were not necessarily expected in the selection: José Diestro and Teo Zapata.

Among the women, we find a clever mix of experience with the veterans Sainz and Llaguno, the young prodigies Ustero and Alonso, but also Caldera. Three players in their prime will also be there: Ortega, her partner Virseda, and the 8th player in the world, Jessica Castello.

You have understood, these are not the strongest Spanish selections we have known, but concretely it is difficult to see who could prevent the Iberian players from leaving with two titles from Cagliari...
