It still seems unthinkable today to see the World Padel Tour disappear before the end of 2023 in favor of the new professional circuit of padel : the FIP QSI TOUR. However, Ale Galan's comments in response to World Padel Tour put us in doubt.

Indeed, the Word Padel Tour relies on the contract he has with the top 20 players to push them”to only play the professional circuit of padel, namely the World Padel Tour"

If players don't continue with the WPT, it will definitely be "because of behavior"of this one with the players,"who their harm".

So it is the World Padel Tour who "would violate good faith by its unjustified allegations and which involves serious and irreparable harm".

Under these conditions, the conclusion seems inevitable, and it is the world number one padel who is also the President of the Professional Association of padel which echoes it:

"Accusing me of any type of breach of contract, your unwarranted attempt to hinder my professional development and promotion, your unjustified allegations, breach of your good faith imply a breach of contract on the part of the World Padel Tour".

Therefore, for Ale Galan, the World Padel Tour would have already crossed the yellow line.

In the event of a breach of contract, the players would be completely free to go where they want. They would be disengaged from the World Padel Tour not because the players broke the contract, but because the World Padel Tour did so by his behavior.

Is this the beginning of the process on the part of the players to free themselves from the World Padel Tour as soon as possible ?

You understood it, it is about a war of attrition between the Word Padel Tour and the PPA/FIP/QSI alliance. And the saga is certainly only beginning.
