What an atmosphere in Malmö Padel Open 1000, where the “vikings" Alejandro Galán and Juan Lebrón triumphed. The post-match interview tells us a lot about the state of mind of the former world number 1s.

At the microphone of Nacho, the interviewer of World Padel Tour, Galan spoke about this victory, but also about his partner: “We are Vikings here; it was a great tournament”.

Galan praised the resilience of his partner, Lebrón, after a difficult year: “I continue to congratulate Juan for the way he recovered.” He highlighted his ability to show “the best padel that he has” despite the absence of the “power of the Lobo”.

Lebron’s words are also interesting: “It cost me a lot to reach this level… He helped me a lot, with the academy, with Jorge, we all knew reinvent ourselves with a different game, which does not necessarily rely on power“, thus coming to better understand the words of his partner concerning him.

The Spanish pair can be proud of themselves since they won 4 times out of the last 6 deniers. “Happy after such a difficult year, very satisfied to reach the end of the season at this level” explains Galan. Lebron concludes: “We didn't imagine winning four tournaments, but now that we see ourselves like this, we will aspire to everything that is possible”
