It's a very sad day for the world of Padel. Indeed we learned with amazement on Monday January 11 the death of Argentine player Elias Estrella.
Elias Estrella was 20 years old and died today in a car accident on his way 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 from a fractured femur).
Elias Estrella was one of the great hopes of the Padel world, ranked 52nd in the world circuit Padel tower. He teamed up with Andreas Brito for a long time 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 had come to France during the inauguration of the WinWin center Padel last October and he shared his talent with us on the Padel and also his kindness outside.
The entire team of Padel Magazine sends its deepest condolences to his family and loved ones.
Rest in peace Elias ....
