Whatever the outcome of the men's final of the Greenweez Paris Major, Spaniard Arturo Coello will become the new No. 1 in the International Federation of Tennis rankings. padel. At only 21 years old, the native of Valladolid displaces Juan Lebron and Ale Galan, who lost yesterday against Navarro and Chingotto. Coello and Tapia had already deprived them of their throne on the WPT circuit, which they had occupied for three years.
Agustin Tapia, who played fewer tournaments last year on the circuit Premier Padel, counting for the FIP ranking, is currently only 8th in this ranking, which explains why the pair was only seeded 3 in Paris, behind Lebron / Galan and Di Nenno / Stupa.
But the Argentinian should soon climb further in the hierarchy of the FIP, which will soon become one with that of the World Padel Tour, bought by QSI, the company that manages the circuit Premier Padel. In 2024, Tapia and Coello should therefore be at the top of the unified ranking, barring an accident.
