It is a sad day for the Padel world. Indeed we learned with amazement on this Monday 11 January the death of the Argentine player Elias Estrella.

Elias Estrella was 20 years old and died today from a car accident while going to Paraguay to participate in an exhibition of Padel. He was in the company of Martin Di Nenno, another great hope of the Padel World also injured by this accident (he would suffer a fracture of the femur).

Elias Estrella was one of the great hope of the world Padel, ranked in the 52 world rank of the World Padel Tour. He has long teamed with Andreas Brito until the end of the 2015 season. He was preparing to team up this year with the legendary Gaby Recca with whom he had great ambitions for this 2016 season. He came to France at the inauguration of the WinWin Padel Center last October and he shared his talent with us on Padel and his kindness outside.

The entire team of Padel Magazine extend sincere condolences to his family and his family.

Rest in peace Elias ....
