We were eagerly awaiting the first words of Ale Galan and Juan Lebron after the ubiquitous final lost face Tapia and Coello at the Chile Open.

two short sentences

It took 24 hours for the world numbers 1 to write these two little sentences:

Congratulations Arturo and Agus for the deserved victory.

As a team, we apologize for what happened yesterday in Chile.

Juan Lebron and Ale Galan

Apologies not accepted by a large majority of fans if the comments on social networks are to be believed. Some comments try to find excuses for this “lack of fair play” mentioning in particular the youth of these two players who “have to learn".

“The worst number 1s in the history of the padel"

Other comments are bloodier: “these are the worst number 1s in the history of the padel".

Even if some think that the message is “too short”, we can think that the communication agencies of the players have fought all day to find these two lines and try to calm the situation.

Fault confessed is half redressed ?

Time will do its work. Either way, for Lebron/Galan, there's no choice but to let the storm pass. Everyone will be very attentive to the mindset of the Spanish pair and the behavior of the public towards them at the WPT Paraguay Open. Will they be able to pull through and play well in Asunción?
